SOMETIMES a bedtime story and a kiss on the forehead is all it takes to make everything better... and sometimes it's not.

Bank of Queensland Warwick has launched its Banking on Our Kids appeal, a fundraiser to help get sick kids back into their own beds.

Owner Gary Kelly said the appeal highlighted the importance of having children in a familiar and homely environment when they were unwell.

"Sick kids in hospital aren't just battling illnesses; they're also battling homesickness. Every kid wants to be at home getting tucked into their own bed and surrounded by their own toys," Mr Kelly said.

Health Minister Lawrence Springborg said looking after children's health was extremely important on the Southern Downs.

"The money goes into support and research to better children's health and the more we can raise the better," Mr Springborg said.

Money boxes will be at the BOQ branch from June 29.
