Toys for Dominican Children

by Mencia Foundation


This project will be dedicated to providing toys for groups of children in the Dominican Republic, who otherwise will not have a toy to play with this Christmas. We will distribute toys to 350 children in rural areas of the Dominican Republic, including the provinces of Salcedo and Ocoa. We will do this on December 23rd and January 6th. With your help, we will put smiles in the faces of these children.

Some children in poor countries, such as the Dominican Republic, will never get the chance to own a toy in their lifetime. Play is an important part of childhood development. It helps them learn new skills and concepts, such as self-esteem, social skills, and problem solving. Our foundation will collect funds to provide toys for 350 children in this country.


We will distribute toys to a total of 350 children, in the Dominican Republic. This will encourage these children to play and improve areas such as social skills and intelligence. The Mencia Foundation will target children who otherwise would not receive a toy this Christmas.

Long-Term Impact

Toys stimulate imagination, brain development, self-esteem, social skills, etc. It is our hope that by providing toys for children this year, we will impact the children's well-being long-term.
