Wear the Cape recently held its annual holiday fundraiser benefiting the kidkind foundation. Over 100 attendees, including many young volunteers, came out to support the organization’s mission of restoring the power of kindness and heroic character. Guests brought much-needed supplies for American troops overseas, toys for underprivileged children, and delicious treats for a cookie swap. “Madame Clare” entertained adults and children with positive, encouraging fortunes of their heroic deeds. Colleen Grundfest of Warren, a beloved teacher who is committed to building good character in kids, donned a costume to play the part. Wear the Cape also introduced its new merchandise, complete with “hero tags” that coach kids on making the right choices and being BETTER THAN THAT™. Thanks to generous donations, in 2016 the kidkind foundation will be bringing to elementary schools a fun and inspiring, hour-long assembly with a new, positive approach to preventing and stopping bullying, publishing a children’s book that beautifully illustrates that it’s better to be a hero than a bully, and putting money toward scholarships for deserving local teens who embody Wear the Cape’s mission. For more information on the assembly and book, please email Wear the Cape Founder Leigh Ann Errico at firstname.lastname@example.org.
