Characters of Character is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in McHenry, Illinois, however, we share our resources nationally. We are trying to do our part in this pandemic by offering FREE RESOURCES for families and children to engage in character building activities. Check out our Character Corner and be sure to share your pictures and puppets with us, too!
We are also continuing our 2020 Projects to donate our Superhero Activity Boxes to children in the hospitals. During this difficult time, life still goes on and to be able to bring joy to girls and boys through this and otherwise, is a heartwarming experience. Would you like to support our project? Learn more here and please share us with others. Corporations and Businesses are welcome to sponsor these activity boxes, simply contact Joni Together we will make the world better.
Last year we brought our character Self-Esteem Elephant to Shriner's in Chicago and shared self-esteem building activities and the message of "I Like ME" with the families and children. We also brought our character Warm-Hearted Walrus to Huntley Hospital to donate our Kindness Activities to the children. We've donated our resources to Ann and Robert Lurie's Hospital and Loyola. What Characters of Character found was a need for resources like this for the children to engage in and the appreciation of them was such a pleasant experience, too! Your donation helps us to continue to donate to these hospitals and others. Please consider the joy they bring to the children, families and the staff. You can donate for one or as many as you would like. Our orders must be 500 in order to lower the cost to $20.00 per box. So doable!
Each Superhero Activity Box is filled with wonderful activities for the children to work on while they are healing in the hospital. They will be engaged and internalize the meaning of these characters through art and literacy. A Superhero Activity Book is included, plus an easel to display their I AM SUPER canvas they paint with the watercolors provided. A character lanyard (agent badge) is included, crayons, superhero mask, superhero stickers, paintbrush, black and white poster to color or paint, a full color Super Hero Poster and a handwritten letter from one of the Characters of Character. Pretty packed with spectacular activities, don't you think?!
THE BOX IS SO INVITING, COLORFUL, STURDY AND FUN!
If you have any questions, please contact me and together we will make the world better!
