I take such joy in promoting those causes that give back to others. The Muddy Puddles Project is such a note-worthy project and one that I want you to become familiar with. The Muddy Puddles Project was inspired by five-year old Ty Campbell, a little boy who absolutely LOVED Peppa Pig and 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. That just blesses my heart and I am so happy to spread the word about this!
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 the Ty 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.
How can you get involved? The Muddy Puddles Project is a celebration of children and childhood. In honor of all children battling cancer, we ask parents everywhere to let their kids get messy and jump in the mud on their behalf… simply because they can. We encourage you to host a mini mess fest of your own in order to bring this celebration to others. You can even GO HERE to download everything you need to host your own Muddy Puddles Mess Fest.
You can also consider hosting your very own Peppa-inspired Welly Walk to benefit the charity. What is a Welly Walk? It’s as simple as it sounds: an organized stroll outside – rain or shine! – in your favorite pair of wellies (rain boots). As Peppa Pig’s Mummy Pig wisely says, “If you jump in muddy puddles, you must wear your boots.” GO HERE for information on how to host your own Welly Walk.
