LOS ANGELES (September 3, 2015) – Little Giraffe, luxury baby brand beloved by celebrities, announced today a charitable partnership with Miracles for Kids, a nonprofit organization serving children with life-threatening illnesses and the families that care for them. For every Little Giraffe Chenille Hush Blanket sold, the company will donate funds needed to produce a lovingly handmade blanket. These fleece blankets are hand-crafted each week by groups of dedicated Miracles for Kids volunteers, then packaged and delivered to a child who is facing a life-threatening illness at hospitals, care centers and private homes, and needs a little comfort and LOVE while undergoing treatment, throughout Southern California and beyond.
“Miracles for Kids is truly inspirational, and we couldn’t be happier to support them through our Works of Heart program of giving,” said Trish Moreno, President and CEO, Little Giraffe. “We’re thrilled to provide the resources needed to create even more lovingly hand-crafted Miracles blankets for children with life-threatening illnesses.”
“As longtime fans of Little Giraffe, we were thrilled at the opportunity to collaborate with them in our mission to serve children facing life-threatening illnesses and the families who care for them,” said Autumn Strier, President and CEO of Miracles for Kids. “Thanks to this generous partnership, our Miracles for Kids Cozies will continue to bring the gift of warmth and comfort to countless children in need.”
The joint “Buy One Give One” campaign is part of Little Giraffe’s “Works of Heart” program of giving, and applies to Chenille Hush Blankets ($62) sold at www.littlegiraffe.com.
