Taggies™ Donates Over $45,000 Worth of Product to Children's Hospital Boston

Facebook Fans Select St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as Favorite Charitable Organization

SPENCER, MA--(Marketwire - February 9, 2010) -  Taggies, Inc., the award-winning line of children's products featuring patented, multi-textured, looped satin tags, announced today its charitable giving results for 2009. Its Tags of Love™ matching gift program donated over $40,000 worth of product to Children's Hospital Boston. Last year Taggies celebrated its 10th anniversary by creating a Big TAGGIES™ retailer campaign that enabled the company to donate an additional $7,500 worth of product to Children's Hospital Boston.

Taggies' Tags of Love™ charitable giving program supports worldwide organizations that provide much needed children's care. Consumers purchase products at www.taggies.com to donate, and Taggies, Inc. matches each purchase with products of equal or greater value.

In 2009, Taggies engaged Facebook fans to become involved in its Tags of Love™ program by nominating a favorite charity to receive product donations. When fan numbers reached 1,000, Taggies donated $1,000 worth of products to its fan's favorite, St. Jude Children's Research hospital in Memphis, Tenn.
