-The Dekoposh mascots, Deko and Posh, along with a number of volunteers will be visiting the children at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA and their families on April 27, 2009 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm to do Arts & Crafts. Deko and Posh will share in a day of fun with the children along with Celebrities—Kristina Apgar from the CW hit-show Privileged, Tracy Hutson from ABC Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Aria Wallace from Roxy Hunter and iCarly, Austin Anderson singer and dancer with plays on Radio Disney, Daechelle is a recording artist, her song “Fearless” is featured on the Bratz Movie and Bratz CD, and Simon Curtis from the new Nickelodeon original TV movie, Spectacular. In addition to doing Arts & Crafts with the children, we will be gifting them products donated by many different com-panies that were compelled to participate in this program once they heard about the event.
This program is an illustration of what we can accomplish together if we col-laborate towards a shared goal or vision. The mission of dekoposh inc., is to empower V.I.T.s (very important tweens and teens) to make positive changes today for a better tomorrow by volunteering, giving back, becom-ing leaders, and teaching others to do the same.
“We are very excited about doing this program with Mattel Children’s Hospi-tal UCLA. We look forward to making this program a tremendous success”, said Dina Thomas-Virrueta—President and Founder of dekoposh Inc., “This program exemplifies the spirit that we foster at dekoposh Inc., and we are grateful for the new relationships we have formed as a result of this pro-gram”…added Dina .
We expect to visit a total of 68 kids and share a memorable day with them. We have several Arts & Crafts for them to do including a build a purse kit, a doll house and fire station made by reusing different containers and boxes. The key take away with the Arts & Crafts is that they are created from re-cyclables. This was done on purpose to encourage kids to think green and explore opportunities to recycle in their own ways.
