Peppa Pig and The Muddy Puddles Project - Making a Splash for a Worthy Cause!

Post By: Julia Eisler



I’m so happy to spread the word about The Muddy Puddles Project, Peppa Pig’s chosen charity, that celebrates kids being kids and all the silly and fun aspects that come along with it to honor all kids who are battling cancer and unable to enjoy such simple childhood pleasures.

The Muddy Puddles Project is a fundraising platform for the Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation, a certified 501(c)(3) that funds pediatric cancer research. The project was inspired by Ty, a little boy who loved Peppa Pig and dreamed of jumping in muddy puddles when his cancer was cured. Since his passing, the Muddy Puddles Project continues to grow by leaps and bounds with families all across the U.S. joining the mission and participating in special fundraising activities.

April marks the beginning of a whole season of special events – including Peppa-inspired Welly Walks to benefit the charity.

What is a Welly Walk? It’s as simple as it sounds: an organized stroll outside – rain or shine! – in your favorite pair of wellies (rain boots). As Peppa Pig’s Mummy Pig wisely says, “If you jump in muddy puddles, you must wear your boots.”

I'm glad to learn about this cause. How touching a child's dream to be able to jump in mud puddles. Then to be able to start a foundation for these children.
