Halloween Spooktacular Banner Hop for Special Needs Kids, Day 2


Welcome to the annual Halloween Spooktacular Banner Hop for Special Needs Children!
Most of these precious children are dependent on ventilators and other technology to survive. Some have been born too early or with genetic diseases or birth injuries. Other children suffer injuries later in life that require constant care later, including brain injuries from trauma or loss of oxygen (from choking, suffocation or drowning) and spinal cord injuries.

I am delighted to taking part in this annual event which has been organised by Ellen, CardMonkey's paper jungle, most of the Halloween-themed banners  will be donated to hang in the room of a medically-fragile child at Pediatric Specialty Care in Pennsylvania.

These children and their families -- and PSC’s staff -- will be thrilled to receive the Halloween banners, to help brighten the season when their friends and siblings will be out trick-or-treating.” 

This Hop is two days (Saturday, September 1 and Sunday, September 2), and on each day you will see different banners. Be sure to visit on both days to see the truly inspirational work of these generous bloggers, and leave some love (comments) on as many sites as you can – because if you do, you can increase your chances to win some Spooktacular blog candy from these kind sponsors:

Ellen Jarvis said...

Wow, how fun this banner will be to see the neon effects of the new Letraset markers! Can you imagine if there was a "black light" to really make them glow? Super for a party!

Thank you again for participating in my banner hops benefiting the medically-fragile children at Pediatric Specialty Care. You are a dear!

Very fondly,
