The Mighty Purple Cottage tells the story of a 6-year-old named Glinda. Glinda lives in a magical home with her Grandmother and older brother, Stevo. However, two monsters want to take away their beautiful home because it is not as large and grandiose as the other homes. The monsters represent anything that can take a child's, floods, or natural disasters. Each year, it is estimated 250,000 children lose a home and a home represents security. Eventually, Glinda is whisked into the sea where she meets a fancy octopus, a whale, and a school of fishes - all of whom share advice. When she comes back from her visit, the cottage is gone and a beautiful mermaid appears and tells Glinda to "Always see the best and beauty in life and you will be mighty like the cottage." She suggests to Glinda that she plant purple flowers in honor of her home and all the children who have lost homes. The Mighty Purple Cottage also has a foundation, The Mighty Purple Foundation. Each year, three children who have lost homes, are awarded $500 to purchase items that make them feel secure.
