Allie's Friends was established in August 2004 by Allie's Mom, Diane Dowd. Allie loved animals and loved to hug everyone. It is Diane's wish to keep Allie's memory alive by providing stuffed animals to emergency rooms and ambulance squads across the country. This way one of Allie's stuffed animals friends can be there to comfort a child and help to hug the hurt away.
We ask that you continue to keep Allie's family in your prayers, as well as the injured children around the country who are comforted by one of Allie's Friends.
All donations and proceeds of Allie's Friends Foundation merchandise goes toward purchasing new stuffed animals to comfort children in medical emergencies. With an Allie's Friends Foundation donation you have a chance to comfort a child who is on there way to the hospital or already in the Emergency Room.
