We see daily the difference that giving can make and the wonderful joy that accepting a gift or an act of love brings to a recipient. One of our favorite ways to give is to brighten the lives of children who are seriously ill and facing long hospital stays. For a child who wants to play, a hospital can be a difficult place to spend their time, filled with bed rest, lots of lonely hours, and of course, less opportunities to feel like their peers.
Our most recent endeavor is to donate dress up items to the Children’s Hospital in Boston. We believe every child should have an opportunity to imagine great things and to experience the joy of play- so Operation Dress Up was born! Cathy’s Creations recently ordered several tutus from Emmy’s Heart Oklahoma for “Sofia’s Angels” at the Susan G. Komen walk and was inspired to order ten multicolored tutus to donate to the hospital.
Team Sofia's Angels at the SGK Boston walk 2013, sporting their awesome tutus that were handcrafted by Emmy's Heart Oklahoma.

But we want to do more, and we’re looking for your help! We’d like to provide ten awesome capes so these kids can feel like the superheroes that they are. We can provide the material BUT- we can’t sew… So, if you or someone you know would be willing to dedicate some time and energy to help, please let us know! If you’d like to contribute and help pay for the cost of materials, please PayPal us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any and all donations are helpful! Please put Children’s Hospital in the subject line, and send your donation as a gift to prevent associated fees.
Have a wonderful day!
