The inspiration for Happy Hedgehog Post came from a post on a popular online Waldorf group. Many parents said they wished for a subscription service with a Waldorf influence. Founder and Owner Samantha decided that she wanted to fill the void. Using her skills as an artist and a teacher, she decided to create a Waldorf inspired craft service that follows the Waldorf calendar. A service that helps families make magical memories together through learning new handwork skills. So, in 2014, Happy Hedgehog Post was born.
We give back.
Charity is super important to us. 2% of each sale goes to humanitarian, environmental and animal rights causes. We donate to organizations like Polaris, Feeding America, PBS, Sierra Club, Angel Tree, Audubon Society, Amnesty International, Pacific Whale Foundation, RAICES, Save the Children, as well as local organizations.
We strive to buy ethically sourced and fair trade items whenever we can. We also use recycled packaging and responsibly sourced packaging for our orders as much as possible.
We are a community.
We aren't only a subscription service, though! Along with delivering each season's high-quality box, we also have a substantial online presence. By sharing the fun of unboxing, as well as creating each season's crafts and recipes along with other members, we hope you find a safe and happy place among our community.
We have a lively private Facebook group for families to share their crafts, traditions, and day-to-day lives. We have an Instagram account with a great group of followers and a blog that serves as an extension of each delivery, providing ideas for seasonal celebrations as well as tutorials for traditional Waldorf crafts.
Our goal isn't just to sell a product; we want to connect families at different stages in creating their Waldorf homes. We want to learn from each other and grow together. We also seek out partnerships with other small Waldorf businesses, because they are vital members of our community. We created Happy Hedgehog Post based on your ideas, and we will continue to listen to you.
There are many, many places to buy Waldorf products, but very few come with the kind of loving, supportive community that Happy Hedgehog Post customers are creating together. If this sounds like something you can relate to, join us today! We promise to only send you the best materials and to pleasantly surprise you with wonderful goodies every single season.
