Huggable Happiness is a teenage run public charity, that has the mission of empowering adolescents in our local community. As teenagers ourselves, we have noticed a trend. We constantly see expectations placed on our generation that, especially in the field of community service, could be much higher. We have noticed a lack of involvement of teenagers in our community and we have made it our goal to show that teenagers can do great things in our communities. We accomplish this by launching projects that are designed, run and planned by teenagers. Huggable Happiness Corp. was founded in December of 2017, as a young organization, we have one project that is currently operating. This project is called Cuddly Cubbies. Cuddly Cubbies are handsewn pillowcases with pockets. They are comfortable in the lap and easily portable. Huggable Happiness Corp, packages and distributes the CuddlyCubbies with toys, games, coloring books, movies, and other fun things that are useful for multiple age levels, and donates them to local hospitals.
We currently serve the population of Fishers and Indianapolis Indiana. This is done by the project called Cuddly Cubbies mentioned before. We hand sew pillows that have pockets, then stuff those pockets with toys and logic puzzles. The people served are children and families that stay in children’s hospitals. Currently, we have served over 200 families, and we have been operational for 6 months.
