Pandas for Children with Arthritis
Pandas hold a special place in the hearts of AOII sisters. They are our mascot and we love to provide stuffed pandas to provide comfort to children with arthritis. Each year, AOII donates hundreds of stuffed panda bears to keep children company while they are receiving their infusion treatments and to the children attending the American Juvenile Arthritis Organization (AJAO) Annual Conference. AOIIs attending AOII International Convention bring stuffed panda bears to add to the pile of bears collected at the event. For opportunities to donate pandas, please see our chapter's calendar page.
