FAQ

How many children should I request?

Plan to spend $150-200 per child. Individuals may request 1-2 children while groups or departments may request 3+ children, depending on how much money you think you will be able to raise.

What kinds of items should I purchase?

We suggest that you purchase warm clothing and shoes along with fun gifts as well. Keep the donations equitable between children in the same family.
