Welcome to the ‘about us’ page of the website!
In 2015 a 17 year old young lady decided to make the world a bit better.
Well, that young lady is me.
Lieze Van Elst, 22 years old now and still working for my own non-profit organisation!
In 2015 I met Muna, an 8 year old girl fighting Wilms tumour (kidney cancer)
To cheer Muna up, I made a little frog shaped stuffed animal and when I gave it to Muna and saw her twinkling eyes and happy smile, I knew I wanted to do something like this more.
Perliespillows made stuffed animals for kids with cancer until March 2019.
We changed our ideas a bit and decided to focus more on other kids as well, so from now on Periespillows makes stuffed animals for kids with:
- Heart diseases
- Brain disorders
- Immune disorders
- Rare diseases
Our mission is to cheer the kids up, support them and protect them. The stuffed animals are made and shipped for free- worldwide.
