Are you interested in helping to create a happy moment for someone?

We love what we do, and believe in our mission.  We haven’t made it this far alone, and sincerely appreciate support that the community has provided.  If you are interested in helping us keep this adventure going, there are a number of ways you can be a partner with us.

Costume Donations:

Let’s face it, Halloween costumes are typically single-use items not sold at single-use prices.  Instead of throwing last year’s costume away, you would help our mission greatly by donating it instead.  Costume donations are the lifeblood of our Carnival project.  Below is information for those interested in making a costume donation:

We Welcome:
  • Any size costume
  • Incomplete costumes
  • Accessories
  • Makeup
Additional Materials We Need:
  • Ziploc bags (1 gallon size)
  • Dry shampoo
  • Heavy duty garbage bags
  • Tape (shipping)
  • Tape gun

* We cannot accept large, plastic accessories as they tend to break on shipping
