Capes for a Cause
I started Creative Capes with the mission to help kids of all ages engage in active play, stimulate their imaginations, and realize their inner strengths. With that in mind, I'm always looking for the opportunity to connect with organizations (schools, hospitals, community groups, etc.) that might be able to give capes to children who are fighting their own personal battles.
For example: I partnered with a Pre-K teacher in Howard County to create an empowerment theme day for her Title 1 students using Creative Capes personalized capes and masks, story time, dance and drawing activities. (You can read about it and see photos on my blog: .) When the kids put on their capes for the first time, they transformed with feelings of pride, joy, self esteem, happiness, and self confidence.
I did a similar program with a Baltimore City Title 1 school to assist 100 students that were kindergarteners or first graders. With the capes and masks funded by Heroes Unite Program, we included a book focused on empowerment along with this note:
