About Spirit of Children
At the heart of Spirit Halloween is the Spirit of Children program which focuses on making hospitals less scary for kids and their families. Since its inception in 2006, Spirit of Children has brought smiles, laughter and a much needed escape to thousands of pediatric patients in 139 hospitals across the United States and Canada. One hundred percent of the money collected each year is given directly to the local Child Life Departments at partner hospitals, such as Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Spirit of Children’s goal is to raise more than $8.6 million this year, bringing its total contribution total to more than $45 million since the program’s inception. Spirit encourages customers to head to their local Spirit Halloween store or visit online to make a difference in a child’s life today.
