A PERSONAL NOTE FROM WENDY, THE FOUNDER
OF LOVING HUGS.
Loving Hugs has been my heart and soul, my spirit and my
life’s focus for 6-1/2 years. The organization’s stuffed animal
“Hugs” program grew to an overwhelming work load. As worthwhile
as this work is, it became more than I could do by myself with
the variety of constant, growing needs. As a non-profit, but
without staff members to help, Loving Hugs has achieved more
success than I could ever have dreamed possible (See
Unfortunately, I have come to a point where I am unable to
continue the overwhelming pace and must move on to gain salaried
employment, and stretch into other aspects of my life.
My sincere gratitude for
the incredible generosity of Heritage Cleaners, New Method
Marketing, Cybermail Marketing, Marie Leslie Media, and Avalon
Aveda Spa for their sponsorships and support. Loving Hugs could
not have been successful without them! In addition, Bradford
Auto Body was enormously generous in sharing their space with
us, as well as Aspen Grove Shopping Center, Broadridge Plaza,
and Littleton Square, who all donated space for us when we
needed it. I hope you will continue to support these businesses
that have been so generous to us! Their generosity– as well as
that of our donors, our volunteers, our partnerships with other
nonprofit organizations, and the US Navy, enabled us to operate
our program, benefitting children in need world-wide.
