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.

While we were at Dunc’s BBQ Kitchen Saturday, we were blessed in so many ways! A young mom came up to me and asked about Joey’s Toy Box. When I finished a brief version of what we do she said, y’all also take toys to the Grady Pediatric Burn Unit. When I said yes, she introduced me to the cutest little red headed boy. He received a Spider-Man Action Figure from us while he was a patient. It’s moments like this that make me smile! My little boy is touching people in so many ways. And of course, we wouldn’t be able to fulfill his mission without each and every one of you!

50 years ago Neil Armstrong landed on the moon and uttered those infamous words, “that’s one small step for man. One giant leap for mankind.” I can only imagine how he felt that day. You see, on January 28, 1962, the Armstrong’s lost their 2 1/2 year old daughter, “Muffy” to DIPG,brain Cancer. I imagine that he took a long look around and thought, I’m as close to heaven as I’m ever going to be and I still can’t touch you. There was no cure then, there is no cure now. If we can put a man on the moon, surely we can find a cure for Childhood Cancer.

Great article! Joey's Toy Box has been taking Essential Oils to the AFLAC Cancer Center Cancer Center at Scottish Rite and Egleston Children’s Hospital and the Emory Proton Center for almost a year now. So thankful that the Child Life Specialists requested these oils and that the physicians are open to the use of these oils.

It’s really nice to be able to deliver a Kindle Fire to a family whose child is battling cancer while Dad is in boot camp. It’s also extremely nice to be able to deliver a Mamaroo for the sweet babies at the Bone Marrow Transplant Center located at Egleston. None of this would be possible without YOU! Thank you so much for your generous donations!! YOUR donation dollars at work! 🎗💛🎗

I don’t know what we would have done without our Child Life Specialists. Each and every one of them hold an extremely special place in my heart! They are the ones who made the hospital “fun”. Joey loved his Child Life Specialist! He looked forward to seeing her and harassing her. Joey’s relationship with his Child Life Specialist is the reason Joey’s Toy Box was born.

Each year White Oak Elementary honors ONE student in the school with the "Spirit of Joey" Award. The student who wins this award must exemplify the spirit of Joey. This student must have demonstrated at least one of the following: Compassion for others, Selflessness, Willingness to help others, Consideration for those less fortunate, Being an inspiration to others, Being a cheerleader for those less fortunate, and finally, Having a kind and gentle heart. The teachers should submit a short summary of why they feel the nominated student qualifies for the award. The criteria for this award can also be discussed with classmates if the teacher would like to include student input prior to submitting his/her nomination. The administrators, counselors and specials teachers will discuss the students nominated and will select a winner of the award. This will be kept secret until the grade level ceremony of the nominated student. This is a lot to ask of an elementary student. And yet, they never cease to amaze me! It is really cool to watch the kids listen to the description of winner. They are trying figure it out. Some of them guess right away, some it takes a little longer, and when the winner is announced, they all kinda shake their heads as to say, yep, he/she deserved this award. Here is this years winner as read by White Oak Elementary's Principal, Mr. Clarke: Most years all the 5th grade teachers get together and discuss the best option for Joey Doolittle, not this year; this year we all knew who displays these behaviors consistently. This child is kind to ALL, this child (day in and day out) puts others first, he is always asking what he can do to help. In fact, just last week Mrs. Young made the comment to the 5th grade teachers that this student was the ONLY one to say "Thank You" to her for giving them an awesome AR water party. His caring heart and natural instincts to help classmates and teachers make him one of the most compassionate students in 5th grade. His precious smile and heart of gold light up the Rutledge Room every single day. With that being said, I would like to proudly announce that this year's recipient for the Joey Doolittle Award is ALEX WATKINS! Congratulations Alex!! Also, congratulations to Alex's parents on raising such a fine young man.

Every once in a while our Child Life Specialist’s request something odd, like a lint roller. Who would have thought to use a lint roller to capture some hair falling out. Too funny! Thinking outside of the box! 😊 Your donation dollars at work!

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.

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.
