Dear prospective members of our “Stuffed With Love” (SWL) family,
My husband Scott and I believe that charity is very important and we continually discuss with our two daughters the importance of giving back to one’s community so, it was natural that we decided to begin “Stuffed With Love” or SWL, a charity event to celebrate our daughter Layla’s 7th birthday. Our kids were thrilled and wanted to be “doers”, so, with the help of friends and family, provided an environment where children would create stuffed animals that would be donated to charities where children in need could appreciate them.
As December 31, 2010 fell upon us, it became clear what our family’s New Year’s resolution should be: to enable children across the United States the opportunity to give back to their communities as well. This is the beginning of Kidz Give Back Foundation and “Stuffed With Love” (SWL) is an integral part of the foundation. We hope that you will become involved in some manner that will enable you and/or the children in your lives to give back by participating and becoming giving members of your community by supporting SWL. You may do so by hosting a SWL event, participating in a SWL event in your community, or by donating to Kidz Give Back Foundation. Our goal is to build accountable young adults who understand the importance of giving back. SWL will provide children and young adults this opportunity.
In 2014 we received a grant from the Fanny and Svante Kilstrom Foundation to enable 400 Bridgeport, CT students who are usually only the recipients of charity, the ability to make changes in their community and feel empowered. In 2015, we were fortunate again to receive this grant and provided this same opportunity to 500 inner city students in Harlem, New York. The smiles on these children’s faces was priceless and we strive to have more opportunities like these across the United States. Everyone can help us make this dream a reality by donating to our organization.
We look forward to working with you to brighten the lives of both healthy and needy children across the country by allowing children of all ages the opportunity to make a difference in this world and help children in need.
Hallie, Scott, Layla and Maya Wofsy
