Rosie Outreach is an international children's outreach program. Our mission is to help children grow as confident, and caring human beings through increasing awareness and striving to reduce the negative impact of stressful or traumatic events and situations that affect the development, health and well-being of infants, children, youth and families. There is a wide variety of stressful and potentially traumatic events that can overwhelm a child's natural ability to cope and heal. Experiences related to health care and hospitalization can lead to feelings of fear, confusion, loss of control, and isolation that can inhibit their natural development and have negative effects on their physical and emotional health. We strive to provide children with opportunities for play, and self-expression activities so that they feel safe, and as comfortable as possible in health care settings and other challenging environments. Our care packages and ROSE gear are donated to hospitals worldwide by ROSIE ambassadors dressed as storybook characters. If you know of a child who is going through a traumatic situation and hasn't received a ROSIE care package, go to the "Refer A Child" page to request a hospital delivery.
Rosie Outreach honors and builds upon the legacy of our sister Kristen Rose “Rosie Toes” and our father Richard K. Campbell who entered into heaven after a tragic car accident. Krissy was a beautiful, loving, compassionate, giggly seven year old who served others any way she could. From helping her mom take care of her little sisters to volunteering her time in various charities.
Richard Campbell was a man of strong moral code that informed every aspect of his daily walk. His faith inspired him to serve others. He was renowned for giving of his time and energy to help those in need. He loved people of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds; he had a heart for people. With his gentle, unassuming manner, he made a profound impression on each person he encountered. He was a man full of interests and aptitudes and he was able to integrate them seamlessly through his art, his craftsmanship, his creativity, his faith, his comedy, his sense of family and community, and his sense of service. He was thoughtful, compassionate, funny and full of passion. Rosie Toes Outreach Project installs that same thoughtful, sensitive and integrated approach to impact those around us through faith, hope and love.
