Cheap and Cheerful Charity: Halloween Costumes for the Annika Kelly Strain Foundation

My family has been blessed to get to know the Strain family. You can read about them and their Foundation here. In honor of Annika, the Strain family coordinates a Halloween costume closet for young cancer patients at UCSF. Imagine Halloween in the hospital made spectacular with a rack of costumes to choose from and special treats, too.

If you would like to donate a new costume, in any size from infant to teen, mail it to the address below before October 15.

AKS Foundation
130 Funston Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94118

I get about 50 hits on my blog each day. If everyone who reads this donates just one costume, think about the difference we can make for kids who really deserve a fun Halloween. Spread some love. Share your wealth. It will bring a smile to a kid and his or her parents. And that is certainly priceless.


  1. Check is in the mail- what a great cause!

  2. JGF - mind if I post this on FB? I am going to send a couple of barely worn costumes! What a great cause!

  3. Please do post on Facebook! The costumes do need to be new, due to the sensitive health of the recipients, but any size is welcome!
