Purplena Sprinkles Get Well Fairy Dust Far and Wide at Radio Lollipop Gold Coast

Published June 26, 2012 by Face Painting Brisbane

Purplena the Face Painting Fairy made a special visit to brighten up the Paediatric Ward at Radio Lollipop Gold Coast Hospital.

This was her second visit to the kids at Radio Lollipop and was a special one at that. Purplena knows the power of art and a positive attitude can have and tries to create a joyful atmosphere everywhere she goes. In the studio Purplena painted batman, flowers, and butterflies on faces, hands and arms. She also took a fairy flight around the ward to see the bedridden children to paint some beauty on them. Little Tegan in the photograph was so excited to have her face painted and then be sprinkled with some magic ‘get well fairy dust’.

“I may not be able to change the child’s circumstance,” she explains, “but I know I can give them a positive experience, some joy, happiness and a good memory, despite their circumstances.” That is truly what Purplena does with her beautiful, kind nature with the children and she treats every child as an individual and makes them feel special. Purplena also paints at Dreamworld, birthday parties, other hospitals and for other organisations.

We’d love to thank Purplena and Sam of The Face Painting Company for helping us organise the very special visit and we hope to have Purplena back to spread some more of that ‘get well fairy dust’ around soon.

Hi-5’s all round as Lauren and Purplena visit Radio Lollipop Gold Coast Hospital

Published May 24, 2011 by Face Painting Brisbane

Lauren from popular children’s group Hi-5 bounded through the archway of balloons of the Radio Lollipop Studio to be greeted by many smiling faces on Monday 16 May 2011. The children completed Hi-5 crafts, played games and Lauren spent time chatting with each child.

Purplena the Face Painting Fairy from Dreamworld brightened up the ward by painting beautiful designs on many faces. Patients, siblings, Radio Lollipop Volunteers and even some of the nurses! There were butterflies, flowers, spidermen, Ben 10 characters and many other amazing designs.

Later Lauren and Purplena went for a walk around the wards to visit the children who were unable to make it down to the studio. Lauren chatted to the children and their families and autographed Hi-5 gear for them. Purplena painted the children’s faces and sprinkled special ‘get well fairy dust’ to help them feel much better. Every child was left smiling from ear to ear after their special visit from Lauren and Purplena.

A big thank you to Lauren for taking time out of your busy Hi-5 schedule to come and spend time with the children at Gold Coast Hospital and put so many smiles on faces. We hope you’ll come back and visit us again soon.

Thank you also to Purplena for colouring the children in the ward with your beautiful artwork. We hope you’ll come and sprinkle some more of that special ‘get well fairy dust’ again soon.
