About

The idea for All Snuggled Up was born just after I gave birth to my third child in 2014.  While I was on maternity leave and away from my day job in entertainment, I volunteered at a local non-profit organization for children in Los Angeles that distributes new and used baby gear and clothing through a network of community-based organizations.  I spent several days with my newborn baby sorting items in the warehouse.  I also helped organize and prepare for one of their back-to-school events for young children.
At the event, I was able to help kids paint, sing songs with them, play games, eat lunch and talk with them and see the big smiles on their faces when they each received a backpack for school.

I was profoundly impacted by my experience volunteering there that summer. I knew then I wanted to do something for children and families that might have an impact on their lives and cause them to smile a little brighter.

I started All Snuggled Up, a social business created to positively impact children and families. With every purchase of a handmade, soft and cuddly blanket or item of clothing, we donate one to children in need t in Los Angeles.

I also believe in empowering individuals.  Giving is only one part of the solution to improve the lives of men, women and children.  Providing opportunities to become self-sufficient is the other.  And I am passionate about building a community of strong parents that can support their families and have confidence in themselves. Confidence comes with believing in yourself and also having champions out there that believe in you, too.

I would love to talk with you about becoming a Snuggle Generator in Los Angeles as part of the AllSnuggledUp community of Moms.
