Facebook Build Along Projects for sale in the Real Good Toys Factory Outlet Store

Is it any wonder that dollhouses can play an important part in helping those less fortunate?  For three years Real Good Toys Facebook fans have participated with us in our annual Build Along.  Each year, as the Build Along winds down, Jennifer and I put our Build Along projects up for sale in our Factory Outlet Store.  We decided that the proceeds of the sale of these Build Along projects would be donated to the Vermont Foodbank.  Just recently a very excited customer bought one of these special, one-of-a-kind projects, and she was equally excited to know that she was helping the Vermont Foodbank at the same time.

Today I met with Stephani Kononan of the Vermont Foodbank to present these proceeds to that very worthy organization.  Stephani said our donation would help them provide 525 meals to our neighbors in need.  The Vermont FoodBank helps to feed as many as 86,000 Vermonters who need food assistance.  They provide assistance to 270 food shelves, meal sites, senior centers, shelters and after school programs throughout the state. The Vermont Foodbank is Vermont’s largest hunger relief organization. As we approach the holiday season when many Vermonters may find it difficult to provide meals for their families, Real Good Toys is happy to help through this donation to the Vermont Foodbank.
