I just wanted to say Thank you for the Flat Daddies program. We received ours on the best day!! My 4 year old daughter had to have surgery and her "daddy" could not be there so when we got back home....there it was!!!! After the trying time my little girl had, it put the biggest smile on her face. Thank you so much!!


Our daughter and her twin boys lived with us while her husband was in Afghanistan. He was gone for 19 out of the past 24 months......a long time for little guys. The flat daddy was AMAZING!!!!!! It made appearances in odd places like trick or treating and family photos, but some of our favorite stories were more intimate. One day my daughter came down stairs and one of the twins was holding the flat daddy and watching TV. When she asked him what he was doing he said, "I watchin' Mickey Mouse wif me dad." The photo is below. The two of them would take the flat daddy and play "tag" with dad by taking turns running around the house chasing each other "being daddy." It was always a comfort to them. Thank you so much for whoever donated the money to provide them with their flat daddy. I can't say enough how wonderful it was.

We love our flat daddy! My 14 month old lays on the floor and kisses daddy every night before bed. My older kids like it that daddy can still sit with us at dinner. It's just nice to still have daddy around!!!


We just got our Flat Daddy today, and my kids are over the moon! They have both been hugging and kissing him since i pinned it up! I"m gonna go get a poster fram for it tomorrow! Thanks so much!
