We Deliver Smiles


Mason’s Toy Box is nonprofit organization which lends support to families engaged in pediatric medical life-altering struggles by offering gifts to hospitalized children (and their family members). We provide relief to families facing overwhelming emotional and financial burdens. We raise awareness for childhood cancer and we fund pediatric medical research.

Our signature event is an annual holiday toy drive in memory of Mason Clark Thomas who was taken from us by Neuroblastoma at 11 yrs. old. Mason loved to give his toys and games to kids he thought could use some cheering up and, perhaps, just needed them more. We are seven years and several hospitals strong!

Mason's Toy Box

Santa's making virtual visits to kids in quarantine! Whether at home or hospital, the Mason's Toy Box Foundation's jolly old elf can visit our kids via live, real-time chat! Santa will be taking gift requests from pediatric patients and their families ahead of the VIRTUAL TOY DRIVE!

Yes, things are a little different this year but we will still ring in the holidays with medically-fragile children. Santa Claus will be making his list, checking it twice, and his MTBF Elves will make sure kids' needs get met.

Virtual visits with Santa will be by appointment only. Sign-ups will begin October 1st.

Would you like to be a Santa for this new adventure? Send us a note: masonstoybox@gmail.com

Mason's Toy Box

Meet Lynley. She’s 20 months old, diagnosed with bacterial meningitis at 11 weeks old and fought like a champ to survive it. Because of this battle so early in life, Lynley has other medical issues she’s battling and some will be life long. It’s hard to tell she’s a sick child just by looking at her photos, but she suffers with a blood clotting disorder, epilepsy, a compromised immune system, a rare gene mutation, signs of lupus (Dr.s at Duke University expect she will be diagnosed with lupus within the next year), and she has photosensitivity. Lynley has two older sisters that she can’t join in outside play due to the photosensitivity. Mason’s Toy Box would like to coordinate having the families’ existing porch enclosed with screens and 2 ceiling fans installed (10x20 pics below), as well as get her an outside playhouse. We feel these things will help provide her the opportunity to play in an outdoor setting with her sisters, without harm. We’ve also included an amazon wishlist (in comment field) that her mom posted to her community page Lynleys Light. If you are able to help fulfill her wishes in any way, please contact us directly. ... See MoreSee Less
