NORBERTHOOD FOR GOOD
My life's purpose is to make others smile. I once thought I couldn't do anything important because I'm so little, but I've learned you don't have to be big to make a BIG difference in the world. I work to help those of all ages through a kindhearted project I call Norberthood For Good. Everyone who helps me spread smiles is part of the Norberthood!
THE AWARD-WINNING NORBERT PLUSH
you buy one, I give one
Because I’m a mixed breed, there’s only one of me; so I had the idea that a soft, cuddly, huggable plush toy of me could make many people smile. Plus, it would be a daily reminder for them to think of ways to bring smiles to others, too! And there’s even BIGGER news! For every plush Norbert that you buy, I will donate a plush Norbert to Toys for Tots® where it will be given to a child in need, someone who could use a "little me" to hug and to hold! My Award-Winning First Edition and Second Edition plush toys are currently sold-out. I hope to offer a new Edition in 2018! Stay tuned.....
Let's Spread Smiles Together!
My Mom, Julie Steines (Freyermuth), and I are a registered therapy animal team. As a therapy dog, I have volunteered at nursing homes, hospitals, special events and schools. My mission as a therapy dog is simple: to spread smiles, inspire kindness and bring comfort to those in need.
I SUPPORT A VARIETY OF CHARITIES
AND ORGANIZATIONS INCLUDING:
- Children's Hospital Los Angeles
- Marine Toys for Tots
- Best Friends Animal Society
- Cure CMT4J
- Los Angeles Mission
- Boot Campaign
- Just for Kids Sake Foundation
- Lil BUB's BIG FUND for the ASPCA
I am proud and excited to be a volunteer at Children's Hospital Los Angeles as part of their Amerman Family Foundation Dog Therapy Program. As a registered therapy animal team, Julie and I visit with children who are sick and in need of comfort and smiles. We also work to help raise money to support the entirely donation-funded program. More info can be found HERE.
Lil BUB's BIG FUND
for the ASPCA
Through our Kickstarter campaign and the sale of our awesome picture book, Norbert & Lil BUB: What Can Little WE Do?, the famous cat Lil BUB and I have donated over $17,000 to BUB's Big Fund and over 1,800 books to children in need.
GOOD JOB BUB. HIgh-five, Norbert!
