Story Idea:

 WHEN A SMALL STUFFED ANIMAL CAN BE VERY,VERY BIG!

 How the Stories and Stuffed Animals for Seniors Began:

ARE YOU IN A RUT? A  SIMPLE START IS ALL IT TAKES!

I was in a rut. I needed to shake up my life and make some changes but I didn’t know how. I was “almost 60 something” and looking for some joy in my life. I found it…..by collecting and distributing 3500 stuffed animals – lions, tigers, snakes, teddy bears and lap blankets, for wheelchair bound residents of nursing homes.

And for others in need of comfort and encouragement, people going through rough patches in their lives. 

Sometimes inspiration for good comes from a most unlikely source. But how wonderful when I found the “spark” to make changes in my life!

I now know that joy is all around us – doing something kind for someone else really warms your own heart!

That is how I founded the  STORIES FOR SENIORS PROJECT.  

 MISSION STATEMENT:

The Stories for Seniors Project distributes new and gently-used stuffed animals and lap blankets such as crocheted, knitted and quilted afghans and fleece throw blankets to offer care and comfort to Seniors living in nursing homes, retirement communities,  cancer support groups, people struggling with addictions, Veterans Hospitals and shelters.  

I can see clearly now.

  • We each have a gift that can benefit others 
  • Simple things can put a smile on a nursing home resident’s face
  • No matter what your age, somebody needs you!  

I WANT TO SPREAD THE WORD – I AM JOYFUL AGAIN!
