It all began when lifestyle expert Meredith Sinclair’s two sons were younger and wanted to make gifts for their grandparents that were meaningful & useful. The catch was they needed an idea simple enough for the kids to create, while being something that would be cherished by family and friends. They happened upon a wrap pattern that could easily be made out of fleece. After some thought, they decided to call it a HUG, because that’s what the kids really wanted to give … a big, warm hug.
Meredith’s story became the inspiration for the Original Puffer Hug®! Today – and with your help – we plan on spreading joy, love and HUGS around the globe (that would be 21,614,068 Puffer Hugs!) and use profits to improve children's mental health programs and awareness.
