Big Animals for Little Kids has
a unique dual mission:
- Big Animal volunteers bring joy and laughter to children facing
health, emotional or socioeconomic challenges. More than 50 annual
hospital and family shelter visits and appearances at charitable
events throughout San Diego County bring happiness to children and
emotional support to their families.
- Teens are attracted to wearing Big Animal costumes to entertain
younger children because it is fun. When they do so, they learn
exceptional life skills, self-responcibility, the joy of giving,
and the satisfaction of helping someone less fortunate than themselves.
