Give the gift of Warmth this Winter
October 31, 2016
While our mission with M/C is to inspire more outdoor play and exploration in our increasingly urban lives, we also recognize that, for a signifigant portion of Detroiters, being outside is sometimes not a safe, healthy and positive choice.
Help us give the gift of Warmth this Winter!
Your donation dollar makes a big impact when you give warmth through our fundraising campaign with Mittens for Detroit. Your generosity makes a significant and immediate difference in the daily lives of children and adults in Detroit, Michigan, by both warming hands and hearts.
Last year - we were able to raise over $200 through MOR & Co. during a brief holiday sales partnership. This year we are hoping to more than double that effort with a goal of $500 raised by Nov 10th.
Working with their product partner Michigan's Broner Hat & Glove, we are able to leverage your gift to go much farther here in Detroit than your purchasing dollar can.
- A donation of $35 will warm the hands of 5
- A donation of $75 will warm 10
- A donation of $150 will warm 20
- A donation of $500 will warm 70
- A donation of $1000 will warm over 140!
In addition - The top five organizations will receive additional money from the Give Detroit Challenge - up to $20,000!
Mittens for Detroit is a small nonprofit, with a huge impact - 168,000 pairs collected and distributed in the first 6 years of operation.
How does Mittens for Detroit work? They are a nonprofit that collects, purchases and distributes new mittens and gloves to children and adults in need in Detroit and other underserved communities. This season's goal is 55,000 pairs. Last year 63,000 new pairs were donated.
Mittens for Detroit operates under the fiscal sponsorship of the Kids Like Us!, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Donations are tax-deductible, and will process through Kids Like Us!
Public collection boxes are also in more than 180 locations this year, October 1st through January 31st. Please visit our website for more information, please - www.MittensForDetroit.org.
