The gift will be used to hire a full-time employee to handle crisis calls and cases. The money will also fund the printing and distribution of materials that offer help to teens across the country.

Project Cuddle has rescued 152 babies since Debbe Magnusen launched the nonprofit organization three years ago from her Costa Mesa home. Kelly Cole, vice president and general manager of Neiman Marcus in Fashion Island Newport Beach, presented the check to Magnusen on Thursday. (714) 432-9681.
