Halloween is only weeks away, and children are already thinking about their costumes, dreaming about bags of candy, and planning out their trick-or-treating routes. Fortunately, our friends at Spirit Halloween have all your costume needs covered, with a huge selection, and a special Spirit of Children program to boot.
Spirit of Children began in 2006, with the idea to host a simple Halloween party in hospitals for children unable to go out trick-or-treating. Since then, the program has taken off. After partnering with Child Life, a department meant to support fears surrounding children about to undergo treatment, Spirit of Children now reaches 130 hospitals across North America, and has raised millions in cash and merchandise. With that cash and merchandise, Spirit of Children funds hospital Halloween parties, as well as programs to make hospitals a more comfortable environment for kids.
