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.

Compassion

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.

Charity

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.

Community

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.

Today is International Childhood Cancer Awareness Day. 🎗💛🎗 This is our Sweet Joey. This picture was taken shortly after his diagnosis. He was only 3 months old. By the time he was 1 1/2, he had already gone through a Year of Chemotherapy and 6 weeks of Radiation.

Tears!! Last night President Trump called for a $500 million in funding for medical research on Childhood Cancer over a decade, a cause he said “All Americans Can Get Behind”. Yes, last night tears were streaming down my face and my phone blew up with excited texts.

With 2018 coming to a close, we would like to say Thank You to each and every one of you for your love and support of Joey's Toy Box. It is hard to believe that it was 10 years ago that Joey asked that fateful question: "Mom, Would People Give A Little Kid Money?". I believe that he knew the answer to that question. He knew what he was laying at our feet. He knew the "gift" he would leave behind. It is because of you, "Team Joey", that we were able to give out over 7000 individual toys to our young cancer warriors this year. We also gave blankets, hats, costumes, sealed stuffed animals, etc,... We quietly helped families in need of a little pick me up by sending a care package of a favorite toy or a box of costumes or an item to help place a smile on a little face. We sent cards to Mom & Dad, each card had a monetary gift to help offset expenses or just allow for a family fun day. At the request of the Child Life Specialists, we started delivering essential oils. This is a new program and we are excited to hear how the oils have aided our kids/families with neausea or anxiety. 2018 also brought growth. We started delivering toys to MD Anderson in Houston, Texas and have a team of volunteers standing by to aid and assist any of our "Team Joey" families having to travel to Houston for treatment. And we will kick off 2019 by adding the Emory Windship Cancer Institute - Emory Proton Therapy Center to our Joey's Toy Box family. There are only 27 centers in the United States that offer Proton Therapy to patients. The Emory Proton Therapy Center will include kids not only from Georgia and the United States but from all over the world. Once again, Thank You "Team Joey"!!! Happy New Year!!

Hannah is an amazing young lady and now she is officially 10 years Cancer Free!! She is also the very first recipient of a “special” gift from Joey’s Toy Box. To celebrate her special day, Hannah decided that she would like to raise money to purchase toys for Joey’s Toy Box. When her wrestling team heard about what she was doing they took it one step further. Last night during the Coweta County Wrestling Championships, the Newnan High School Wrestling Team surprise Hannah with a check for JTB. When Mr. Stout of Tim Stout & Associates heard about what Hannah wanted to do, he took it a step further! Together they raised $2000 in honor of Hannah and her 10 Year Cancer Free Anniversary! As an added bonus for the night, Hannah is now the Champion for her weight class. Congratulations Hannah!

In the world of Childhood Cancer your family bed can be your lifeline, your sanity and definitely your peace. That bed gives you enough room to “sleep” next to your child as you monitor the after effects of chemo or a fever as a temperature of 101 immediately sends you to the hospital. It allows you to listen to your child breathe, most nights it’s that sweet peaceful breath that lulls you to sleep. It also gives your child comfort in knowing that you are right there and it allows enough room for your other kids to pile in as well. It’s your comfort. Yet, sometimes major accidents happen. Joey’s Toy Box would like to give a HUGE Thank You to Julie from Mattress By Appointment South Atlanta - Newnan for their generous donation!!! Today, Mom doesn’t have to think outside the box on how she’s going to clean that bed.

Today was a very special and emotional day! Today we made our very first toy delivery to M.D. Anderson in Houston, Texas! This is a full circle moment as M.D. Anderson is where Joey’s cancer journey began. We have an amazing group of friends who have volunteered to be the “Joey’s Toy Box Lonestar”. They will be our “boots on the ground” in Texas. If we ever have a family from Atlanta travel to Houston for treatment they will know that they have “family” waiting to take care of them, they will have comfort in knowing that they are not all alone. While we started Joey’s journey at M.D. Anderson the first year and a half of his treatment was done at Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christy. When we reached out to M.D Anderson we discovered that this full circle moment was even bigger than we realized. The doctor in the photograph is Dr. Mejia. Dr. Mejia was the doctor on the beach who saved Robby’s life the day he was attacked by a shark. He is now in charge of the Pediatric ICU at M.D Anderson. We would like to thank the Los Carnales/La Familia Point Blank chapter for choosing Joeys Toy Box as their charity. And we would like to thank Toys for Tots of Ft. Bend for donating toys to a M.D Anderson family we adopted for Christmas this year. We look forward to seeing what the future brings, as Joey’s dream continues,...now in Texas.

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.
