The Problem

At many family shelters, children\'s hospitals, and Child Advocacy Centers (which provide care for victims of child abuse), children get to choose a teddy bear or other plushie which gives them a cuddly friend to keep them company and allows them to reaffirm their goodness and agency through the act of choice. We are helping give children a unique toy choice and activities to inspire a love of science.

Our Plan

We assembled and delivered 12 dinosaur plushie activity kits to the Albany Medical Center Children\'s Hospital Child Life center in September 2022.
