The current Lil’ Iguana costume is used in every live stage show, in-classroom program, meet & greet appearance, etc. The costume character Lil’ Iguana performs in all programs, and following the program is hugged and high-fived by the children who attended. Over 20,000 children come in contact with the Lil’ Iguana costume every year. This causes lots of wear on the costume.
The Foundation prides itself on taking excellent care of the costume, and has had the same costume for 10 years After several years of making small repairs, the costume must be replaced.
For now, Lil’ Iguana wears a shirt in order to cover the unrepairable damage to the front of the costume.
This campaign would finance the cost of 2 new costumes to keep up with Lil' Iguana's busy appearance schedule. These new costumes would allow the Foundation to continue to use Lil’ Iguana has the kid-friendly mascot at all of its educational programming.
