Medi Teddy is a company started by 12 year old Ella Casano. Ella has to have IVs every 8 weeks and designed Medi Teddy (a stuffed animal pouch) to conceal bags of IV medication or blood products from pediatric patients like her who might be feeling scared in the hospital.
From original post: Ella has a patent and a manufacturing company for her product (New England Toy), but the minimum order is 500 units. Help Ella get started with her first order so she can donate 500 Medi Teddys to children just like her.
The update: We thought if we were lucky, we would raise enough money to help 500 kids get a Medi Teddy for free. We figured we'd be delivering crates of Medi Teddys to hospitals in our community and that many might refuse us. Never in a million years did we expect the outpouring of world-wide support and desire for Medi Teddy! You guys knocked this out of the park and we are so grateful!!!! We are adapting quickly and working hard on the best plan to help as many kids as possible have a Medi Teddy for free and also how to meet the demand that we are experiencing.
The boring stuff: We will keep you posted on our tax status; we don't have 501(c)3 approval.
