Celebrate National Jump in Muddy Puddles Day - the Peppa Pig Way!

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 has grown by leaps and bounds with families all across the country joining the mission. To bring more awareness to the cause, kids and families as well as schools nationwide host their own “Welly Walks” and take part in the charity’s Mess Fest events to honor all children who are battling cancer and unable to enjoy such simple pleasures of childhood.

You can get join the The Muddy Puddles Project and get in on the “fun”-draising by hosting your own Welly Walk!   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.”

Additionally, they are  kicking off a special “Muddy Puddle Jump Challenge” on social media! They’re asking Peppa fans from coast-to-coast to post photos and videos of themselves jumping in a “muddy puddle” – just like Peppa and her family love to do! – to show their support for the charity and this special day. You can share a photo and/or video on your social pages in April with the hashtag #PeppaMuddyPuddleChallenge.
