every purchase makes a positive impact.
We proudly support
Second Chance Toys
Thanks to each individual purchase at Rose & Rex, we are thrilled to sponsor Second Chance Toys, a New York based nonprofit organization that rescues, refurbishes and donates plastic toys to children in need. By collecting toys made out of non-biodegradable plastic that would typically end up in landfills, Second Chance Toys helps protect the planet and promote children’s ability (and right!) to play.
Many families cannot afford to give their child a toy. Nearly 14 million children in the United States–22% of all children–live in families with incomes below the federal poverty level, which is $22,050 a year for a family of four. Second Chance Toys has donated 207,292 toys to children who lack access. These toys create joy and enhance a child’s development by promoting social learning, creativity, emotional development, and fine motor skills.
Through our partnership, we aim to advance their cause so that all children have the essential opportunity to grow and develop through play.
