This is a call for dance costumes and dance wear (toddler, child, through to teen size). New or used but in decent condition. Accessories such as hats and vests will also be welcome for all the boys.

The children of 57357 Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt have performances and parties for them everyday. But they have never taken to the stage themselves, never been applauded. We plan to change that by putting on a performance this winter with an array of costumes sent from the States. We’re going for the eclectic look and the patients could keep them after the show. Many of the kids are coming from poorer backgrounds, Syria/Sudan, and are caught in an increasingly ideologically divided country. Let’s help them dance.

Please comment below what items you are sending so that we can keep an inventory.

***Please note that with the instability in Egypt, we would like to stay away from sending military or overly-patriotic American themed costumes at this time.

With a dancing heart, sending a big SHUKRAN (thank you).
