The Hope Chest for Breast Cancer's mission is to help under-served or financially distressed individauls and their families touched by breast cancer. The Hope Chest was founded in 2001. Celebrating our 10 year anniversary in 2011 & marks a milestone of providing $1,000,000 in support to breast cancer patients and their families in the Twin Cities area. Hope Chest’s guiding philosophy is to ensure that our funding is disbursed in our community to provide the most effective support to those directly touched by breast cancer at a time when they need hope.

The Hope Chest's programs provide:

Financial assistance for rent, utilities, transportation and other needs to those who are having financial difficulties or are unable to work due to the side effects of breast cancer treatment. 
"Delivered Meals that Heal" for breast cancer patients and their families so that they can get the essential nourishment that their bodies need during treatment. 



Smile Network International is a Minnesota-based non-profit, humanitarian organization that provides free life-altering reconstructive surgeries to impoverished children and adults in developing countries.
In a timespan of just 45 minutes and for $500, Smile Network International can provide a happier, healthier future and the gift of a new smile. 
Since 2003, Smile Network has operated on more than 2,600 patients, completed nearly 60 missions in nine countries at 24 surgical sites.  
Smile Network works with teams of medical and non-medical volunteers and could not provide these life-altering surgeries without the generosity of our partners and donors.    We are obsessively prudent with our donor’s gifts.  The America Institute of Philanthropy rates as highly efficient an organization that spends 75% or more of its total expenses on charitable programs.  We are proud to report that according to our audited financial statements that Smile Network currently spends 89% on our program services
