Pengins For Everyone

Stuffed Penguins Bringing Smiles

Dover, PA

Mission

We are a family who loves stuffed penguins, or, as we say, "pengins." Once we got up to about, oh, several dozen of them, we realized we had to stop acquiring more of our own, so we decided to spread the love. What started as a few gifts to Toys for Tots and local children in the hospital has turned into an international effort with more than 20,000 requests received to date, and almost 500 given. At the start, we funded the project entirely through our own spare cash, and in June 2017, we began accepting public donations. We were approved as a 501(c)(3) effective October 2017 and are looking forward to finding new ways to get more pengins out to new homes.
