Why Donations Are Important Now
Why donations are more important than ever with Covid-19
Giving patients something to distract them from their hospital visit has always been important. No one wants to sit in a hospital room and have nothing to do except focus on the fact that they are in a hospital room. When the pandemic struck, even more restrictions were put on what was and wasn't allowed in hospitals. We recently found out that due to the pandemic sharing of toys is no longer allowed in most hospitals, common areas are not being utilized which means that children are confined to their rooms or limited to where they are able to visit, and many hospitals are no longer accepting certain toys such as stuffed animals due to not being able to clean them properly.
This is all the more reason that we are increasing our efforts to focus on donating our Superhero Character Building Kits to the children's hospitals and wards in Tennessee. After speaking with a few representatives from different hospitals we learned that Winter is a busy time of the year for the hospitals and we'd like to begin sending out these donations sooner rather than later. Our activity kits are easy to store, include everything the patient needs to complete the activities, and are for a single person to use. There is no exchanging of activities (though we hope they display their beautiful artwork for others to appreciate!) and each child gets their very own kit to keep in their room.
We would also like to emphasize that behind the scenes we are taking extra precautions to prevent exposure. Joni, founder of Characters of Character NFP, Inc., is the only person preparing and packing the activity kits.

Fun Character Agents Lanyard
What Is Included In Each Sturdy and Colorful Box
Each box is colorful and sturdy and includes a Superhero Activity Book, crayons, watercolor paints, paint brush, a canvas to paint that says, I AM SUPER, an easel to display the art work, a superhero sticker, a superhero mask (in plastic) a black and white poster to color or paint of all the characters, a character (agent) lanyard to wear, plus, a handwritten letter from one of the Characters of Character! Quite a bit of fun, engaging and empowering materials to utilize while in the hospital. And finally, put together with a whole lot of love.
What Are Superhero Character Building Kits?
Characters of Character NFP, Inc. focuses on nine different character traits that we believe are essential for a child to develop and improve on at an early age. These nine traits are; behavior, perseverance, friendship, healthy habits, manners, respect, responsibility, self-esteem, and kindness.
Our Superhero Themed Character Building Activity Kits not only encourage children be better citizens, but they also incorporate a positive and healthy way for children to express themselves through art. Including everything needed, from watercolor paints to their very own felt superhero mask, children are able to have a positive distraction and engaging activities to keep their minds busy, all while internalizing positive character attributes.
