Our Mission

We are a 501(c) organization dedicated to providing toys and other care items to childhood cancer patients undergoing treatment. Based out of Atlanta, we support metro-area hospitals by delivering items like movies, video games, toys, and gift cards.

100% of all donations go directly into supporting families confronted by childhood illness.


We work with families, hospitals and other charitable organizations to provide toys to kids undergoing intensive medical treatments. We know the positive impact simple comforts can make in tough times.


Donations go directly to items like toys, movies, and video games for pediatric oncology centers to give to patients. We also give out things like gift cards and vouchers for entertainment and family outings.


We hold motorcycle rides, brunches, auctions, and other events each year. Everything we do comes with the help and support of local businesses and community organizations that we appreciate so much.

When the Child Life Specialist from Hughes Spalding emails and asks if you can bring more toys, and you were just there two weeks ago, you bring her more toys!! While we were getting ready to unload the car of the boxes of toys, the sweetest young lady came up and asked if we were giving away toys. We asked her if she would like a blanket, she picked out one with little animals. The look on her little face was priceless. Thank you to the ladies of St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church for making all of the blankets! Your donations at work!

Please join us for our very first "Paint the Town Gold " committee meeting. When: Wednesday, August 2 Where: Cornerstone United Methodist Church Time: 7:00 pm What is the meeting about? This meeting is about bringing Awareness to Childhood Cancer. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The color GOLD represents Childhood Cancer! We want Gold splashed all over our community! We want people to ask: What's with all the Gold? We want "you" to see a Gold Cancer Ribbon and automatically think, Childhood Cancer. We need your help in order to accomplish this mission. While Childhood Cancer is considered rare, over 250,000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year (Alex's Lemonade Stand 2016). Coweta County isn't that large and yet, we have identified 25 children in our area who either are battling, have battled or earned their Angel Wing battling Childhood Cancer. That's a lot! Your participation in the "Painting the Town Gold" committee can be as simple as asking a business to hang a poster. The first step in fighting the battle of Childhood Cancer is Awareness! Hope to see you there! Joey's Mom

Today, our son Joey would have graduated East Coweta High School here in Newnan GA. Before starting the grad ceremony, the school held a moment of silence in his honor. We're very grateful they remembered him in that way. This day, along with many before, and I'm sure many to follow, is very difficult. Although Joey didn't physically walk across that stage today, we know he was there. I ask that everyone please support childhood cancer efforts, as so many children and families are engaged in that battle. Joey was born on May 13, 1999 in Harlingen TX, and graduated from this life on July 4, 2008. One day we will all walk across that same stage. In the meantime, give your kids a hug, tell 'em that you love them, and cherish every moment you have with them. God Bless, -Joey's dad

About us

JTB was founded by our son, Joey Doolittle. Joey was a lifelong cancer warrior who was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma at only 3 months of age. Throughout Joey's life, he underwent numerous chemotherapy protocols, surgeries, and radiation treatments. Toys provided by the hospitals always seemed to make his treatments a little more bearable. During the twilight of Joey's young life, when he was the sickest, he decided to conduct a fundraiser to raise money to buy the other kids at the hospital toys. On June 7, 2008, Joey raised $1,800 by organizing a "cycle-a-thon" at a local gym in Peachtree City, GA. A few days later, Joey made his first and only delivery of toys to the AFLAC Children's Cancer Center at Scottish Rite hospital in Atlanta. On July 4, 2008, after a lifetime battle against cancer, Joey peacefully passed away in his mother's arms.

Joey's impact on his family, friends, and other childhood cancer patients continues to evolve and flourish. His simple dream of helping the other kids and their families continues to live on because of the incredible community of volunteers that have felt Joey in their hearts. With no paid employees, we are a 100% volunteer army dedicated to the JTB mission. We operate this way so that we can put every dollar towards helping these kids and their families. We have dedicated ourselves to being good stewards of the money, time, and efforts of our volunteer community. We will continue Joey's mission with the compassion and integrity that he had when he started it... simple as that.
