TLC Mizzles 2015

Every year our school does a school-wide fundraiser for TLC (True Lasting Connections), which is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of health and medical services for families in the community who are in need of help.  This organization runs solely on donations and grants. It is a great organization and it feels great to participate in this fundraiser knowing the money will be going towards helping my students and their families.

A few years ago, I began auctioning my Mizzles to help raise money for this organization.  Each year, the Mizzles have become more elaborate in size, shape, and costume.  Last year, I created a superhero series.  They were fun characters who had useless superpowers.  This year the Mizzles are impersonating historical figures.

From left to right: Amelia Earhart Mizzle, Mahatma Gandhi Mizzle, Adolf Hitler Mizzle, Albert Einstein Mizzle, Abraham Lincoln Mizzle, Cleopatra Mizzle, and Queen Elizabeth I Mizzle.

Each Mizzle and their costume was sewn by hand.  They were a lot of work, but so much fun to make.
