100% of donations to Motion for Kids goes to provide an annual Holiday Party for St. Louis area children in the foster care system, or those whose lives have been severely impacted by the criminal justice system. Annually, approximately 3,000 children are served. The event is co-sponsored and organized by the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis and the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome.
Children are matched up with sponsors from the St. Louis legal community (lawyers, judges, paralegals, office administrators, law students and legal secretaries). Each sponsor is asked to purchase and wrap two gifts (totaling $25) chosen from the child’s wish list and to stuff a stocking. Gifts are distributed during the party, to which the children and their families are invited. Holiday Party activities include: Photos and autographs with Rams players and cheerleaders, arts & crafts stations, games, a book corner, a Santa station (with photos with Santa, a North Pole office and candy), refreshments, live entertainment and on-field games.
