Boredom Busters

Boredom Busters, Inc. seeks to cure the ‘boredom epidemic’ affecting pediatric patients. In January 2010, Boredom Busters partnered with the Boston Medical Center. Through fundraising events and private donations, Boredom Busters is able to provide the hospital’s Child Life Specialist Team with an operating budget to maintain a constant supply of "prizes" for the children they care for every day. Prizes include comforting toys, engaging games, and other wholesome, educational diversions. Boredom Busters stands firmly behind the BMC’s mission to provide “exceptional care, without exception” to each and every patient.

Boredom Busters was founded in honor of Sasha Burakow, the original Boredom Buster.
