Tonight Monday, Dec.23, a special version of the 'Iowa Wave' will happen outside of the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital.

Anyone interested in participating will be meeting up outside of the hospital in Iowa City next Monday, Dec. 23rd to do something special for kids who aren't spending their holiday at home this year.

Organizers want to get as many people as possible to grab a flashlight (or your phone light) and head over to the sidewalk outside of Kinnick at 6:30 p.m. At 6:40 p.m., participants will be asked to turn on their flashlights and wave them at the children's hospital for about five minutes.

Organizers of the special wave is quickly gaining popularity on Facebook. Everyone should bring, "a smile, a flashlight, a giving heart, and the spirit of the holidays" on Monday night. You can get more updates on the event by following it on Facebook HERdunn E.
