Cuddles For Kids Making a difference…..one cuddle at a time!
About Us Cuddles for Kids was started in November of 2006 by then 10 year old Conner Hagins. Conner's goal was to collect new stuffed animals and donate them to children in area hospitals so they would have something to cuddle with when their parents were not with them and to help ease their fears. After the overwhelming amount of donations received, Conner realized that he could help many more children and reached out to other area non-profit children agencies. In the last four years, Conner received over 20,000 new stuffed animals and children's books which were donated to over 55 agencies and participated in the Today Show Annual Toy Drive with a donation of 2,000 toys donated in 2008 & 2009.
A CHILD REACHING OUT TO HELP OTHER CHILDREN Cuddles for Kids donates new stuffed animals and childrens’ books to area hospitals and children advocacy groups throughout the state of PA. In both 2008 & 2009 Cuddles for Kids donated 2,000 new stuffed toys to The Today Show Toy Drive. The goal is to help expand the program and meet needs of agencies across the World.
