Christmas for Kids is a fundraiser created to provide children in need with Christmas gifts. Whether that's donating toys to children's hospitals and foster homes, or sponsoring struggling families.
Our goal is to raise $20,000 to spend as follows:
- Purchasing gifts to donate to children's hospitals and foster homes
- Sponsoring families in need
This campaign was started with the hope to bring back a little happiness to the difficult lives of these children. To put a smile on a child's face is one of the purest forms of joy and fulfillment I know. Every year, thousands of children spend Christmas without toys and family meals, some without warm homes and beds, some in a hospital! There are thousands of families that have fallen on hard times whose struggle seems to double during the holidays.
That's where we come in!
With the funds we raise, we will purchase toys and games for children in need. Last year we were able to give over $5000 in gifts to Stony Brook Children's Hospital.
However, rather than spending money at big corporations that don't need it...we shop local. We spend the money at local "mom and pops" stores - small businesses that are family-owned. We find this works two-fold: We can buy gifts for children in need as well as support small business!
We'll also be sponsoring families in need. We've worked with RiverFund last year to help 5 families. This year we're hoping to sponsor even more!
We are asking all of you to write us letters for someone you know that needs a little help during the holidays. We ask that you provide the name of the family, along with a description of their current situation and what we can do to help. If we select your family and you wish to remain anonymous, we will not disclose who sent us the letter. Our goal is to provide these families with gifts, food, a Christmas tree or even just help with bills. Please send letters using the form on our website: Christmas for Kids Letters
We greatly appreciate all your generosity and support. Please donate and share this page with friends and family. Let's spread the word, spread the love and spread the spirit of Christmas to the kids!
You are amazing! Please stay safe this holiday season.
Thank you and God Bless!
