Toys for the Poor Foundation Inc., (herein “the Foundation”) took roots when its founder Mr. Frantz Devilmé encountered a mother with five children in tears because she could not afford any gifts for her children for Christmas. This moved Mr. Devilme deeply. Touched by her situation, Mr. Devilme, with the help of his business partners and some very close friends and family members, purchased some brand new toys for her children and for some other kids in the area. Therefore, they decided to continue year after year, until the movement became what it is today. Mr. Devilmé co-created an initiative to positively change his community by grass roots involvement. The Foundation’s aspirations were the following:
Instill a sense of hope to needy children throughout the community by “putting a smile on a child’s face” during the Christmas holiday season
Provide toys to underserved children from the ages 0 to 12 years old in the Little Haiti area of Miami, Florida, USA
This year event will be on December, 2019, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at 5401 NE 2 Avenue Miami. This is our tenth consecutive year. We are currently raising over 2500 toys for children. We are asking for help. Please purchase one or more unwrap toys for around $20 for a male or female child or you can simply donate $20 or more by mailing your check to toys for the Poor foundation 5401 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, Florida 33137
We will be collecting toys until the first week of December. With all of your assistance we can provide a toy for every single child and make him/her happy as we did for the last 9 years.
