Into the night to save the day!

Earlier this summer, PJ Masks and Give Kids the World partnered to choose two kids to star in IRL episodes of the preschool series. On Sept. 20, Kellan Hoang and Madison Hendricksen will share their episodes with the families of Give Kids the World on a special day stacked with PJ Masks-themed activities.

Give Kids the World is an 89-acre nonprofit resort in Florida for critically ill kids and their families to take week-long, magical vacations. Every family is treated to an all-inclusive trip that makes dreams come true. On the day of the event, the resort will feature a special screening of PJ Masks; giveaways for all attendees; a meet and greet with Catboy, Owlette, and Gekko; a chance to meet baby alligators from Gatorland; and ice cream for breakfast!

Hoang and Hendrickson are both true epitomes of heroes. Hoang was diagnosed with lymphocytic leukemia at 4 years old and bravely won his battle two years later. Hendricksen has hypotonic cerebral palsy and every day commits to joy. These kids may not have to defeat Romeo, but they save the day in many ways.

Hasbro has supported Give Kids the World for more than 15 years and will also donate $10,000 to the organization in honor of this special day. Families can donate to Give Kids the World here.
