Puffer Hug is proud to donate a portion of online sales towards improving children’s mental health programs. Together, we can bring greater awareness to children’s mental health. These programs help fund research on developing new treatments as well as educate and empower both families and communities to better understand and care for the mental health of our youth to create lasting change.

Puffer Hug is proud to have made a $25,000 donation to support the Center for Childhood Resilience, a program of the top-rated Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois.
Promoting mental wellness, health, and resilience has a positive impact on many areas of a young person’s life, including academic learning, family and social relationships, and in later years, their professional success. Children and youth who are resilient are better able to cope with challenges, manage stress, and make healthy choices. Yet, many children and youth do not have access to behavioral health supports they need.
Lurie Children’s Center for Childhood Resilience (CCR) is dedicated to promoting access to high-quality mental health services for children and adolescents across the nation. Their expert team leads innovative trainings, develops new interventions, and builds strong city and statewide school and community collaborations. Through this work, CCR promotes systems change, increases access, and reduces mental health disparities.
