We make monthly contributions every month to respected children's charities that we believe are doing critical work to help children in our country and also beyond our borders.
There are thousands of worthy organizations out there, but these are the several for which we've provided support over the years - directly from sales revenue. When you buy from PeppyParents.com, we commit part of that sale to help children in need:
St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility anywhere. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do more science, more quickly. Where doctors across the world send their toughest cases and most vulnerable patients. Where no one pays for treatment beyond what is covered by insurance, and those without insurance are never asked to pay. St. Jude's is America's 3rd-largest health-care charity, with a model that keeps the costs down and the funds flowing, so the science never stops.

Loaves & Fishes provides a week's worth of nutritious groceries to individuals and families in a short-term crisis. Loaves & Fishes is a nonprofit, nondenominational organization, founded and operated by local religious congregations and community organizations. It grew out of an effort in 1975 at Holy Comforter Episcopal Church to respond to the growing hunger problem in Mecklenburg County North Carolina and continues to expand to meet that need.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles was founded on the notion of "one child, one wish" in 1983. Since that time, the organization has brightened the lives of over 6,300 children with a wide range of life-threatening medical conditions. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
