Laura Wellington
Laura Wellington
The Wumblers
CEO

A few weeks after the 10 year anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11 we are interviewing a woman who saw a way to make a difference in the lives of those who lost loved ones. Laura Wellington CEO of The Giddy Gander Company, owns a multi-award winning children’s television show and brand called The Wumblers. The company was launched in the aftermath of 911 as well as the death of Laura’s husband from cancer after a three year battle, leaving Laura with 4 small children to raise and no income. Instead of crying in her soup, Laura decided to be selfless and give back to children and families that were experiencing similar devastation from the loss of loved ones in 911.

The mantra “making the world a better place to live for all children” became the catalyst and Wumbler slogan. Partnerships are vast and wide for the brand in the US, including Sorpresa TV (Spanish language educational television), National Center for Youth Issues (who handles distribution into public schools around the country), Health Media Network (distribution in hospitals and medical centers pediatric and maternity wards), the National Watermelon Association of the US (who uses the brand to teach nutrition to kids across the country being that Wumbler babies are born from watermelon), etc. The Wumblers newest partnership with Next One Interactive Inc. has given the company the opportunity to build and launch its own nationally distributed, English speaking children’s television block with the cornerstone series being The Wumblers.
 

MO: How do The Wumblers help “make the world a better place to live for all children?”
