Cuddles for kids is an amazing service organization whom we met during our 5 year old’s innital cancer diagnosis at children’s hospital of Pittsburgh. Since that time, this organization has provided many activities and boosts during our (now 7 year old) son’s cancer treatment, which is set to be completed in 2019. When a smile is needed, this organization has helped make our son feel like a normal kid while going through some of the worst times anyone could experience.
Cuddles for kids reaches so many people, from so many walks of life. They make a difference in the lives of others and continue to spread happiness to those who need it.
A wonderful organization, with wonderful people working hard to make a difference in the lives of others.
Wonderful hometown charity, begun over 12 years ago. The founder, Conner Hagins is an incredibly hard-working young man, with a huge heart for those in need. The charity has donated items for hospitalized children, families in need, and sponsors scholarships for local high school graduates. This year, they have had ( or participated in ) many events, throughout our local area(such as, but not limited to)--Tube-a-Palooza (in conjunction with Coal Tubin'), CFK Back-to-School-Movie Day, the David Alan Fashion Show, as well as the charity's annual holiday toy collection, to name a few. In a time when there is so much negativity in our world, Cuddles for Kids proves that there are still individuals out there who truly want to make a difference--and make the world a better place!
I have not only helped collect stuffed animals and other toys and toiletries for this organization, but have seen the smiles on children that have been given one of these stuffed animals after being in a traumatic incident. I thank everyone for their involvement in making such a small gesture into such a major impact in the communities that the serve.
