PINKYSWEAR
Founded in 2003, Pinky Swear Foundation (formerly known as Miracles of Mitch Foundation) originated after a nine-year-old boy named Mitch passed away from bone- cancer. Just before, he gave away his life-savings to the other kids on his child oncology floor and made a pinky swear promise with his dad that they would always kelp kids with cancer, even after Mitch was gone. Toys from "Stuff the Sleigh" will benefit kids and families affected by cancer.


CHILDREN'S HOME SOCIETY
Children's Home Society of Minnesota has been forming and supporting families since 1889. Toys from "Stuff the Sleigh" will enable Children's Home to distribute holiday gifts to children under Minnesota Foster Care. The need is great! The number of children in Minnesota foster care is at a ten-year record high, with an astounding 820 children who are in need of an adoptive family immediately.


MINNEAPOLIS AND ST. PAUL POLICE
Toys collected from "Stuff the Sleigh" will be distributed at the police foundation's child holiday initiatives. These include donations to local hospitals, churches, school and neighborhoods. All monetary donations will be split evenly among these charities and be used to purchase additional toys so no Minnesota kids goes without a special surprise this holiday season.
