K’NEX Brands, the only US construction toy company focused on Building Worlds Kids Love ®, is proud to announce that for the sixth year in a row it will donate a percentage of online sales to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Now through April 30th 10% of all online sales made on www.knex.com will be donated to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. Donations are accepted with or without making a purchase.
“We are honored to be able to help this tremendous organization,” said Michael Araten, K’NEX President & CEO. “With over 1.4 million people, including over 150,000 children, suffering from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, we are thrilled to provide funds for vital research and education programs.”
In addition, a team of K’NEX employees will be participating in the Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis walk in Philadelphia. These incredible events take place at 158 walk sites across the country, where thousands of people gather every spring and summer to join the fight against digestive diseases.
