About The Joyful Heart Foundation

The Joyful Heart Foundation was created by Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actress and advocate Mariska Hargitay with the mission of transforming society’s response to sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse, supporting survivors’ healing, and ending this violence forever. Mariska’s goal is to help survivors reclaim lives of hope, possibility and joy, and to build a more just, more compassionate world. Learn more at

A note from Mariska Hargitay:

“At Joyful Heart, we transform the way our society responds to those of us who have experienced harm. One response — which we’re fortunately in charge of and can practice ourselves — is self-care. I use my Heart to Hug Pillow — and have shared them with family and friends — for that very reason: they’re a way of responding to our own needs, on our own terms. The idea is simple but profound, both scientific and intuitive. Gentle weighted pressure helps soothe the mind, body and heart. It’s a gift of healing touch, for ourselves and others, while we work to make a more compassionate world.”

I love my heart!

This is the perfect size and weight to keep on my lap while I'm working or unwinding after a long day. It's amazing how it really helps me feel calm and connected. And BONUS, it looks fabulous on my couch. I'll be ordering more for my friends and family - including the original Hugimals! I love them!

Amanda DeLuca
Totally worth it!

This is probably my favorite thing I've bought. It's so relaxing to just have both by my sides or on my chest. By far the best thing I've bought in support of the joy ful heart foundation and awesome businesses. You won't regret buying one! And if you can't decide on which to get buy both trust me they're so worth it. Not only do you get a weighted heart plush but you're also supporting a great cause and supporting a business who cares deeply about their customers!!

So soothing

Ever since I received mine; I do not sleep without it! It’s really soothing to me and relaxes me at bedtime. I will be ordering another one for a family member going through health issues at the moment.

A Perfect Hug

I really wanted the weighted blankets to work for me, but they were just too heavy and too hot. Luckily, The Heart to Hug is the perfect answer; it’s not only super soft but also a calming, comforting weight. The Peaceful Pink serves as the reminder I need.

Love Love Love

I ordered both the Peaceful Pink and the Fearless Red and absolutely love them. The pillows were shipped the same day I purchased and was delivered a day earlier than the original delivery date. They are super soft and the prefect weight. I highly recommend.


I absolutely adore it and it came so quick. Super good quality and totally worth the price.


In love! So soft and a perfect weight. My pillow shipped the same day I placed my order and came on time. Came in a nice bag for storage too, which was a plus. Highly recommend!
