Paddington is speaking on behalf of homeless families -- and you can help.
Hold A Marmalade Drive
Kids around Connecticut are joining Paddington and the be homeful project in making a difference in the lives of children in our state. You can do your part to make sure a child like you can stay in the comfort of home this year.
It's easy — simply empty out a marmalade jar, decorate it with pictures that remind you of home, and hang a be homeful tag around the neck. Then try to be clever like Paddington and figure out how you can fill your jar with change.
Don't forget to let us know what you are planning!
