Each month, our Matchbox program delivers an unforgettable day of fun for families who have a child with cancer all over the PNW. Every gleeful smile and belly laugh...every game played and memory made...it's ONLY possible because of this extraordinary Collective!
In our first two years of operation, we've grown by 518%. We want to keep pace with the growing demand, and we can't do that without YOU.
Thank you for giving generously to support the work we're doing!

$2,500 for one month
Each month on Matchbox Day, we send gift cards for meal delivery services like DoorDash or GrubHub so participating families can enjoy a stress-free dinner from their favorite local spot. These meals allow families to skip the stress of meal planning, cooking, and dirty dishes, and instead make room for laughter, connection, and memory-making.
Your gift of $2,500 helps cover the cost of feeding 50 families!
Fill the Gap
$2,500 for one month
So many of the delightful items we include in our Matchboxes are purchased from our Amazon Wish List by generous donors. Still, additional funds are required each month to purchase supplies that are not available on Amazon. Help us gather everything we need to make each Matchbox unforgettable for families.
Your gift of $2,500 helps us fill the gap!
