Making a Difference

ChildServe’s Bubble Ball wouldn’t be what it is without the generosity of fabulous local designers who donate their time to create bubble cushioning masterpieces! The rules are simple: create something using BUBBLE WRAP® brand cushioning as the core element of your design. Local groups and individuals create bubblicious runway and stationary designs based on a yearly theme – and each and every one is comprised mainly of BUBBLE WRAP® brand cushioning! Every year, the finished products blow audiences away. What amazing talent we have residing right here in Des Moines!
