At some point Saturday afternoon someone posted this photo on Reddit.

Within 24 hours the fourth floor of the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles was having a huge pizza party with pizzas sent in by reddit users.

So many pizzas were being delivered that the hospital put a post on its website’s blog that “pizzas were no longer needed”.

The little girl who originally started this ball rolling by making this sign on her window is named Hazel. Her mom posted a thank you comment on the original thread that’s since been upvoted to the top comment.

Say what you will about reddit, when they get a good cause in their sites and get some momentum built they can do some seriously great things.
