Something small can be the biggest gift of all

Cuddles with Kindness is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to providing comfort to kids in need. Our mission is to provide comfort to children facing traumatic situations while amplifying our goal to inspire kindness and compassion, no matter your age. We do this by providing cuddly stuffed animals for them to hold on to. Founder, Taylor Larson spent 9 days in the OSF Children's Hospital of Illinois when she was a child. During her stay she received a bear on Valentine's Day. It changed her forever. Today, Taylor and the Cuddles with Kindness organization deliver's thousands of stuffed friends to children each year. Help us in our mission of "kindness."
