 Batkid Begins Documentary (and Batman crochet patterns)!

MG 3720 600x400 Batkid Begins Documentary (and Batman crochet patterns)!

Were you one of the billions of people who helped Batkid’s wish come true? I was actually sitting in class that weekend when I learned about. I was in my San Francisco classroom and the lecture kept getting interrupted by the sounds of crowds and helicopters. We wondered aloud what it was until someone popped on to Twitter and saw that it was Batkid. That’s when I learned about Miles Scott. His story was so inspiring – and now there’s a documentary being made to share that story with even more people.

About Batkid

MG 3543 600x400 Batkid Begins Documentary (and Batman crochet patterns)!

On November 15, 2013, San Francisco was transformed into “Gotham City” for one very special 5-year-old boy named Miles Scott, who had fought leukemia (and won!). Miles had one wish: to be Batkid. No one could anticipate how many millions of hearts he’d capture when that wish became reality thanks to thousands of volunteers supporting Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area. Since I was in class, I didn’t get to go see the shenanigans but reading about it online made me love my city even more. This is what we do here; we support crazy, wonderful creative things and make life better for people.
