Here is a very cool item you all should read. Thanks Pat!
Greetings, everyone --
Pennypickle's Workshop, the Temecula Children's Museum, is going to be a drop-off point for people donating Halloween costumes to "The Cancer Kids", who are sponsored by a non-profit organization called Discovery Arts, founded by entertainment industry professionals who try to use the healing power of the arts to comfort children who have cancer and life threatening illnesses.
These costumes are given to each child who enters one of six hospitals in the Southern California area to receive treatment. They don't wear them only on Halloween. The children become very attached to their costumes and they are a great source of fantasy for them when their lives are disrupted by the unthinkable.
Here is a quote from Discovery Arts: "If any of you happen to be out 'Costume Shopping' for Halloween... keep us in mind. We give our children a brand new costume each and every time they are in the hospital. They LOVE them... they sleep in them, they do shows in them and we even had one of our patients arrive in an ambulance at the hospital dressed in her Cinderella costume!! The girls love to be pretty princesses and the boys love to be strong superheroes... Spread the word if you can. Thank you!!!"
So I'm asking you to consider donating a costume (any child's size) and bring it to Pennypickle's Workshop BEFORE Oct. 27. You will be making a little one very happy. Also, please forward this email to your warm hearted friends! If you have any questions, you can contact me at this email address.
Thank you for your generosity,
President, Friends of the Temecula Children's Museum
