Rosie Hippo endeavors to be a toy company with a conscience...in what we stand for, in what we sell, and in what we support. We partner with like-minded organizations dedicated to trying to make a difference...for children.... for parents.... and for our planet. We are proud to support the following organizations:

Room to Grow

Room to Grow, whose goal is to enrich the lives of babies born into poverty throughout their critical first three years of development. From November 1st through December 31st, Rosie Hippo donates a toy to Room to Grow for every order over $100. To date, we have donated over $26,000 to this great children’s charity! You can also shop our Room to Grow Gift Registry to purchase a toy at a significantly reduced price for a Room to Grow child to receive at a special Holiday Party in early December.

Charity: Water

Charity: Water, focused on bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. My son Ethan is raising $5,000 to build a well in Africa and is almost halfway to his goal! This has been a wonderful learning experience for our entire family – children have such big hearts for giving, and it is so inspiring to watch our son forego birthday and holiday gifts in exchange for donations to this worthy charity.

The Young Survival Coalition

The Young Survival Coalition (YSC), dedicated to increasing the quality and quantity of life for women diagnosed with breast cancer ages 40 and under. In 2010, I ran (and walked!) the NYC Marathon to help raise money for this organization that meant so much to me in my own fight against breast cancer. It has inspired me to get back on my own track to fitness as well!

Rosie Pink Package, a nonprofit foundation with a purpose to provide comfort and care to mothers who have been diagnosed with breast cancer by nurturing their connection to their children. Breast cancer is a devastating diagnosis for any woman, but especially so for mothers. Concern for her own health is often eclipsed by worry about how her diagnosis will affect her children. Rosie Pink Package products help moms fighting cancer create and connect with their children through simple and deeply engaging activities. A perfect gift of memorable moments for any mom, a Rosie Pink Package is a lasting reminder of hope and comfort.
