Will Smith visits U of M Children's Hospital & Adopt A Room
VIDEO: Smith reacts to the Adopt-a-Room.
Superstar Will Smith visited the University of Minnesota Children's
Hospital, Fairview, December 12. In town for the Twin Cities premiere
of his new movie, Seven Pounds, Smith delighted patients
at the hospital and parents alike. He handed out gifts, posed for
pictures, and signed autographs. After his visit, one parent said,
"My son wasn't feeling very well this morning, and it was a struggle
to get him to the playroom, but now look at him — he's sitting
up at the computer, with a big grin on his face!" We are very
thankful for Smith's time and generosity!
