Huggaroo and One Simple Wish - Making Children's Wishes Come True

We love making children smile! From the first sale we made, we committed to share at least one percent of our profits every year with One Simple Wish - a wonderful non-profit organization, which supports children in foster care. We love being able to help children explore a new interest or pursue a new passion. Or to simply brighten their day with a new toy, movie tickets, or the chance to see their favorite singer live.

Thank you One Simple Wish for all the amazing work you do for kids in foster care! It has been a joy and an honor to work with you. And a big thank you to all Huggaroo customers - a portion of every purchase you make goes towards making another child's wish come true. Here are some of the wishes that we have fulfilled together since 2017:

Wish 48431: Electric Stove for Jamiya's family who is struggling due to COVID-19

Jamiya and her family have been getting fast food for nearly every meal now that their stove doesn't work. While they know this is not financially sustainable, they also do not have any money to use to purchase a working stove. They came to One Simple Wish with the hope that they could get assistance to purchase a stove in order to give Jamiya the life she deserves and access to healthy and home-cooked meals. 

Your Comment Posted Successfully - Dear Jamiya, I hope your stove helps you cook yummy home-cooked meals. Sending you a big hug today. Sincerely, Wendy and Team Huggaroo

 

Wish 48493: A New DVD Player for Hezekiah to watch movies to comfort him during the pandemic

Hezekiah has been in the system twice now due to substance abuse by his parents. He is now placed in a group home away from his sisters. He normally sees his sisters often but due to COVID-19, he can't visit them right now. He is having a difficult time adjusting to his group home and to the new environment due to the pandemic. One of the things that Hezekiah really enjoys is watching movies. He does have a collection of some of his favorite movies which are Lion King, Trolls and Spiderman but does not have a DVD player for his room. His CASA and therapist feel it would be a good outlet for him and could provide him comfort during a very difficult time.

Wish 48437: A Diary for Desiree who is a very private girl

The hope is that Desiree will feel like she can open up again and be able to express her feelings however she needs!

Wish 48415: Amazon Gift Cards for K'Star's 2020 Graduates 

K'Star has three kiddos graduating this year but sadly they don’t get to have the graduation ceremony that all students dream about. Due to quarantine they don’t receive a cap or gown, and won't be able to walk down the stage as everyone claps and acknowledges all of their hard work. Less than 10% of foster youth graduate so they certainly deserve all of the recognition! K'Star wants to perform a small graduation ceremony for them at the shelter and along with their ‘diploma’ they would love to hand them a gift. A gift card to be exact, perfectly presented in a special graduation cap box. So they will be able to get their very own cap and be able to celebrate, as they should!

Your Comment Posted Successfully - Dear K'Star 2020 Graduates, Congratulations!!! Sending you a big hug today. Sincerely, Wendy and Team Huggaroo
