The Sweet Pea Foundation is a wonderful organization that is dedicated to helping sick children. The Founders know first-hand what parents go through while they are caring for a sick child. The Sweet Pea Foundation's purpose is to provide a distraction to pediatric and NICU patients while they are waiting for doctors, tests, results and time to heal. They have donated toys, books, DVDs and crafts to multiple hospitals in Indiana and the Midwest.
