About Loving Hugs Inc

Loving Hugs, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that is currently being reorganized and established in California. We hope to be up and running again with our Hugs program, reconfigured, early in 2015.

 

Major Karsteter - Inspiration for Loving Hugs

How We Got Started

Inspired by a letter shared with her from a U.S. soldier serving in Iraq in 2007, Wendy Clark, the founder of Loving Hugs, Inc., learned of the tragic consequences for Iraqi children caused by insurgent bombing attacks near where the soldier was based; many of the injured victims were innocent children. Some learned that had lost their families and were alone in the hospitals; many would ultimately be placed in orphanages.

 

Immediately Wendy was inspired to do something to help those children. Not just for those children in Iraq, but wherever children are in crisis situations caused by war, natural disasters, and extreme poverty.

 

Wendy began making contacts with individuals, schools, churches, and civic organizations, to collect and donate stuffed animals that were appropriate to give children suffering in crisis areas around the world, and to give them some emotional comfort and hope. The inspiration for Loving Hugs, Inc. was born!

The inspiration for Loving Hugs, Inc. was born!

 

We’re proud to say that Americans give generously, and donate funds and stuffed animals as a simple gesture of care, love, and compassion for children who need to know that someone cares.

 

While we are going through a reorganization and transition, we will not be able to accept stuffed animals donations for this loving purpose. Please email us if you would like to be updated on when we will be able to start taking donations of stuffed animals again.

Loving Hugs, Inc. partners with the U. S. Navy, and with U.S.-based international non-profit organizations to “Hug” children in crisis situations all over the world.

Hugs in Action!
