Giving back has always been a priority at Budsies. With a mission like “making a more huggable world”, it’s no surprise that our team wanted to extend that vision through corporate giving. With the help of our incredible sponsors and partners, we’ve been able to provide hundreds of children the opportunity to create their own huggable stuffed animal friend at no cost to them.

Every year, we partner with hospitals and nonprofit organizations to help bring joy and comfort in the form of huggable stuffed animals to children who are at risk, undergoing medical treatment, or dealing with life-limiting illnesses. We have been blown away by the response from our community and the kindness of strangers towards this mission.
The Budsies Pals Fund is designed to build strong partnerships with non-profit organizations, and other local organizations that are striving to make a difference in the lives of children.
With the Budsies Pals Fund, we are able to donate directly, as well as connect with individual and corporate sponsors to raise even more funds for children.
The Fund is established through the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, which helps with administration and grant-making. Thanks to one of our sponsors, Budsies was able to present an initial funding check to the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay in the amount of $10,000 to launch the Budsies Pals Fund. If you are looking to support our community efforts with a monetary donation please click the donate button. Any amount helps!
We define success not just by revenue and growth, but also in how we can contribute to making the world a better place to live. We’re especially proud of the work we’ve done in our local community over the years with organizations like The Boca West Foundation, Joe DiMaggio's Children's Hospital, The Quantum House and more.
This year, we are partnering again with generous folks at The Boca West Foundation to sponsor kids at the Florence Fuller Child Development Center and SOS Village. These kids are incredibly resilient and their families and foster parents work so hard to give them what they need, so it’s an absolute pleasure to be able to offer them something that is pure FUN, which all children deserve.
We are INCREDIBLY thankful for the generosity of all our community sponsors. We'd like to especially thank our Premier Sponsors: Elizabeth Smith, Harry Radenberg and the GearsCRM team, and Knowbly for sponsoring an entire hospital. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
