Of Puppets, Prison and Sesame Street

Seedling Foundation was contacted by Sesame Street to help to distribute their newly developed materials designed to help children coping with the tragedy of their parents’ incarceration.  

The following is a very touching piece from the Huffington Post that I think you’ll enjoy – and that I hope will make you very proud of the work Seedling is doing.

“The head writer of Sesame Street and a totally wonderful person, Joey Mazzarino has written a compelling and highly personal piece focusing on kids in our society who are always forgotten—those most vulnerable children whose parents are incarcerated.”
