SendAFriend is a service where you can anonymously send a stuffed animal with a personalized note anywhere in the world.
There is no buyer information included in the package. The recipient will not know who sent the package unless you specifically put your name on the custom order note OR shipping address when ordering.
However, SendAFriend does reserve the exclusive right to reveal the sender's information if the recipient is concerned about their comfort or well being. Do not use SendAFriend with any sort of malicious intent.
When purchasing two or more care packages heading to different households, you'll need to place separate orders for each SendAFriend. This will allow you to address each package individually and ensure your fluffy friends will arrive at their respective new homes. You'll receive separate order and tracking information that will make it easy for you to keep up with each package.
When purchasing two or more care packages heading to the same household, we recommend placing one order. Having all of your friends packaged together means you’ll only have one order number/tracking number and ensures your fluffy friends will arrive at the same time. We recommend including the name of each intended recipient on their personalized card so that we can label each individual box with the recipient’s name. This way, you’ll know who to give the correct package to upon arrival.
If you need to edit your shipping address, billing address, custom note, or product, or cancel your order, please contact us here.
No, we do not allow foul language on our notes. SendAFriend is about spreading love & positivity. We will not fulfill any order with any offensive, obscene, demeaning, or otherwise inappropriate note.

We try to keep each and every animal in stock, but sometimes we cannot keep up with demand. We currently restock and launch new products about once per month. You can click on any out-of-stock product and sign up for alerts to be notified when it is back!
We're always looking for new animal suggestions! Click here to visit our request page to let us know what animals we should add.
If your stuffed friend gets a little dirty, try using a cloth with cold water and some mild soap. We recommend that you try to avoid machine washing in order to increase the lifespan of your friend. If you absolutely must machine wash your plush, use the gentlest cycle, with mild soap, and no fabric softener. Then let your friend air dry!
Each GiveAFriend purchase equals one (1) stuffed animal care package donated to a children's hospital in the US. This is a donation, so we do not ship any items to the customer. Purchase it here.
We work with multiple hospitals, most of which are currently in the midwest. Our first few batches of GiveAFriend donations will go to Children's Mercy Kansas City, STL Children's Hospital, and Shriner's Hospitals for Children. Purchase it here.
On average, we process GiveAFriend donations 2-3 times per month. Once your donation arrives to a hospital, you will receive an email with more information including where it went, when it was delivered, and the impact it had. Purchase one here.
Absolutely! As with all other sales, 10% of your purchase will directly benefit a children's hospital in the United States.
