Farmington Hills Kids Had Hand in Jimmy Kimmel’s Rainbow ‘Suit of the Loom’

Late-night TV host’s suit of oh-so-many-colors started out as a joke, but now it’s being sold to raise money for kids with cancer.

Did you see that suit Jimmy Kimmel was wearing the other night on his late-night talk show? It was  hard not to.

But before you quip that you “just can’t unsee” the TV host’s Rainbow Loom suit or make some other snide remark, quiet your snarky tongue: Students from Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School in Farmington Hills contributed by sending a large collection of looms, and the final product will raise money for kids with cancer

Kimmel, the host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” asked viewers in January to send him rainbow loom creations just for the heck of it, but later decided to use his show’s platform to raise money for children with cancer.

According to WXYZ, the ABC affiliate in Detroit, Kimmel collected enough looms to make boxer shorts for Guillermo, his uncle/security guard who appears on the show.

Kimmel plans to sell the suit on eBay and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the MaxLove Project, s nonprofit group inspired by a 7-year-old California youth who is battling brain cancer. His classmates plan to make the longest loom chain ever created to raise money to fight the illness.
