SkiffyTown promotes a better world through cooperation and caring.

About Us

We are all in this together – and we are glad you are visiting our site. This is our online meeting place, where we organize our activities, share ideas, and publicize our mission. SkiffyTown is a national network of friends that have gotten together to create unique costumed characters. Our members perform charitable acts in costume whenever appropriate to inspire others to take interest in our causes. SkiffyTown is primarily focused on helping children, however we will help any worthwhile cause whenever we can.

Our Work

We work together to make our cause known, to reach out to other groups who share our vision. Whether you’re ready to lend a hand at one of our activities or have photos or articles to share about a recent event, here’s the place to do it.

In the past our members have conducted children's hospital visits, food and toy drives, cemetary cleanups, winter coat drives for kids and animal rescue work. These are just some of the many things we have done.

Message from our president:

Greetings, friends!

We are Skiffytown, an organization that focuses on encouraging good ethics and morals in children through creative play. We present ourselves as "superheroes", but of course we do not fly or leap tall buildings in a single bound. Our powers come from our strong will to do good in the world, and our wish to encourage others to do the same.
Five years ago, our organization formed through our member's mutual interest in comics, cosplay, movies and books. Over time, we created our own characters and began to write fiction in which our heroes (and villains) made the world a better place. And while we started as a loosely connected group of fans, we decided to take it further and move our good acts into the real world.
In the years since, we have appeared at events, parades, and children's hospitals. We have appeared at conventions with our costume workshop, giving children a chance to act out their own heroic fantasies. We have conducted assemblies at schools to teach children safety. Our members, spread across the United States, are active in their communities helping the homeless and working with local organizations. We have "hero affiliations" in different cities, such as the Great Lakes Guardians, F.L.A.S.H, the Maryland Defenders and others. We have radio shows and video channels. We are, quite literally, everywhere.
On this website, you will find photos and videos from previous events, and announcements of future appearances. There are links to some of our affiliates and some of the causes they support. You can look back through our stories and follow the adventures of all of our heroes past and present.  As we move forward into the future, we welcome new members to join us. Feel free to read our charter and, if you want to join us, this site will show you how.
One does not need a cape and spandex to be a hero. One does not need massive wealth or superpowers. All one needs is a charitable heart and a strong will to make a difference. Once the decision is made to do good, it is simply a matter of choosing the action that does. Skiffytown is not a fictional city but a goal: an ideal that we choose to present in the hopes that the children, who are the future, will keep the world moving in the right direction. There is always room for love and hope in the world. It can be difficult sometimes to see that, but that is why we are here - as a reminder that good still exists and can be found very easily by just looking.
