MOORE, Okla. – For students at Plaza Towers and Briarwood elementary schools, it is now about gathering strength and moving forward.

Thanks to a non-profit halfway across the country, some of these kids now have superhero strength.

Barbara Casados has a special way of making kids feel invincible. She has the power to turn them into superheroes.

“The point to having a super hero cape is to let them go into an imagination land, get them away from reality,” she said.

Her non-profit, Kiss the Toad Creations, is based just outside of San Francisco.

The organization makes capes for children. Casados and other volunteers made 250 capes for kids in Moore, OK.

All of the capes are handmade and were delivered to young Briarwood and Plaza Towers students.

Casados originally started making the capes for her son with autism.

She now delivers them to hospitals for sick children.

She relies on donations to make the capes.
