My mom is a pretty awesome person. I’ve sung her praises before. One of the most recent awesome things she has done is to band together with my aunt to start their own company. Three cheers for entrepreneurship! What’s even more amazing is the business they have decided to create: a gluten free, allergy friendly play dough called Giggles Fun Dough.
You may be wondering why play dough needs to be so free of allergens, kids just play with it right? But we all know that anything that goes on a kids’ hands also goes in their mouth. Everything must be tasted as far as children are concerned. So they have created a dough that is free of corn, dairy, eggs, fish, gluten, mustard, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, sulphites, tree nuts, and wheat. There are also no artificial dyes or perfumes used in the product and the production facility is latex free. This way all kids can get messy, and stick their hands in their mouths.
I am so unbelievably proud of my mom and aunt for what they have accomplished in the past two years, but there is still a far ways to go to get this product out to the general public. To help make it happen they just launched an indiegogo campaign to try and raise funds to increase production. If you have never heard of indiegogo the basic concept is that instead of them going to one or two investors and asking for large financial contributions, they ask the general public for help. You can donate a few dollars or a few hundred dollars. All contributions are appreciated and funders are thanked with perks ranging from a website thank you all the way up to mountains and mountains of Giggles Fun Dough product!
Take a moment to watch their awesome campaign video below (made more awesome by the fact that I edited it), and then if it pulls at your heart strings at all (if it doesn’t I will be shocked), then please take a moment to check out their full campaign. If you are unable to financially contribute at this time your support by following the campaign and/or sharing the information with everyone you know is also greatly appreciated.
