Save the Children is an organization dedicated to serving impoverished children and families in over 120 nations. Donations to the Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund will provide disaster relief and support long term recovery plans to restore education and child care in Japanese communities ravaged by disasters.
Since the destructive tsunami hit Japan, Save the Children has sent emergency response teams to aid the children and families during this critical time. They have also created several child-friendly areas throughout evacuation centers in Sendai City where the displaced families are living. This allows children to play with others while the parents work to recover from this life altering disaster.
UPPAbaby is proud to sponsor Save the Children to support their responses to children’s urgent needs. To help support these desperate children and families affected by the earthquake, please visit https://secure.savethechildren.org/
Children’s Hospital Boston is one of the largest centers for pediatric health care in the United States. The scientists at Children’s have exceeded expectations and discovered treatments and therapies for countless debilitating and perplexing diseases.
Children’s Hospital offers health care services for children from birth to 21 years. It is home to the world’s largest research enterprise in a pediatric hospital with the finest scientists and staff members from the most honorable medical institutions and academies.
UPPAbaby is proud to support the Children’s Hospital in Boston to bring to attention the thousands of children suffering from these traumatic diseases each year. We made a donation to the Children’s play area where they can escape from their stressful and hectic daily check-ups and chemotherapy sessions to simply be a kid again and play alongside the family and friends they’ve made along their hospital journey. Melissa Huggard, our very own Director of Marketing, is personally invested in the health and recovery of her cousin, Nicole, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments at Children’s Hospital.
