Helping children smile, one painting at a time.
The goal of the #2018Smiles Campaign is to donate 2018 Scarf Making Kits. 100% of every donation goes toward Scarf Making Kits and head scarves for children suffering from Cancer and Alopecia. We donate our Scarf Making Kits to Children's Hospitals throughout the US.
To help accomplish Rosie's mission to "make the bald kids smile", Coming Up Rosies donates Scarf Making Kits to Children's Hospitals around the world. With your donation, we are able to set up Scarf Making Programs in collaboration with the hospital's Child Life teams. Child Life Specialists introduce the activity to the children and help them create their very own masterpiece. The kits are portable and can be used in the hospital playroom, at a child's bedside or even at home.
The Scarf Making Kit includes a Rosie designed head scarf to wear right away, a 9x11 canvas, brushes, paints, and a voucher to have a custom printed head scarf, head band or neck scarf created from the child's painting. Upon completion of the canvas, the caregiver uploads a digital picture of the image to www.cominguprosies.com. The child keeps their canvas as a souvenir to display with pride, as they wait for their matching scarf to arrive in the mail. With each kit, a child can rock one of Rosie's head scarves and also create one of their own.
