I believe that anyone who can cheer up a child who's suffering from a sickness is a superhero. That point was proven as superheroes really did cheer up some kids in the OSF Children's Hospital in Peoria, Illinois.

WMBD News shared this short but sweet video of a window washing company who decided to strap on Captain America and Batman costumes to spread some cheer with the kids inside. This happened at OSF Children's Hospital in Peoria.

According to the video, the company is called Clearly Windows who are in charge of keeping the children's hospital windows clean already. This has become an annual event for them as they become superheroes appearing outside the children's windows in hopes of inspiring a smile or two. You can tell by several kids shown in the video that their goal was achieved.

It's a small gesture, but you never know when a pick-me-up like this could truly be the encouragement these kids need. Superheroes indeed.
