A Force for Karen Blood Drive

This fall, the Minnesota Force lost one of our beloved members, Karen Madsen, to an 18-year battle with blood cancer. In her honor, we started a group called A Force for Karen. Our first event was a blood drive on November 17th. She relied on blood transfusions, and often spoke to the importance of donating blood. Our goal was 22 pints, and we surpassed our goal!

Halloween Costume Giveaway

Doing what we do best – making people happy! Volunteers: Jolyn Augesen, Anna Sawyer, Rick Rietow, Christa Ludwig, Kaity Heart, and Kris Heding.

Costumers for a Cause purchased a bunch of Halloween costumes after Halloween last year (probably close to 200 of them). We went to Children’s Hospital on October 24th to give away costumes to kids in the hospital and their families, and in a little over an hour, we donated 70 costumes! The next day, Costumers for a Cause went to Hallie Q. Brown Community Center and gave away even more costumes there. We made so many kids happy!
