one panda
at a time

Operation Panda Healing's mission is to help support sick children by spreading positivity and love through the touch of a fluffy squishy stuffed panda.

Our team sends a stuffed panda to children age 2 through 13 who live in the Continental US. These children are either chronically ill, managing debilitating diseases and health challenges, or are navigating an acute health crisis.

Our stuffed pandas bring hope, inner strength, determination and of course love to each child who gives one of our pandas a new home.

why the panda?

The panda is our son, Jack's, spirit animal. His stuffed pandas brought him strength, love and healing when he became acutely ill.
