Volunteer on the Arts Walk

Help us decorate children’s costumes and trunks for our interactive performances in hospitals and care facilities.

As we reflect back on 2017, the staff of Only Make Believe DC would like to thank all of our volunteers and supporters who have made this our most successful year to date! Join us for more volunteer events posted soon, and take a look at your impact below. We could not do this without you!

  • We’ve facilitated 14 different Corporate Costume Collectives with over 300 employees creating over 260 hats
  • We’ve hosted 21 volunteer events at our office with over 270 individual volunteers creating 334 costume give-aways
  • We’ve designed, painted, and primed 3 brand new costume trunks to add to our interactive performances 
  • We’ve facilitated 8 different satellite volunteer opportunities that produced dozens of capes, tunics, hats, and necklaces

Thanks to your help, we’ve reached a total of 1,580 volunteer hours!  We can not thank you enough for helping us share joy, hope, and laughter to the children who need it most. See you in 2018!
