The 2023 Party with a Purpose was a tremendous success, exceeding previous years. Community support and commitment was key in the event’s ability to raise over $50,000. Generous donors have made it possible to expand the organization’s positive impact through gift giving, reaching over 400 children this holiday season and providing educational support for students in the Oakland schools the group has adopted.

Twelve Days of Christmas, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) organization created in 1999 with one simple mission: “To share our blessings with others through collective effort, charitable activities, and community involvement.” They have committed to remembering the true spirit of Christmas throughout the year by making a difference through the gift of giving to Oakland children and families.

As it embarks on its 23rd season in Oakland, they are committed to making 2023 more profound and impactful than ever! Most of the proceeds (ticket sales, donations, and sponsorships) will provide gifts and necessities to the families that they serve, and they have recently added improving childhood literacy to their fundraising goals. Eight (8) out of ten (10) Black and brown children in Oakland are unable to read at grade level. They plan to use some of their funds this year to purchase books and other necessities for grade school children.
