A Magical Surprise: Debbe Magnusen's Heartwarming Encounter with Oprah at Disneyland

Can you imagine being whisked away in a stretched, blacked-out limo, with producers and cameras rolling, not knowing where you're headed, only to discover Oprah herself awaiting your arrival at Disneyland? This was Debbe Magnusen’s reality in one of the most thrilling experiences of her life. Oprah had flown in nearly 200 of the children Debbe had rescued from all over the country for a heartwarming surprise. The highlight? Meeting the youngest of these children, a two-week-old baby, during this joyful reunion.

Our Mission

Our Mission

Providing Safe and Legal Alternatives to Baby Abandonment

EIN: 33-0486176

Project Cuddle, through it’s CONFIDEINTAL toll-free 24/7 Crisis-Hotline, provides assistance that helps a girl walk away with their head held high knowing she made the best decision for her and her baby. No one breaks the law and the Birthmother chooses what’s right for her.

Project Cuddle helps by empowerin girls & women through emotional support, providing resources and shelter for pregnant girls & women in crisis or denial, “pregnexia”. Many find themselves victims of rape, drug addiction, incest, sex trafficking, as well as those that have already had a child and have been threatened with being kicked out of their homes if they get pregnant again. Others are already homeless and struggling just to get their next meal or find a place that’s safe to lay their head.

No matter the needs of those who call, we’re simply here to help and we NEVER judge!


We’ve educated girls and women on the importance of prenatal care. It’s helping them to move forward and not have to look back in the rear view mirror in a negative way. Whether they choose to give the baby up because of the situation of the pregnancy or the trauma of the pregnancy or they choose to raise their child and need education and support on how to make that happen, Project Cuddle is there to help.

We’ve helped women or girls do anything from getting their GED, drivers license, even tutors if needed, and we have encouraged many to strive to get their college diplomas, and some have even gone off to serve our country in the military.

We’ve always been so proud when we’ve received updates of success stories like, copies of diplomas, pictures of weddings, hearing about their first jobs as RN’s on the frontlines, and receiving copies of report cards from their little one. We’ve even been given stories of those little ones growing up and moving forward in their lives as a teacher, or even becoming parents themselves.

Encouraging prenatal care and providing healthy, safe, and legal alternatives to baby abandonment. 

“We help each girl and woman know she is not alone and we will be there to hold her hand and get her across the bridge safely to the other side. She can walk away with her head held high knowing she can be proud of the choices she made both for herself and her baby.” - Debbe Ann Magnusen -“The Baby Saver”
