“Prank for a Purpose” program delivers inflatable unicorns to raise money for pediatric cancer
TONAWANDA, NY (WKBW) — Last year, Hope Rises founder Kate Glaser and her husband bought eight inflatable unicorns — with plans to make April Fool’s Day 2022 big.
“We wanted to do something. At the time, we didn’t know what that would be, but like the unicorns, we knew it had to be big,” Glaser said.
As of April 1, Glaser and her husband have organized and launched the “Prank for a Purpose” program, which raises money for the Kaely’s Kindness Foundation.
“Kaely’s Kindness helps support and protect young girls suffering from childhood cancer. I want everyone to help if they can,” Glaser said.
So far, they’ve raised over $3,000 dollars for Kaely’s — with the help of local organizations such as Orchard Park Police Stations, Cheektowaga, Tonawanda City, and more.

The jokes are for everyone! If you want to send a unicorn to someone’s lawn, here’s the breakdown:
$25 – remove the unicorn someone placed on your property $50 – send the unicorn somewhere $1,500 – “retire” the unicorn and become a fundraising sponsor for Kaely’s Kindness.
