A Letter from Munchkin's Founder, Steven Dunn:
I, along with millions of others, was extremely moved by the video Gordon and Kristen Gray created about their daughters, Charlotte (4 yrs) and Gwenyth (20 mos), who were both recently diagnosed with Batten Disease, a neurodegenerative disease that typically leaves kids aged 6 to 12 blind, immobile, cognitively impaired, and eventually dead.
As a father of two myself, I can’t fathom what a life-shattering diagnosis this must be for Charlotte and Gwenyth's parents. I am inspired by the tremendous courage they have shown by sharing their story with the world and along with my Munchkin family, am committed to helping them in any way I can. Here at Munchkin, we live and breathe the motto “It’s the little things.” We believe that any effort, whether big or small, can make a positive impact in someone’s life.
For the next 12 days, we are offering free shipping on all orders, and will be donating 100% of all proceeds earned on Munchkin.com to the Charlotte and Gwenyth Gray Foundation. The money raised will help fund research efforts in the hope of stopping the progression, and ultimately, finding a cure for Batten Disease. I invite you to join me in supporting this important cause.
