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!
