April Showers Bring ... Muddy Puddles! And Muddy Puddles Bring Wellies Walks!
Friday, April 29, 2016
The Muddy Puddles Project is a celebration of children and childhood. It is a shift toward letting go of the everyday stress of being a grownup, and finding the fun in all things messy. We consider this celebration of childhood a therapeutic reprieve for parents, and an opportunity for our kids to have more fun while they still appreciate what that means.
The Muddy Puddles Project was inspired by five-year old Ty Campbell, a little boy who absolutely LOVED Peppa Pigand dreamed of jumping in muddy puddles just like her when his cancer was cured. The project embodies the act of kids being kids in honor of those who can’t.
At its core, The Muddy Puddles Project is a vehicle to remind parents to stop sweating the small stuff; but it is also a fundraising platform for theTy Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation in support of childhood cancer research. After Ty lost his battle with cancer, his parents committed to finding ways to fund innovative research geared toward safer, more effective treatment of various childhood cancers. It is the perfect vehicle to engage children in philanthropy because it encourages them to have fun while doing good.
Imagine the fun and reward of hosting a Wellies Walk in your neighborhood!
