Making a Difference

ChildServe’s Bubble Ball wouldn’t be what it is if not for the generosity of fabulous local designers who donate their time to create bubble wrap masterpieces! The rules are simple: create something using bubble wrap 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! Every year, the finished products blow audiences away. What amazing talent we have residing right here in Des Moines!

Free Bubble Wrap Available for Designers
Free Pink, Red, Black, White, Yellow, Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Gold, Silver, Brown, and Clear (small bubble) bubble wrap is available for designers. Pick up is by appointment only as bubble wrap is stored a few minutes away from our building at a storage facility in Johnston. Please contact ChildServe before you come to make sure someone will be available to assist you.
