Holiday Toy Drive Fund

$3,800 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 128 people in 44 months
Thank you for visiting The Riot Fest Foundation's GoFundMe page!

We are holding our first Holiday Toy Drive and need your help in reaching our fundraising goal of $2,500 by December 16th, 2015.

All proceeds will facilitate the purchase of toys for children ages 5 to 11 in the communities surrounding Douglas Park on Chicago’s West Side.

Every $10 we raise provides one child with a toy to unwrap on Christmas morning. Don’t be a scrooge, give what you can! Help us make a child’s Christmas wish a reality and donate today. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is tax deductible.

The Riot Fest Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization seeking to give back to local communities. Currently, charitable efforts are focused on the Little Village and North Lawndale neighborhoods on Chicago's West Side.

Our mission is to awaken passions, amplify dreams and enhance underserved communities through creative development, education and civic endeavors.

THANK YOU to each and every one of you for making our first Toy Drive such an immense success. We were able to pass out hundreds of toys to 12th Ward children at the Boys & Girls Club in Little Village yesterday as well as donate toys to local shelters in North Lawndale.

We could not have done this without you. Thank you for your shared commitment to our mission of giving back to local communities. We are proud to partner with you on our work.

Cheers to you!

But don't stop there! Every dollar we raise will help us purchase MORE toys for underserved children. Help us double our goal and expand our reach! We love you!
