My Friend Huggles Mimi was there when a special little girl in CHU Sainte-Justine got a visit from the Montréal Allouettes.

The famous Montréal Allouettes recently visited CHU Sainte-Justine, Mother and Child University Hospital Centre. During the visit one little girl had My Friend Huggles’ Mimi doll keeping her company in bed. It’s absolutely wonderful and kind when celebrities and sports figures take the time to lift the spirits of kids. Giving courage and confidence. Way to go Allouettes!!!
