We Are More Than Students, We Are Students Who Care. This video was created by Think Picture Productions for StudentsCare, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that empowers college students to engage in meaningful volunteer experiences. The StudentsCare Hospital Buddy Program matches college students one-on-one with inpatient children being treated for cancer. Students engage the children in activities, organize birthday parties, celebrate important milestones, and provide opportunities for the children to have fun and “just be kids,” even while in the hospital. Erica Sokol, who founded StudentsCare at the University of Florida, seeks to spread her program to college campuses around the country.
