Cradles to Crayons

Cradles to Crayons was created in 2002 with the purpose of giving children ages 0 to 12 the necessities of life for free. These essentials include clothing, school supplies, toys, and so much more. They strive to provide children with high quality new/used goods that they need to be safe, ready to learn and feel valued.

Another campaign is their Gear Up for Winter initiative where they collect cold winter gear like coats, boots, pants, hats and gloves to the less fortunate Massachusetts families.

Get others involved! We held a donation drive at our Hingham office and we encourage your family and friends to do the same. Donate to help the less privileged kids of the Boston and Philadelphia area!

The National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) is non-profit organization dedicated to spreading their vision that all people born with Down Syndrome should be respected and valued members of society.

The NDSS believes all people with Down Syndrome should have a chance to fulfill their life goals and become active members of their community. They assist new parents with the transition home after welcoming baby through providing relevant information and true life experiences about the many talents of children born with Down Syndrome, along with helpful facts about life span and applied research findings.

UPPAbaby is proud to sponsor the National Down Syndrome Society to raise awareness about children born with this disability. For ways to contribute to this worthy cause, please visit
