The Statewide Buckets of Sunshine Project allows a non-profit organization to have a commitment from MNWT to collaborate with them on promoting their cause. In return, the awarded organization will promise to promote MNWT to it's members and contributors. MNWT will offer support through fundraising events, helping create community awareness, and assisting in other opportunities to benefit the organization. This is the MNWT version of the United States Women of Today's Buckets of Sunshine. As of November 2019, the Marketing Committee voted to use the MNWT Priority Area as its Statewide Buckets of Sunshine Project going forward. The Priority Area SPM and the Marketing Committee has been working together to ensure this is successful starting in 2020-2021!
The Statewide Buckets of Sunshine Project Subcommittee is charged with locating an annual fundraising event for the chosen organization that will benefit from our organization's efforts. In the past, we have donated monetary and gift items to organizations such as: Sweet Dreams for Kids, Shriner's Hospital, Emerge Mother Academy, Cheerful Givers, Mary's Place, the Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women, Project Linus, MN Milk Bank for Babies, and Operation Minnesota Nice.
Crescent Cove offers care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life-expectancy, and their families who love them. The Crescent Cove Respite & Hospice Home for Kids opened May 2018 on Twin Lakes in Brooklyn Center, MN. It is a vibrant and joyful home-away-from home for kids with life-threatening conditions, where each moment is embraced and celebrated. The home is utilized for short breaks of rest, or an option beyond the hospital or home environment for compassionate, end-of-life care. All services and stays provided at Crescent Cove to kids and families are at no out-of-pocket cost thanks to the generosity of donors who make this possible.
Wishes & More began in 2004 in order to fill the gaps of other wish-granting charities serving children with terminal and life-threatening conditions. The founders were seasoned children’s wish granters who had served as volunteer members of the board of Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota. Wishes & More grants wishes for infants and children with a life threatening or terminal illness to the age of 19. Wishes are often related to hunting, fishing, sports and other outdoor activities. Families can be supported with a Scholarship of Hope ($2000) or financial relief to families that lose their child before their wish could be experienced.
