This KING 5 Children's HealthLink special hosted by Jean Enersen features segments on children served by Seattle Children's Hospital, and the work by other young people in the community to support the care and research conducted at the hospital.

In the special, you will meet Clayton Beasley, a kidney patient whose experiences inspired him to sing.

And you'll meet the young members of several junior guilds that raise money for the hospital, including the Pink Bandana Guild, the Pearly Whites Guild, and the Pink Polka Dots Guild.

You'll also be introduced to Tiffany Leahy, a young author who is donating her time at Seattle Children's -- in addition to some of the profits from her books.

Then there are the students from Mercer Island High School who donate books and reading lessons to children who pass through the Odessa Brown Clinic, and the students from Rainier Beach High School who make blankets and cards for Seattle Children's patients.

You'll meet the students at the University of Washington and Seattle University who are organizing dance marathons to raise money for the hospital.

And you will meet the young girls behind Coins for Chloe and Callie's Coffee.
