Five years ago, Pip Forbes had the vision to revolutionise the way kids and their families experience hospital. She wanted to provide entertainment, distraction and positive experiences for kids in the hospital and so, Juiced TV was born.
There are a number of different elements that make Juiced TV what it is today, from days of ‘Hand’s on Happiness’ at the Queensland Children’s Hospital, where the crew organise workshops, entertainment and special guests to come to the hospital and break up the hospital journey. “On top of that then we have kids who host or interview the special guest that we have,” Pip explained.
“Everything is captured, caught on film to create and make that positive memory something that lasts and then it becomes part of our weekly TV show that we broadcast online and also on the bedside entertainment systems at the hospital,” Pip explained.
“The biggest thing that I think has made Juiced a success over the past five years has for sure been the team and the crew that we have to bring everything to life,” Pip said. “While it was an idea that I had five years ago it takes manpower and heart and passion to be able to bring every experience to life and to be able to make every child feel like they matter and that they’re empowered.”
The impact Juiced TV has made over the year is invaluable to the kids and families that need it most. If you’d like to donate to their efforts, visit their website.
