Black Tie International: My Stuff Bags Foundation

My Stuff Bags Foundation

Toy Industry Foundation and My Stuff Bags Foundation Deliver Toys and Games to Children from Horton’s Kids at Capitol Hill Event

Washington, DC| November 3, 2011 – The Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) and strategic partner My Stuff Bags Foundation (MSB) joined forces with federal legislators to distribute “My Stuff” duffel bags to 35 children affiliated with Horton’s Kids, a local non-profit that provides comprehensive services to the children of Washington DC’s Ward 8, improving the quality of their daily lives.

The duffels were filled with essential items including patriotic-themed toys, games, stuffed animals, toiletries and handmade blankets. Kids also took part in arts and crafts projects and interacted with members of Congress, representatives of the toy industry and staff of the TIF and MSB Foundations.  

“At the Toy Industry Foundation, we think every child deserves joy through play,” said Jean Butler, Executive Director Toy Industry Foundation. “The children served by Horton’s are no different.  We are thrilled to be able to give them new toys and games – and to show them that we really care.”

“It’s such a pleasure to be here in Washington, D.C., to offer these children new belongings,” added Janeen Holmes, President/CEO of the My Stuff Bags Foundation. “Each individual My Stuff Bag contains not only things these kids need, things to do and things to hold onto, but the message that lots of people want them to be happy!  Our foundation is grateful to have the generous support of the Toy Industry Foundation and of so many individuals across the country who donate new ‘stuff’ for the bags and the labor to help fill them.”

The Toy Industry Foundation has provided grant funding of $525,000 and more than 150,000 new toys over three years to My Stuff Bags Foundation.

About Horton’s Kids ( )

Horton’s Kids services over 150 children in grades
K – 12 from the Wellington Park apartment complex in the Anacostia section of Washington, D.C.’s Ward 8.  Their neighborhood is considered a “HotSpot” by the Metropolitan Police Department.  Programs include tutoring, mentoring, enrichment & athletics, and family support to provide children and families with clothing, gifts, and other items.

About the Toy Industry Foundation (

The Toy Industry Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring joy, comfort, and learning to children in need through toys and play.  While other organizations provide food, shelter and support services to children and their families, TIF sees to it that these children have toys and opportunities to play in an attempt to restore both fun and a sense of normalcy to their lives.  The Foundation currently fulfills its mission through core programs including The Toy Bank™, public education initiatives, and grants to organizations whose missions are in line with that of the Toy Industry Foundation.


About My Stuff Bags Foundation (

My Stuff Bags Foundation was launched in 1998 to address some of the immediate physical and emotional needs of children who must be rescued from abuse, neglect, and abandonment or who are economically disadvantaged. In some cases the foundation also serves children who have been displaced due to natural disasters.  Traumatized by the events leading to their rescue, these children often enter crisis shelters, domestic violence centers or foster care with no belongings.  Each individual My Stuff Bag is filled by volunteers with new, donated items including toys, books, a stuffed animal, personal toiletries, a warm blanket, and other basic childhood necessities. The items in a My Stuff Bag provide comfort and hope to rescued children, and send the message that lots of people do care about them.
