We are a 501c3, private foundation, advocating for patients who suffer from chronic illness. In 2020, our mission is to educate and advocate for those affected by kidney disease leading to organ donation.
Each year, the Board of Directors determines a new mission to set out on, with goals in mind to accomplish using our foundation mascots, The MinminBears. These plush teddy bears may be used to help find individuals living organ donors, comfort sick children, or provide hope and healing for families affected by organ donation, educate school children, or even provide direct patient aide to those in need.
In 2020, we launched our first campaign as a foundation, called the #minminbearchallenge. This challenge is intended to help an individual named Mindy McCray, find a living kidney donor through an internet challenge that shares her story. If you'd like to learn more about how you can help, visit the Meet Mindy page on our website, www.minminbearfoundation.org.
