​Critter Count


407 Completed Critters and 379 Critter Creation Kits
for kids fighting cancer

Cancer Kickin' Critters is a nonprofit created by a kid to bring comfort to children in the hospital fighting cancer. We hand-make stuffed toys and create kits for patients to create their own stuffed animals. These Critters are donated to Children's National Health System in Washington D.C., INOVA Children's Hospital in Fairfax, Virginia, Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore, MD, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, The Children's Hospital of San Antonio, Helen DeVos Children's Hospital in Michigan, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, IL and other organizations serving children with cancer. 

​We hope to provide a rewarding mission for knitters and crocheters to create items of comfort for kids with cancer. Experienced crafters can send us completed toys to bring to the hospital, or knit squares of any size that we turn into kits for cancer patients to create their own bunnies. We can also connect crafters with their local children's hospitals to spread Cancer Kickin' Critters wherever there are kids in treatment.
