The little red bows foundation 
raising awareness+spreading smiles

 

 

 

   

                 

"A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal."
 
Our Mission: Since 2013, members of Team Red Bows have been striving to do as much as they can to give back to Children's Hospital of Orange County, raise awareness for pediatric long-term illnesses, and to spread smiles across the faces of children fighting long-term illnesses.

How We Do It: Team Red Bows participates in charitable events for CHOC such as the CHOC Walk in Disneyland. We also organize our own events such as The Day of Kids on Global Youth Service Day, awareness speeches, local fundraisers, and multiple toy basket deliveries throughout the year.

How YOU Can join Team Red Bows:

1. Share our story and mission with others through social media! Like "Little Red Bows Foundation" on Facebook and follow @littleredbowsfoundation on Instagram.

2.  Join us for CHOC events and our own events, and help us spread the word about them!
   
3. Donate! We are an IRS registered non-profit organization which means 100% of donations go towards funding our events, toy basket deliveries, or towards CHOC events.
 

These are the toys that are most needed at CHOC. Any of the approved toys can be donated at our events.
