About Spirit of Children
At the heart of Spirit Halloween is Spirit of Children. Established in 2006, Spirit of Children raises money in-store and online to support the child life departments at hospitals across the United States and Canada.
100 percent of every dollar collected is donated to Spirit of Children’s partner hospitals to purchase educational and entertainment items such as laptop computers, flat screen TV’s, distraction toys and toys designed specifically for children with physical challenges, as well as art, music and pet therapy programs.
