"We appreciate that during the busiest time of year for Halloween purchases, Costume Kingdom has selected us as a partner charity," said Meg Byrtek, COO, Children's Cancer Association. "The money we receive will help us deliver the power of joy -- hope, comfort and happiness -- to children and families when their lives have been turned upside down."

In the United States in 2007, approximately 10,400 children under the age of 15 were diagnosed with cancer. CCA offers award-winning programs and resources to seriously ill children (from birth to 18), their families and the medical professionals who care for them. CCA receives no federal or state funds, which makes donations like Costume Kingdom's vital in the success of their programs.

With unbeatable prices and customer service that's second-to-none, Costume Kingdom offers thousands of choices in newborn to adult sizes, from classic favorites like Spiderman, Disney Princesses and Star Wars characters, to pop-culture icons like LMFAO DJ Redfoo, Angry Birds and Lady Gaga.
