Make Life Sweeter for Foster Children in Need
For every purchase of Jake's Kids baking mixes, we will donate 5% of profits to children in foster care in the United States that have been affected by trauma, abuse and neglect. We love cookies, but our true passion is to better the lives of kids in foster care and to help make their dreams come true.
The Wonderfund of Massachusetts is a private, nonprofit, 501(c)3 that serves children engaged with the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families. The Wonderfund provides comfort and dignity to children in traumatic situations and enrich childhoods that have been impacted by abuse and neglect.
Research shows that childhood trauma makes it more likely for people to suffer from addiction, mental health issues, chronic illness, and early death. By supporting traumatized children, the Wonderfund can help them build resiliency, confidence, and agency over their own lives. We can help them overcome significant obstacles and increase their chance of becoming healthy, productive adults.
The Wonderfund strives to empower every child involved with DCF to experience hope, confidence, and joy and wants kids to be kids. Catching a fly ball, painting a beautiful picture, passing your driver’s test, these are the moments that all kids deserve. The Wonderfund gives kids and teens served by DCF the opportunity to enjoy childhood’s magical moments. Every penny counts and every cookie mix purchased helps with donations to this amazing organization.
Donations are put to excellent use:
100% of kids experiencing emergency home removals receive aid in the form of gift cards or a new duffel bag filled with seasonally appropriate clothing, pajamas, socks and underwear to give each child something to call their own.
30,090 children received enrichment opportunities such as music lessons, SAT prep and 47% more children are able to attend camps
45,000 kids received holiday gifts from Wonderfund donors last year
The Wonderfund also gives foster families in Massachusetts gift cards so that their foster children can enjoy trips to the movies, museums, professional sports games, the theater. These moments build confidence, character and foster lifelong respect for themselves and others by keeping their minds and bodies active outside of school. The Wonderfund believes that every child deserves to do the things they love and our goal is to enrich our kids lives.
