We are the only nonprofit organization that donates our creative Super Hero outfits and Hero Club 60-page educational, bilingual story/activity books and crayons to each child admitted into hospitals year-round. We also include peel-off stickers for the kids to decorate their hats, capes, and masks. The hospitalized children are given decorated holiday-themed Happy Hat for 6 holidays throughout the year. These creative Happy Hats, made by volunteers in Torrance California, uplift the entire family and staff when they see the children smile.
