Philo Helping CHildren At John Hopkins

Philo Inc., the entertainment and lifestyle focused TV streaming service based in San Francisco, has joined Boston based Bright Spirit Children’s Foundation to bring entertainment and joy to the critically ill children and families who reside at the Children’s House at Johns Hopkins, one of the leading pediatric hospital residential facilities in the United States. The Children’s House at Johns Hopkins provides accommodations to some of the sickest children being treated at the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, Maryland. Thanks to the generous contribution of Philo Inc., families now have more than 60 live and on demand top rated television channels to entertain them during their stay at the hospital. The Bright Spirit Children’s Foundation generously donated new state-of-the-art smart TVs for each guest room at the Children’s House and for all major common areas.

The Children’s House at Johns Hopkins was established in 1992 and provides over 1,600 individual overnight accommodations each month to pediatric patients and their families.  “This is an amazing contribution to our guests who stay here, and it will provide them with many hours of entertainment and distraction from the daily medical treatments that everyone participates in,” said Danna Gildersleeve, Director of Operations for The Children’s House. This contribution was made possible through the efforts of Mitchell Freund, Director of Sales for Philo, Inc., and Stuart Kaplan, President and Founder of Bright Spirit Children’s Foundation.
