I met Barbara a little over a year ago and knew she was an awesome person!! I didn't realize how grea of a person until I heard of all the wonderful things she does for these children. Since then I've purchased capes for my own family and donated to help bring smiles to other children's faces. I will continue to support Kiss the Toad Crations as long as I'm able!!

I knew Barbara when she began making her Capes in her Home Business for all children. She made one for my Grandson and he LOVED it. Then, she was asked by an Organization for Children with diseases to make Capes for the kids that were fighting for their life every day. They needed 60 Capes, but left it up to Barbara as to how many she could donate. She made all 60!!!!!! When she saw their little faces light up with joy and smiles, her passion changed She began her Kiss The Toad Creations, Non-Profit Organization, a Charity that supplies Capes for Children that are suffering from life threatening diseases. She is now working with the Ronald McDonald Houses and is supplying Capes to Children all over the Nation. She wants to see a smile on the face of every child that is suffering. Every turn and corner of this organization has come from her heart, inspired by "her" Children. Please donate generously to this outstanding Charity. Barbara Graham

Kiss The Toad Creations is a wonderful Nonprofit organization, owned by an amazing woman, Barbara Casados. Barbara puts her heart and soul into this organization and I am so happy that it is now getting the recognition it deserves. KTTC brings a smile to every child's face whether they are sick or healthy. These capes allow children to use their imagination, make their dreams come true and become a Super Hero. Isn't that what we want for all children? To dream big and make those dreams come true. I am one of the lucky ones that gets to participate in the Events at the local hospitals. I, along side Barbara, get to see first hand how these terminally ill children light up and shine bright as they are presented with their very own Super Hero cape...and don't they deserve it! And for that moment, they forget they are sick and fighting for their lives. I am honored to be Barbara's friend and I feel so lucky to be able to participate in her organization.

Kiss the Toad Creations was started by an amazing woman who had a vision, determination and energy next to none. With 3 children of her own, Barbara dedicates all her spare hours giving back to other children in need. If there were more Barbaras, the world would definitely be a better place. Donate to Kiss the Toad Creations and see how you can change a child's life...

Barbara got me involved in making the T Shirts and has changed my life by helping, I am so grateful for being able to participate.. She is amazing in what she does and the energy in which she does it. I can only imagine the looks on the parents and kids faces when they see the Capes and T Shirts.

We have known Barbara since she was born. She is a very friendly and happy individual. Her efforts in volunteer work far exceeds what most people do in a complete lifetime. There is no end to Barbara's total giving of herself and the things she makes for underprivileged and deprived children. Her work in the field of charity kind of sneaked up on her. After she experienced some personal things that altered her mindset, Barbara switched her profitable business to a not for profit business. This shows how committed she is to doing good things in her life's future endeavors. Keep it up Barbara because we are excited to see to future achievements in your work with kids. All our blessings, Terry and Peggy M

Amazing doesn't even begin to describe Barbara. She has given so much of her time and herself to helping children fighting life threatening diseases. As her heart has grown and reaches out to so many children so has her organization. I hope that I can help her work towards her dream of putting a smile on as many little faces as she can. These kids ARE ALL super heros!
