It's a Spooktacular time of year! Fall is here and children are getting excited for Halloween. Please consider Donating to our Annual Costume Drive.
Just imagine a really sick child and seeing their face light up when we present them with their very own costume, that they get to keep. We've seen miracle smiles, again and again, as a really sick child transforms themselves and transcends their circumstances. This is very important during treatment and it makes a big difference for children who are in the hospital.
We have found that children who are in the hospital really enjoy their costumes, they are a perfect way for them to rise above their illness to become a Pretty Pretty Princess or their favorite Superhero.
We are in need of costumes all year long, please consider supporting us by becoming a Costume Designer Partner. Your Partnership will provide 1,000 costumes for children in our participating hospitals. Due to health concerns we can only accept new costumes.
Our most requested costumes are Princesses for girls and Superhero's for boys.
To donate new costumes for our Annual Costume Drive
buy one and send it to us,
send us a gift card, or make a donation!

Our spokesperson, Cathy Rigby, works tirelessly at raising awareness for our mission, which is an ongoing problem with ongoing needs. We are asking everyone to donate a 'Grateful Dollar’ in honor of every healthy child you know to help a sick child in the hospital.
Your generous Monthly Partnership will help a child in need of joy and laughter. Your support of just $15, or more, a month will help bring Arts Adventures to one child with cancer, serious blood disorder or life threatening illness. This is an ongoing service for an ongoing need. Your monthly support keeps us going, so we can continue to bring much needed relief to these special children who are facing the greatest fear of all.
Give back and help while doing everyday things like shopping and dining.
It's easy! And doesn't cost you extra money.
