Giveaway from Everybody's Hero!!! (this giveaway is now closed)

I have an exciting giveaway for anyone that has a little hero in their life whether it be a girl or a boy. I have actually waited several weeks to do this giveaway because I wanted to make sure everyone would get in on this and not miss out because of summer business.

When I first started talking to Everybody's Hero she ask me what color cape I wanted. I told her I was pretty easy going and I have girls and a boy so it really didn't matter. I was sooooo surprised when I opened the package and found a BEAUTIFUL reversible cape. On one side of the cape it is for my girls and the other side for my boy.

All I had to do was velcro this on them and they instantly turned into super hero's.

Let's learn more about Everybody's Hero:

When did you open your Etsy shop? September 2009

Can you tell me about the charity you support? The Children's Tumor Foundation is a foundation dedicated to finding a cure for Neurofibromatosis (NF) and to improving the the health and well being of individuals and families affected by NF. Since my youngest son has been diagnosed with NF1, my family is directly impacted by this foundation.

How did you start making capes? When my husband and I had our last child, we decided I should stop teaching for a few years and stay home with the children. I wanted to still bring in a little bit of extra income and give back to the charity that could potentially provide help for our child so I decided to try my hand at sewing. My heart goes out to every child going through any type of medical treatment and how much strength they have from it all. They are all little heroes in my mind. Thus, was born the name "Everybody's Hero™."

How can they be customized? Each customer choosing their colors, emblems and initials. If there is a color or emblem that is not listed but someone is interested in, most of the time I can work with a customer to make what they are envisioning ;)
