Our Pillow Pet Program has skyrocketed! We are thrilled about this. What we have found is the demand is there and we fear that soon it will be greater than the supply. We've been very fortunate to have so many wonderful and generous donors, as well, as a wonderful working relationship with the maker of My Pillow Pets, which has allowed us to touch the lives of so many critically ill children.
Through monetary donations received by TLC we are able to purchase the "My Pillow Pets" at cost, a big savings, making the money stretch further to purchase more pillow pets than you would be able to through retail. We are ever so grateful to CJ Products for this opportunity, and for them in supporting our mission to comfort critically ill children.
We received 366 donated pillow pets, and enough monetary donations to purchase an additional 96 making our total 462 for the holiday drive. Our balance as of now is 240. It will go fast. We anticipate it being depleted this Spring or shortly thereafter.
It is our goal to fund raise year round and will accept donations, whether monetary or in-kind year round so that we may be able to continue to supply the hospitals and foundations with pillow pets as the needs arise.
Please remember that you can donate year round to support the Pillow Pets for Pediatrics program, or any other efforts of TLC. There are many ways to donate; monetarily directly to TLC, hold a "drive" through your club, organization or group, collect for TLC in lieu of birthday presents for a birthday party. If you have any questions or ideas on how to donate, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 443-690-3433
