“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” -Mother Teresa

At The Happy Groundhog Studio we have a Heart❤️ for all people to know that they are loved and worthy of a better life. We are doing that currently through donating a portion of our sales and time to organizations working locally and globally with the same mission. Ever wonder why we sew a heart on every creation? It reminds us of His love. We believe in a bigger purpose through God’s love for us and others.

Each month The Happy Groundhog Studio supports a child in Nicaragua. Compassion International exists as a child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled adults. Today, Compassion helps more than 1.3 million children in 26 countries.

We have helped to support 2 aftercare homes in India for girls that have been rescued from a life of Human Trafficking through Crossroads Church. While visiting one of these homes I had the opportunity to teach some sewing skills to the girls, it was amazing! We made these HEART ornaments…

Locally we partner with these great organizations.

Starfire Council is a visionary organization working to build better lives for people with disabilities. The data is clear; people with disabilities grow increasingly lonely and isolated as adults. Working with one person and their family at a time, Starfire connects people to relationships and uncovers a person’s talents and passions – so they can thrive in their communities alongside their neighbors.
