Help out victims with a Hug

Guest Author - Bonnie Sayers

SnuggL’Up™ America pillow products have garnered national recognition as a leader in comfort products for children and adults.

SnuggL’Up™ America comes up with the greatest logos. This one for example - "From 2 to 92, you're never too old to SnuggL' Up™! is quite true. I first heard of the pillows through yahoo groups, and two years ago while attending the Cure Autism Now Expo at the Los Angeles Walk Now event we stopped at the booth for SnuggL’Up™ America. The site is located at www.snugglupamerica.org

"The SnuggL’Up™ mission is to help spread comfort, security and love to children of all ages by helping teach philanthropy to our youth, donating a portion of sales proceeds to non-profit organizations, assisting with fund raising efforts, encouraging literacy and helping soothe the trauma of illness, abuse and grief."

The designs are colorful and vibrant, but when you touch them you want to SnuggL’Up™ America. The products come in various sizes, the SnuggL’Up™ pillow is 25" x 8" and is 100% hypoallergenic, fragrance free with no harmful pellets or beads - as are all their products. The SnuggL’Sac™ conforms to the body and is ideal for the child to take to daycare or nursery school, the SnuggL’Buddy™ measures 9" x 13". The SnuggL' Up™ Minis are six mini pillows - perfect for the toddler set and for games.

There are also travel pillows, pillow covers and the body pillow. When ordering online the payment is through Paypal. They are located in North Miami Beach, tax is added for orders in Florida and California. Shipping fees range from $5.95 - $18.95. Phone number is 305-705-1608.

With every online order through SnuggL'Up™ America there is a drop-down box to select a SnuggL' Up™ Partner. These include:

Celiac Foundation
Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Foundation
Katrina Fund - American Red Cross
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Kids With A Cause
LAPD Foundation
Gilda's Club
Retinoblastoma Foundation
JAFCO-Jewish Adoption and Foster-Care Options
PanCan for Pancreatic Cancer
Victory School for Autism

The ordering process is simplified in chart format with the photo, name of product, price, design and partner all at the click of a button. Usually there is a 20% donation to the SnuggL' Up™ Partner but in light of Hurricane Katrina this has been doubled to 40%, this is of net sales.

"This translates to an $8.00 donation for every SnuggL’Up™ Buddy and SnuggL’Up™ Mini purchased, $10.00 for every Original SnuggL’Up™ and $25.00 for every SnuggL’Up™ Snake and SnuggL’Up™ Body Pillow."

Some of the designs to choose from include:

Blue Demin
Flower Power
Dixie Dolls
Purple Denim
Pink Denim
Blue Sweethearts
Pink Sweethearts
Cats & Dogs
Cars, Trains, Planes

" SnuggL’Up™ pillow products have garnered national recognition as a leader in comfort products for children and adults. The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post have singled out SnuggL’Up™ for their philanthropic work and sense of comfort and security their pillow products provide for children and adults."

These products are hand or machine washable and dryable. They are all made in the U.S.A. There are rebate deals on the site also. There is a Smiles for Kids Program for schools, students and PTAs. Children on the Autism Spectrum just love these pillows. The smaller sized ones are perfect fidgets for the classroom and to keep in the car for traveling. We have the Blue Clouds design. Such a soft and silky material you will want one for yourself as well!

This is a wonderful gift idea and a way to help out the Hurricane Katrina victims with the 40% contribution from net sales. Now is the time to start shopping for the upcoming Holiday season and make some purchases for those staying in Texas shelters. A wonderful way to put a smile on a child's face and give them a start for sweet dreams.

***UPDATE*** - as of December 31, 2005 Snugglup is closing it's doors to the retail market. The non-profit organization will take over. http://www.snugglupamerica.org/
