Backwards Burglar is a holiday charity event sponsored by Michigan Creative. This is our 7th year of hosting Backwards Burglar: the good guy in disguise! The goal of the Backwards Burglar is not to steal items but instead to fill homes with Christmas cheer. After gathering donations, we at Michigan Creative shop for a family in need, wrap presents, and “break-in” to their home with the help of a neighbor or friend. This annual holiday event is a fun and exciting way to spread the joy of the holiday season.
This year we are partnering with Child & Family Charities, a local non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families and children in need. All donations will go towards one of the many requests Child & Family Charities receives from families each year, especially during the holidays.
We need all the help we can get! The more donations we receive, the more families we can help. We do not keep a penny, so please donate what you can to help us spread holiday cheer to the Lansing community.
More information about Child and Family Charities:
Founded as the Ingham County Branch of the Michigan Children's Aid Society in 1911, the original missions of Child and Family Charities was "to secure for every child the same love and same opportunity that we would have our children receive should they become orphaned or friendless." Over one years later, the agency now provides critical prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery programs for abused, neglected and at-risk children and youth and their families-- directed at keeping families intact and a belief that the strength of the community lies in the health, happiness, and self-sufficiency of its families.
