Goodie Mags is based on the idea that you want to show someone you care when they’re in the hospital and I absolutely didn’t want you to be limited to sending flowers. There weren’t any alternatives to sending flowers, so I created Goodie Mags.
I also wanted to set-up partnerships with local organizations in places that the business is connected to. So far, we’ve announced a partnership in New York City (where we are located), Grand Rapids, Michigan (where one of the founders is from) and now we’re happy to announce a partnership in the Twin Cities!
The idea for this company came to me when my father was in the hospital last year in Minnesota and I could only send him flowers (I live in New York). I was frustrated and ended up sending him nothing, when I really wanted to send him magazines and a Sudoku book while he was bored in the hospital.
Goodie Mags is pleased to announce that we are partnering with the Ronald McDonald House of the Upper Midwest in the Twin Cities. You can now donate to the kids through Goodie Mags to the house.
As an extension of our own mission, we have puzzle books packs that you can send to the kids at the Ronald McDonald House in the Twin Cities. Sending entertainment options allows the organization to focus their budget dollars on other critical aspects. We are so excited about this partnership!
Three books come in the puzzle pack for the kids. We’re offering the pack at $24.99 and delivery is free!
Just go to our website and click the donate. Choose the organization you'd like to donate to. You order and donate. We take care of the rest. Delivery is included and there are no shipping charges.

A few weeks ago, I volunteered at one of the public hospitals in New York helping kids make exploding, awesome volcanoes. The kids ranged in age from 2nd graders to 5th graders. There are older kids too but they do different activities with volunteers. The kids are in the hospital for varying lengths of time and for varying reasons but they are all excited to see people who care. I couldn’t help but think that when I left that there was something that Goodie Mags could do to support the children who are at the hospital, especially for the kids who are there for an extended period of time.
