In my house our favorite holiday is Halloween.  And every year we can’t wait to see where Spirit Halloween stores are going to pop up. We love looking through all the cool products and costumes. Sunday me an my daughter went to a Spirit Halloween store in Austin to see what is new!

My daughter got a really cool pair of skull earrings that she adores.

I got a cool little Nightmare Before Christmas bag, you think any one is going to notice it is a trick-or-treat bag?

I got a plastic skull that changes colors for my husbands desk, a Nightmare Before Christmas Key Chain and a bottle of black nail polish.

When we were checking out the sales associate told us about the Spirit of Children program and asked us if we wanted to donate. My daughter was more than happy to give her last dollar away to help the children in the hospital. Our Austin area stores are donating to the Dell Children’s Medical Center.

About the Spirit of Children program

Spirit of Children is a program that brings fun and funding to hospitals at Halloween and all year long. We focus on hospitals that focus on kids because they need help to make hospital stays less scary for kids and their families. We started six years ago with eleven hospitals in our own backyard and the belief that a great holiday should do great good. And it worked. We’ve raised more than $7 million in cash and merchandise donations since then and have worked with over 120 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada during the 2011 season. Every dollar donated goes directly to the hospitals. Local donations stay local. Click here for more information about our program.
