The Spread the Joy Foundation is a non-profit that relies on the support of the entire community and greatly values collaborations with sponsors, donors, corporations, toy manufacturers & wholesalers, hospitals and other non-profits to distribute Joy Boxes to as many children as possible. 


We collect monetary donations as well as goods. All physical  items received must conform to the guidelines for giving adopted by the Children's Hospital. 


Every month our volunteers assemble Joy Boxes with so much love,  at our headquarters in Princeton, New Jersey. We welcome children to join in this process. If your company, sports team, camp or organization would like to host an assembly party, please contact us. Let's have some fun together!


To distribute Joy Boxes, we parter with pediatric hospitals that deliver them to patients at their bedside. See below for a complete list of hospitals we currently support. If you would like your donation to go to specific hospital, email us at and we'll make it happen! 

100% Guarantee: 100% of your online donation will be used to send Joy Boxes to hospitalized children. The Spread the Joy Foundation covers all operating expenses, including rent and transportation costs to hospitals.
