Spirit of Children is a program that brings fun and funding to hospitals at Halloween and all year long. We focus on hospitals that focus on kids because they need help to make hospital stays less scary for kids and their families. We started five years ago with eleven hospitals in our own backyard and the belief that a great holiday should do great good. And it worked. We've raised more than $7 million in cash and merchandise donations since then and have worked with over 120 children's hospitals across the United States and Canada during the 2011 season. Every dollar donated goes directly to the hospitals. Local donations stay local. Visit www.SpiritHalloween.com/SpiritOfChildren to learn more!
