Capes 4 Kids is an initiative from Union (in partnership with Urban Spool) that transforms children fighting chronic illnesses into superheroes with the power of a cape and encouraging words. Our plan is simple.
1) One Saturday a month, we transform Union into a cape-making factory where we churn out as many kid-sized capes as we can.
2) We have a team of people who dress up like superheroes and, along with some non-uniformed sidekicks, deliver the capes to kids in area hospitals.
3) High-fives all around.
You can help make a difference in our quest by donating funds or fabric (100% cotton, 1 yard or larger, single color or kid-friendly prints). You can also help make capes (no sewing / crafting experience necessary, but it doesn’t hurt) and/or deliver capes to kids. Click Here for volunteer information.
In addition to generous donations of fabric from individuals and organizations like Urban Spool, C4K raised roughly $3,000 in a kickstarter campaign. We are so grateful to all of our donors. Check out this video that helped inspire their donations.
