Increasing Quality of Life One Pop at a Time!

In 2010, The Jel Sert Company partnered with ACCO and initiated the Take a Pop, Share a Smile program to help children across the U.S. cope with cancer and all that it brings to their lives. These brave children face many challenges, one of them being the side effects of the invasive therapies used to treat the disease. Freezer pops are often used to help children manage the pain while keeping them hydrated. The program involves the donation of freezers and a continuous supply of freezer pops to cancer treatment centers throughout the country. Millions of pops will be contributed with the hope that a few more smiles will be shared.

" The patients and families are very excited about the popsicles, and the design on the freezer is very friendly and colorful. It is amazing that something as simple as popsicles can make a child happy and help them get through a tough time."  

-Inova Fairfax Hospital for Children

“Many of our patients absolutely LOVE choosing a freezer pop when they come to clinic for lab draws and/or chemotherapy treatment. For some, it has become a highlight of their visit. It's amazing how something so simple can make such a difference for children who are going through such a difficult time in their lives...even the teenagers enjoy it!  The freezer pops have brought to our clinic an element of child-like happiness and a reminder that simple pleasures are sometimes the best.  ”
