Hugs have the power to heal.
"…hugs can reduce stress, increase oxytocin which makes us feel more relaxed and happy, can reduce blood pressure, reduce our heart rates and increase immunity. These are all things that are fundamentally important for kids in hospital."
Janet Burke, Head of Child Life Therapy at Sydney Children’s Hospital
This November, Through the Hugs for Healing partnership with Children’s Hospital Foundations Australia, Huggies is asking Australians to join them in passing on their healing hug to sick babies and toddlers in Children’s Hospitals around Australia. We’ve partnered with CHFA to spread the word about the healing power of hugs and raise funds for medical equipment for sick babies and toddlers.
During November, we will pass on the power of a healing hug by donating $1 from every Huggies® Nappies Bulk pack sold. Up to $150,000 will go to CHFA. These funds will go towards high priority pieces of medical equipment, specifically for sick babies and toddlers.
By simply choosing to purchase Huggies® Nappies Bulk packs in November, you’re helping to fund medical equipment that will save lives.
This is the third consecutive year Huggies® have partnered with CHFA. In 2015, we created a compelling video series, sharing the stories of the kids we are helping. Watch the Hugs for Healing video at the top of the page.
