Spread some holiday cheer. Give a gift to a homeless child and help end family homelessness in Connecticut.
This holiday season, give a little bit of comfort to a child in shelter and help a family remain housed in the process. Between now and Christmas, for every $25 you donate to the be homeful project, we will donate an adorable Paddington™ plush, book, or baby gift to a child in a local shelter. The best part is that thanks to underwriting from our funders, all donations go directly to help local families.

Hold a Paddington bear-raiser drive to end homelessness for a local family.
Since 2015, the be homeful project has prevented more than 1000 children in families from ever having to experience the hardship of homelessness in the first place by providing much-needed emergency funds that frontline workers can access to help families in your community remain housed. In short, your gift will provide critical emergency assistance to help families on the verge of homelessness stay where they most want: at home.
