Fortunately, I’ve got some excellent news. Not only does Costume Studio offer a wide array of costumes (for kids, adults, and even pets) which typically ship the very next day, they donate 100% of the profits to Invisible Children, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids in war-torn Uganda. Every single product page shows you the exact donation amount, so you can make your selection based on both cuteness factor and how much good you’re doing.
It’s a win-win-win: You don’t have to pretend you can sew, the kid gets the perfect costume, and you’ve made a difference with your dollars. No tricks involved. -Mir
