Capes with 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.

“Each one of you has your own superhero powers that you possess and should be proud of. When you wear this cape be proud of you are, brave, and happy always. Never underestimate your powers and continue to shine as we all know you can daily.
You are your own superhero so do great things!”

Past Projects

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 post. 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. The personalized capes and masks were funded by Heroes Unite Program, we included a book focused on empowerment along with the note from the 1st grade teacher (shown above). This program was especially important to me since it happened during COVID and kids were learning remotely. I initiated this project to minimize the potential of children falling farther behind students not enrolled in a Title 1 school.

Each organization requires a bit of a different arrangement, so I'm happy to talk with you about your specific needs. It is important that your organization has access to funding before coming to Creative Capes. Feel free to contact me to discuss your ideas.
