The Alex's Merry Minions 2020 holiday toy giveaway is now on!

Do you or someone you know need assistance providing toys for their children for Christmas this year? Then we can help! See details below!

 Alex's Merry Minions Toy Giveaway

From Alex's Merry Minions:

Over the last four years Alex’s Merry Minions has aided many families in need.   We have provided numerous families each year with everything from toys, meals, coats, grocery gift cards, and more. We have been able to do this solely through the support of private donations from our friends (aka the Merry Minions) and the generosity of Dr. Benjamin Cho at Dentistry for Children & Adults Too! Unfortunately, it has become more difficult to serve the growing population of those in need during the holidays with every passing year. Last year there were many families in need who we were unable to help despite our tireless efforts, but we keep trying!

For the 2020 holiday toy giveaway, Alex’s Merry Minions will be giving out Ty Beanie Babies to all the families who need toys until our supply is exhausted. I have 150+ Beanie Babies that will be given out to children in need this holiday season!  

How families in need can get their Beanie Baby: 

Any families in Santa Clara County needing help providing a toy for their child/children can apply using the contact information found at the bottom of this Charitable Giving page below at

Use the email found at the bottom of this page to send the names and ages of the children in need in order to be considered to receive a Ty Beanie Baby.  All the selected families will be notified by email, or phone if provided, during the month of November.  The selected families will need to be able to pick up their Beanie Baby at the office of Dentistry for Children & Adults Too! in Milpitas starting in November. 

It is our hope that we can reach many families whose children will not have much, if anything, for Christmas. If we can bring joy and a smile to at least one child then the Minions will be Merry! 

And as always, many thanks to all of those who supported the Alex’s Merry Minion families over the last four years.   ❤️

Alex's Merry Minions was created in honor of Alex Matlosz-Cox whose generosity while battling terminal cancer inspired others and changed the lives of many. We continue this effort in his honor to foster the spirit of giving and to bring a little magic, joy, and peace to those in need during the holiday season. We hope that this giving spirit is contagious and you will join us in our Minion Merriment!

Thank you, Bobbie Cox
