THE STORY:

4th Annual. It's still unbelievable to me that what started out as a "Hey, you wanna donate some toys to a hospital?" text exchange with Michelle Lankwarden would eventually lead to over $22,000 worth of toys, coats, socks, underwear, and giftcards donated to needy families across Los Angeles, for the holidays.

You probably know the story by now. The amazing doctors and nurses at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, in Burbank California, saved the life of my firstborn son, Harry, when he arrived in this world 5 weeks early. This is why we initially donated to this hospital. But thanks to the incredible generosity of our friends and family, and the support of the hospital's Mission Leadership and Services, we've been able to spread cheer to even more children in local shelters and organizations, including Family Promise, Hope of the Valley, Covenant House, and the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank.  

It's that time of year again. We'd love your help and support! We're excited to announce that we're once again partnering with the Providence Health and Services Foundation, to make ALL donations tax-deductible. And rest assured, the funds you donate are spent directly on toys and goods for the children at Saint Joseph's and these organizations. I know this, because at the end of our two week drive, we take one morning and personally spend every penny at Target, shopping our hearts out. We take volunteers with us every year; it's the best morning you can possibly imagine. 

Please give if you can. If you can't, we understand -- there are so many opportunities to do great things for those in need during the holidays, so if you're tapped out -- good for you! But if that's the case, please consider passing this message on to others. This drive has become one of the greatest blessings of my life. Let's keep it going. 

We're so grateful for you all.

Mike, Lauren, Harry, and Ben Hissrich
