Ward’s Wishes Toy Drive

November 13, 2018

Make your own Puffy Heart, just like the one in Season 7, “You Belong”!

In Season 7, called “You Belong,” everyone in Discovery Mountain is gathering toys for Ward’s Wishes. The toys will go to children who have a parent in jail or are separated from their parent over the holidays. Ward’s Wishes is a fictitious charity created by Emma and Ethan Ward in Season 5 after their father the governor goes to jail.

As they’re listening, your children, grandchildren and students may feel inspired to help real families in their communities. We want to help you encourage that desire to serve others! Below are charities that you may want to connect with to help other families. We invite you to research these national options and also to inquire about where you can get involved at a local level where you live. Please note that we’re not affiliated with any of the organizations below and have nothing to urge—these are simply ideas to get you started!

Would you like to create your own “Puffy Heart” to match the one hanging in Trekkers? Watch the video above and create this fun craft with your young listeners. Email Ms. Jean at discoverymountain@vop.com for the secret directions for what to stuff your Puffy Heart with! Your listeners can open it over the holidays and be surprised right along with the characters in Discovery Mountain. The secret will be revealed in episode 7, called “The Christmas Surprise,” which airs on December 26, 2018.
