Lizzie’s Loot is a program of Team Lizzie Bell that brings joy to several thousand kids every year through donations of pediatric medical equipment, gift cards, and toys. To a child coping with a chronic, life threatening medical condition, the hospital becomes a second home with frequent visits required for treatment. Through Lizzie’s Loot children who must regularly cope with uncomfortable procedures have something to look forward to.
Young children look forward to selecting brand new toys; tweens and teens choose from a variety of gift cards after their treatments.
Lizzie’s Loot provides toys to over 800 children per month!
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Local businesses, schools, churches, youth groups, scout troops, organizations and individuals can do their part by collecting and donating new toys for Lizzie’s Loot. Each month we need a partner to raise toys for Lizzie’s Loot. The month following the drive, we invite the partners that contributed to the campaign to join us in the delivery of the toys to UAMC Diamond Children’s Medical Center and to be part of our exciting, heartwarming delivery day!

History of the Toy Box:
When Jimmy Busey was one year old, his dad David Busey made him a toy box. For years, it was just a plain, unfinished box that was never painted. After Jimmy died at age six (nearly seven), Kathy and David Droege, also bereaved parents, had the idea to use a toy box in the 3rd floor clinic at University Medical Center, Tucson. Jimmy's toy box was placed in the clinic in late 1993. David Busey painted it bright yellow, Jimmy's favorite color. Then it was taken to a monthly Candlelighters' meeting for all the children to put their handprints on it. An engraved plaque was added later.
“Last time I was at a hospital there were no toys at all. There was a little boy that got a BIG NEEDLE and was promised a toy. So after he got poked he goes to the Toy Box and starts crying, NO TOYS. I did not know what to do. The look on his face is still in my head. So please if you can, donate a toy or two - TODAY. Thank you.” - Lizzie Bell
Lizzie Bell of the John P. Bell Family Foundation created the “Lizzie's Loot" toy box campaign and is dedicated to keeping the toy box full.
