A large portion of a nonprofit is time consuming just to secure funding. It's a lot of work! When you have a project which needs support, you begin reaching out for funding to make it come to life. Well, we want to THANK the Nashville Predators Foundation for their funding on our Superhero Activity Boxes which we donate to Children's Hospitals. If I haven't reached out for funds, feel free to reach out to me and together we WILL make the world better for our children. Here in our organization, Characters of Character, we have no paid staff, our time is your time as we create, network, design, write, converse, share, fulfill these projects because Joni uses her Ph.d., her Passion, her Heart and her Determination to make a difference in the life of a child. YOU can become a part of these works by sponsoring, donating, sharing our projects with others or in-kind support certainly makes an impact. These Superhero Activity Boxes are donated each quarter to various Children's Hospitals and you must find value in this project as you continue to read this article! You can rest assured, that your donation goes to the children through our boxes bringing so much joy to the girls and the boys staying in the hospital. Can't think of any child who wants to be there, let's give them some activities to engage in and to empower them to become SUPER in their thoughts and their actions.
Engaging children in creative character-building efforts goes long way for young patients

As part of one of this years projects, Characters of Character raised funds to be able to donate to Children’s Hospitals across America. This organization has chosen the state of Tennessee as they are relocating the nonprofit to Tennessee this year, and now, with the generosity of the Nashville Predators, Characters of Character is now able to donate at the least 250 Superhero Activity Boxes to the above Children’s Hospitals in Tennessee. The first quarter they donated 60 boxes through a small fundraiser hosted by Joni Downey, the creator of the organization, and this second quarter is off to a fabulous start!

What is included in a Superhero Box?
What will this box provide for a child?
Without the Sponsors and Donations from people like you or Corporations such as the Nashville Predators, our donations would not be able to be gifted to the Children’s Hospitals. Each quarter we will donate to the Children’s Hospital and the second quarter is off to a beautiful beginning with 250 boxes. You can help make a difference in the life of a child by becoming a Sponsor, by donating, by sharing our project and bringing awareness to others.
Let’s make the world better together!

While we reside in Illinois, we are moving to Tennessee this summer. Our goal is to provide a space for children to come to and engage in character building activities through discussions, art, literacy and drama. These activities and lessons will build their character, share it in their family unit, their classroom, the community and friendships. We will welcome in other youth organizations, schools, clubs, families, clubs and churches to introduce these messages to help them empower their community. What a wonderful world this would be! Especially today, our children would benefit from being introduced to these characters, understand the message and model these traits.
Questions, want to talk, please reach out, I'm here! Joni
