JR Toy Company
Contributing to Cancer Research
We at JR Toy Company feel that the power and growth of children through play and exploration is key to a successful and empowering childhood. We have partnered with Childhood Cancer Canada to provide a voice to the many children out there who have had their lives forever changed by cancer. By supporting childhood cancer awareness, research, and initiatives to comfort and provide for those affected, we hope to not only enhance the lives of children as they grow, but also empower them as they move through tough and difficult times.
Together with Childhood Cancer Canada, we’ve worked to create a donation program with multiple facets to allow customers to give monetary gifts to support families.
How We Are Making A Difference
The first part of our partnership allows anyone to gift a select amount of money to the initiative, without any purchase required. You may choose from any pre-determined amount, starting at $10 and moving up to $250, or can provide your own donation amount.
This donation form is located at the bottom of this page!
The second part is our round-up at checkout program, which allows our customers to round up their order to the nearest dollar to donate the difference to childhood cancer research initiatives.
Just select “round up my order” at checkout to show your support!
Meet Makenzy, Our JR Kids Representative
Makenzy is Anishinabe and is the youngest of four siblings. His name in Anishinabe is Zoongabwe, which means standing strong.
Makenzy was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) four days before his 2nd birthday in 2010.
In 2015, he relapsed and required a bone marrow transplant (BMT).
He relapsed again at age 10 and had CAR-T Cell therapy, and after his third and most recent relapse this year, Makenzy had a stem cell transplant using his mother’s stem cells.
Makenzy continues to stand strong. He says, "Everyday I am growing stronger. I am grateful for life, my family, my community, and my health care team."
JR Toy Company is proud to be able to share Makenzy's story and increase awareness of childhood cancer and help make a difference for children across the country.
