The Baby Buggy Charity
As we celebrate our soon-to-be moms, it can be easy to forget the less fortunate families among us. For many new parents, essential items like bottles, diapers, clothing, and cribs are simply out of reach. To help these families, wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld, Jessica Seinfeld started Baby Buggy, a non-profit organization that distributes essential baby items to needy families. To date, more than 5.9 million items have been donated to hundreds of thousands of vulnerable families. Baby Buggy also offers comprehensive social service assistance including job training, financial literacy classes, and parenting support & education.
Today, on behalf of Baby Buggy, Stokke, a world leader in developing functional children's products, is providing a collection of baby essentials for our two new moms, Natalie and Ruzon.
If you would like to donate, find a collecting location, or learn more about the wonderful work done by Baby Buggy, visit: www.babybuggy.org.
