BuddyBagz is excited to introduce The Brave Buddy! We created Brave Buddy for all kids who need a friend to remind them that they are brave enough to overcome any struggle or fear. His sweet face and soft, snuggly sleeping bag body is a big hug any time a child needs one.
The Brave Buddy idea came from our work with The Valerie Fund and was inspired by all of the brave kids who fight cancer and blood disorders every day. When a child is admitted for treatments they are usually concerned about the unknown. BuddyBagz allows them to have a friend by their side that they can bring in and out of treatments. In addition to being a cuddly sleeping bag and pillow to rest with, the duffle bag helps to carry the stuff that they need to and from the treatment center.
The Valerie Fund Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders provides care to over 6,000 children and their families each year in New Jersey, New York, and the Philadelphia area.
At BuddyBagz, our goal is to have a special Buddy sleeping bag on the bed of every child in treatment. We donate 15% of the profits of the Brave Buddy to The Valerie Fund. And if you order from this page, for every 25 BuddyBagz bought, we will donate one to a child who needs a buddy.
We believe that every child has the right to feel brave and have a “buddy” by their side. For every Brave BuddyBagz that we sell we will donate a portion of the proceeds to The Valerie Fund to ensure that every child fighting a battle with cancer or a blood disorder (big or small) can have a Buddy by their side. Our hope is that through BuddyBagz we can make a difference in the lives of children in need.
Hoping for sweet dreams–
Carly, Mike, Taylor, Keira and AJ
