I will never forget when my best friend told me her little boy had cancer...I still feel totally surreal even writing those words...
I felt completely helpless but wanted to do something - I needed to find a way send all the love & strength I felt to him. So, I asked Happy Soul Project friends if anyone was willing to make and donate a super-I'm-going-to-kick-cancer
And because of the overwhelming response, just like that Happy Soul Project started a new initiative to give out capes to kids battling cancer...And what started out as a few kids, turned into hundreds - We have now given out more than 400+ Kick-it-Capes around the world.
We also found that it's not just kids with cancer that benefit from one of our capes - So we've been giving them to siblings who are going through their own struggles having a brother or sister sick, children facing any type of serious illness or vast difference that needs an extra dose of super-hero strength.
So, because the need is so great, we constantly have children on a waiting list, we desperately need your help...
You can donate capes, fabric, moula, start a sewing bee, get friends or schools on board - Anything to help get a cape in our hands & wrapped awesomely around a kid who needs it. And to donate & buy a child, whether you know them or not, a cape click HERE. And for those that want to make and send capes see our FAQ below and thank you for helping make someone else's day a wee bit brighter.
Who can make them?
Ummm, absolutely anyone...The more the better - More people involved, more capes going out, more smiles on kids faces.
Where do I sent them?
Please mail them to:
Happy Soul Project

What colour, size, pattern do I use?
I want our capes, like Happy Soul Project to reflect and celebrate differences...So just like every kid is different, so than should our capes...There is no set pattern - This is your chance to get creative. Make a cape that you love and know that someone receiving it will love it too.
I can't sew but want to help?
Glad you asked because help is what I need...Here's some ideas:
- Donate moula - just a wee bit...It would help with shipping cost and other items we add to care-packages for some kids who receive our capes. You can do that HERE
- Organize an event, party, or something in which people must donate a cape to attend.
- Rally a local sewing club, school class or all the crafty people you know to get involved.
- Umm did I say send some moula? Ya that would be cool and help to buy some of these kiddos a little something extra to send with their capes.
Can I nominate a kid to receive a cape?
YES YES YES...We want to help as many kids as we can and the more personal the better. To nominate a kiddo either:
- Email me at email@example.com and in the subject line state it's a nomination. Make sure to give me the child's name and where the capes should be sent to.
- Leave a comment here on the blog
When do you need the capes by?
This will be an ongoing initiative for Happy Soul Project...Whatever capes we receive I promise I will find a home around some little kiddo's neck who needs them...So send them now, send them later, send them whenever you want and can.
What else can I do?
You can share some of these pictures to help spread the news about what we are doing...More and more I am seeing the power behind social media and you never know who can help and who sees what. So share, share, share and hope that whomever sees this finds a way to help.
Okay sweet friends, I want to absolute thank you with everything I got for having kind and generous hearts and helping to add a bit of happiness to the planet...
