Spirit of Children is a program (brought to you by Spirit of Halloween) that brings fun and funding to hospitals at Halloween and all year long. The charity focuses on hospitals that pays more attention to kids because they want to help to make hospital stays less scary for kids and their families.

"...This past year I will never forget one of our older patients got to pick a costume and he was so excited he told me because now his mom doesn't have to use her work check to buy him a costume and it would help her out! He was so worried about how his mom was going to find money for a costume and now she didn't have to worry... We are also going to use the money for weekly community re-entry outings. We will use the money to treat the kids to baseball games, cooking classes, go out to dinner, mall trips etc..."

I also want to mention a local charity that involves a friend's son. Casen was diagnosed with Batten Disease and his family strives to get more information about the disease to the public. Awareness is the first step towards reaching a cure.
