We make and personalize superhero capes for kids with disabilities, kids with life threatening illnesses and kids who just need to feel empowered. We hope our capes give these deserving kids an extra boost of strength and courage and make them feel like the superheroes they truly are!
Comfort for Capes
Help provide comfort and capes to children spending the holidays in the hospital by adopting a teddy bear from Community Bank of the Bay. These special bears have been donated by students from Valley Parent Preschool and Greenbrook Elementary School and can be adopted by making a donation to Capes4Heroes today. The adopted bears will be delivered along with handmade superhero capes to Oakland Kaiser and UCSF the week before Christmas and distributed by nurses and doctors to children battling a life threatening illness or disability. A donation of $30 will provide comfort and courage and make one child a hero this holiday season. Follow the link below to make your donation and sponsor a child today.

Capes4Heroes®, formerly Kiss The Toad Creations®, was created four years ago when Barbara Casados's autistic son Maddox refused to wear anything but a superhero cape. So, Barbara bought a sewing machine, taught herself how to sew and made lots of different capes for Maddox. Other parents at Maddox's special needs school saw the impact the superhero capes had on him and asked Barbara to make capes for their kids.
One thing led to another and soon Barbara and her team of amazing seamstresses were making superhero capes for children all over the country. Capes4Heroes®, was officially born!
