Founder & CEO, Happy Hope Foundation
Emi Burke founded the Happy Hope Foundation in 2011 with a goal of enlisting corporate and community partners to assemble and distribute activity kits called Happy Hope Bags to hospitalized children. Born out of a desire to bring joy to children receiving medical care after becoming the parent of a young son with significant disabilities, this simple idea has touched the lives of more than 650,000 children so far, in over 420 hospitals across every state in the U.S. and a growing list of international locations.
