A good night’s rest is really one of the best gifts we can give our children, and ourselves, every day. At Cloud b we passionately believe that all children deserve this gift and because of this, we’re committed to working with organizations that help families in need.
Our primary charitable partner right now is Max’s Love Project, which was created to honor SuperMax Wilford, a five-year-old brain cancer-fighting SuperKid. Through Max’s Love Project, we provide Twilight Turtles to children dealing with cancer. Why Twilight Turtles? Here’s the story courtesy of GiveMaxLove.org:
When SuperMax (our organization’s namesake) came home from three weeks in the hospital after brain surgery in August 2011 he was very afraid of the dark. The four night lights in his room proved insufficient to soothe his fears. Max’s mom immediately ran out to purchase a Cloud b Twilight Turtle, hoping that the soothing stars would do the trick. Max now sleeps with it every night and loves how he’s able to turn it on whenever he chooses.
The turtles come with three different colors of star projections. Max immediately identified the green stars as “healing” stars. A part of his fighting/healing story includes the superpower color green. Green food, green drinks, and green energy all help a SuperKid like Max really fight the bad guys, so when he saw those green “healing” stars he was thrilled to have another way to fight. Max held the turtle, with the green stars projecting, up to the back of his head and showed his mommy how he’s able to help heal himself. This was such a remarkable display of empowerment, as well as the therapeutic aspects of positivity and stress relief, that Max’s family decided to find a way to share these amazing toys with other SuperKids fighting cancer.
As soon as Max’s Love Project (now MaxLove) was formed we contacted the Cloud b company and asked for support in getting these amazing ‘healing’ turtles into the hands of SuperKids across the United States. As of winter 2012/2013 Cloud b has donated over $100,000 worth of Twilight Turtles to SuperKids across the nation!
When we first created Twilight Turtle, we knew it would help kids sleep better, which helps promote healthy development. But, we never imagined it could be such a powerful tool for healing! It’s an honor and an inspiration to work with MaxLove and we hope you’ll help us support their efforts.
