Kids Make Superhero Capes For Homeless Children So They Feel Strong!
Homeless kids that live in shelters can often feel afraid or alone. Elementary school kids are helping change that! Students from PS 173 in Queens, New York, who are members of the GenerationOn Kids Care Club, made capes for homeless kids in shelters! Just last month they made 24 capes, which were donated to children at the Detroit Rescue Mission in Michigan.
This project is part of a bigger initiative called Capes For Kids. Terry Grahl, whose nonprofit Enchanted Makeovers runs Capes for Kids, told The Huffington Post that there’s so much more to the accessories than meets the eye — it’s all about inspiring confidence. “Children ... get to tap into their inner-strength while they’re creating this and also know that they’re empowering another child,” she said.
