One day, I was looking at clothing and costumes online when it hit me; I could use it to make OTHER PEOPLE happy, too! I love making people smile, and laughter is a pretty great healer, so I thought about who else would enjoy a silly woman in a Charmander Onse
The smiles and laughs I hope so tremendously to bring could brighten some difficult days, and my expansion idea involves a goofy looking band of productively-intentioned, likeminded misfits, traveling Cleveland hospitals, or even across America(!!) to cheer up sick kids.
As someone quite familiar with the inside of a hospital room, I promise, they need more color, love, giggles, joy, and hope!
Also, I intend to offer gentle emotional support for families, because they can never have too much! My goal is fairly small, as I aim to purchase one costume ($69.50) and the finest books of childhood, such as the Pokey Little Puppy and other Penguin Classics from many of our childhood's.
I will also gladly accept any books people feel kids should know about. The way they light up when a story is told, such they connect with it, is absolutely magical.

One extra day, one hour spent not crying, one fear replaced with a laugh...that is my goal.
To help little girls and boys embrace the good times left. The more distracted a person is, the less painful pain is.
Let's get those bodies better, and if we can't, let's at least have a great time!
