Capes for Kindness

Did you know September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month?!

In honor of this super special group of kiddos, I’m shining a spotlight on Capes for Kindness! These volunteers dress up as princesses & super heroes and visit children in  hospitals and attend local nonprofit events! I recently met a member of their Board when he was volunteering as a Star Wars character with kids climbing all over him. I learned all about their mission – bringing magic to pediatric patients through fairytale characters – and knew I wanted to help.

For this “Giving Back Project“, I collected super fun princess & super hero toys for Capes for Kindness to gift to all these special kiddos. When the magical volunteers make an appearance, they definitely don’t come empty handed – they love gifting books, dolls an toys wherever they go!

BECAUSE OF YOU, together we donated over 200 toys! Thank you for your overwhelming kindness and generosity! I’m so proud to be a part of this amazing community – you are CHANGING THE WORLD!

I also joined Capes for Kindness as a volunteer and attended my first event as Princess Anna and had THE BEST TIME!

Like I always say, in addition to seeing the world, I want to help save it too! So whether you know a family that has been affected by a childhood illness or you have a sot spot for these little warriors, this was a super special thing we could do to honor them. Thank you so much for helping make a difference during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!
