 TRUE STORY:  Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful” 

Life isn’t always perfect, but we CAN make it more wonderful for kids in need. This year, we’re expanding our giving to provide Halloween costumes for the children of Dignity Housing, and, as we do every holiday season, we’ll be providing gifts to these children at Christmastime.

We’re working on our new “more official” GoFundMe page, but in the meantime, please feel free to help us out HERE.

Help a little, or help a lot, and know that every dollar raised goes DIRECTLY to the kids.

A sweet story we wanted to share (from our previous blog)

Our contact at Dignity Housing just sent us a wonderful email, and besides giving US a reason to smile, the message that even one gift can make a difference in a child’s life really hit home for us. We hope this will make you smile today too.
Here’s the email:

“We had one little boy sneak into his birthday bag early when we weren’t looking. He found out he was getting a football and begged us to let him play with it early. We completely caved, so now he comes over every day and asks if he can play with the football. Then when he’s done he wraps it back up in tissue paper and puts it back in the bag so he could play with it for a bit.

Of course, you are responsible for these smiles too, so please keep your gifts, donations and gift cards coming – we really do need them, as we have a new updated list of children who are in need of birthday presents.

Thank you so much!

Doreen Creede, known as The Style Maniac (StyleManiac.com) featured Pegs Presents on her site.  Here’s the mention:  Our good friend Lee Romano Sequeira founded this charity in honor of her mom, who cared for more than a dozen foster kids over the years.  It’s heartbreaking to think of kids not having Christmas, and heartwarming to see how happy a simple gift makes them.  

To donate, go to www.gofundme.com/pegspresents or mail a new toy (1 month to 17 years) to Sparkle Plenty (c/o Peg’s Presents)  525 S. Fourth Street, Suite #242, Philadelphia, PA 19147.  (No stuffed animals at the moment please, they have a current stockpile).
