"Jack Sparrow" Visits Hospital

Depp... I gotta take my hat off to the guy, not only did he donate $2 million to the hospital that treated his daughter, but he showed up in secret dressed as Jack Sparrow and told stories to kids there. Brings a tear to this old pirates eye...

It was probably nice to do the visit without all the media. Just him and kids. B)

Hospital visits are some of my favorite events; although as a parent it can be hard to see these children hooked up to IVs, in wheelchairs, half-sick and hurting.

One visit I was asked to go through the chemotherapy room because I was in Jedi and could navigate between the beds. That was the toughest visit. B)

In this article I found it also mentions the connection this hospital has to Disney. Goes back to Peter Pan, check it out here in this article:

Showing up as a character at the children's ward of a hospital is an awesome thing to do. I myself and other friends have done that before in our superhero costumes. It's such a wonderful feeling to do that. The looks on the children is priceless! :huh:

Let me get this straight. The Disney Company bought the rights to peter pan from the hospital and made 'billions' on it and only after Depp gave money, did the Disney company pony up some as well.

Good for Depp. I'm sure it wasn't Disney's idea to pony up as well. Before you start shooting me with yer flintlocks, I'm referring to the Disney Corporation, not Walt Disney the person.
