Spirit Halloween raises a record $10 million

Spirit Halloween has raised a record $10 million for it’s Spirit of Children charity as part of its aim to make hospitals ‘less scary’ for children.

Spirit Halloween, the largest Halloween retailer in North America, has met its fundraising goal for 2019, raising a record $10 million to create smiles during hospital visits this year.

Since 2007, Spirit of Children has raised more than $55 million for Child Life departments at more than 140 pediatric hospitals in North America. The organisation hosted nearly 100 Halloween parties in US hospitals this October so the children did not have to miss out on the fun.

“We’re honoured Spirit of Children continues to provide magic for children in hospitals through fun and play,” said Steven Silverstein, president and ceo of Spirit Halloween.

“For the last twelve years, it’s been all about helping kids in hospitals. The Spirit of Children mission is to support the Child Life departments in partner hospitals with funding raised mostly from the generosity of our customers. It starts with the Halloween parties we host in hospitals, while the funding also supports key Child Life initiatives year round.”

Funds for Spirit of Children are raised via donations from customers at more than 1,360 Spirit Halloween stores and, in addition to contributions from vendors and business partners. 100% of funds raised by Spirit of Children stay local and are donated to each hospital’s Child Life department.
