Thanksgiving is by far one of our favorite holidays. We love spending time with our families, reflecting on the many reasons we’re grateful and of course, enjoying a delicious meal. It’s a wonderful day spent with those we love most, making our hearts feel fuller than ever.
The holiday season is one of giving and Matilda Jane is a company built on giving back. This month, we wanted to highlight the various organizations we’re supporting through Thankful Thursdays. Each Thursday in November we’ve shared a different organization we’re partnering with this holiday season. Some are local to us in Indiana, while others have a more national presence, but the one thing they all have in common is that with charitable donations, they can make a significant impact on the community.
Mighty Acorn Foundation
We kicked off November with a donation to the Mighty Acorn Foundation’s annual auction. Matilda Jane is a regular sponsor of the Mighty Acorn Foundation, as it was created by our founder, Denise DeMarchis. Mighty Acorn’s mission is to rescue children living in unimaginable conditions across the world. Inspired by a trip to Kenya, Denise and her husband David created Mighty Acorn to connect children living in the slums to an open-hearted family in the United States. Learn more about Mighty Acorn Foundation.
Riley Children’s Foundation
Riley Children’s Foundation is the primary fundraising organization for Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health. Riley Hospital is one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation and relies on generous donations to deliver family-centric care and life-saving pediatric research. We’re proud to have such an incredible organization right in our backyard in Indiana! Donate to Riley Children’s Foundation.
Toys for Tots
The Marine Corps Toys for Tots program collects new, unwrapped toys for less fortunate children at Christmastime. Last year alone, Toys for Tots donated toys to seven million children in the United States. We are happy to be involved this year donating 1,000 toys for the holiday season. There are many ways you can get involved ranging from donating online to in person. Learn more and donate to Toys for Tots.
Wounded Warrior Project
The Wounded Warrior Project is an incredible organization focused on supporting veterans and active service members who have incurred a physical injury or mental illness from their time in the military. The WWP provides a community for warriors to recover in a supportive environment. Learn more about the Wounded Warrior Project.
This Thanksgiving, we’re excited to be partnering with Allen County Salvation Army to help feed local families. We’re sponsoring 50 families so they’ll have a full turkey dinner to enjoy on Thanksgiving.
From Matilda Jane family to yours, have a happy Thanksgiving!
