Founded by Little Black Book: Women in Business in 2013, BrrrBASH has grown into a large scale collaborative toy and money collection to benefit Toys for Tots. Little Black Book (LBB) is a community of female professionals committed to professional and personal development in a collaborative, non-competitive environment. We strive to grow our network and community through service and charity.
The 2020 LBB BrrrBASH to Benefit Toys for Tots will be kicking off its eighth annual toy drive on November 1st when collection boxes are put into the market and concludes December 12th with a collection celebration from 6-11 pm at Foundry Art Centre in historic St. Charles. Little Black Book partners with over 100 local businesses over four counties, the cities of Wentzville, Lake St Louis, O'Fallon and St Peters, numerous Fire Protection Districts in St Charles County to actively collect toys for the charity.
Since 2013, Little Black Book has donated over 29,500 toys to the Foundation. All of the toys donated will be distributed in the Greater St Louis area.
For the past three years, the LBB BrrrBASH to Benefit Toys for Tots has accounted for 20% of the total number of toys distributed by the US Marines to happy children at Christmas. We are proud to know that LBB is the third larget donor in the greater St Louis region, and St Louis is the third largest collection in the United States.
The public is invited to drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any of the participating locations between November 1 - December 9. Help LBB bring Christmas to children in need!
As the BrrrBASH continues to serve the need of less fortunate children in our area by donating over 22,000 toys over the past six years, it will begin to serve our local charities as well. In 2019 $10,000 was donated to We Love St Charles, a local charities dedicated to mentoring impoverished families, individuals, and at-risk youth through family support and intervention, homelessness prevention, and job training.
LBB is now accepting applications for the 2020 BrrrBASH Beneficiary. Non-profit organizations connected to the women of Little Black Book are invited to apply by July 15, 2020. The BrrrBASH Celebration is scheduled for December 12, 2020.
