Carrington and Friends is the brain child of now 12 year-old 7th grader Carrington Craig. At the age of 4, Carrington while visiting a sick Aunt in the hospital during the Christmas season witnessed a child being brought in to the emergency room and inquired, "will Santa visit these children in the hospital for Christmas?" When the response came that Santa possibly would not come because the parents were more concerned with the children being healthy and that would be the greatest gift to that family, Carrington was displeased with that notion.

Carrington's solution was to ask all friends and family who were gathering to celebrate the holiday season at her home, to bring one toy per family for donations to children in the local hospital who would not celebrate Christmas at home with their families. Carrington delivered the toys on Christmas Eve and the rest is herstory. Her goal is to provide at least 20,000 toys to children each holiday season nationwide...she is well on her way. In December of 2015 and December of 2016, Carrington was featured on Fox 59 News - Indianapolis, IN for her toy drive efforts. The event was sponsored by Jason's Deli - Carmel, IN and Dunkin Donuts - Carmel, IN. Carrington's hope is that others will join and support this initiative. In 2017, Carrington appeared on local NBC affiliate WTHR-13, ABC affiliate RTV-6, and local radio station 95.5fm with Steve Stuart.  

2020 promises to be an amazing year as Carrington and Friends celebrates milestone year "8”! With the support of friends, family and local contributing sponsors Massage Heights, Hoi Tea Toi Tea Teahouse, and the New You Salon, Carrington and Friends will bring joy and cheer to hospitalized children and their families. AND...donations to this endeavor are now tax deductible as Carrington & Friends Foundation has acquired 501(c)(3) status!!!! ALLdonations benefit these children and their families. 

In 2019, Carrington branched out with the launch of the Carrington Craig Scholarship fund winter of 2019.  Carrington's goal is to gift 2 middle school students who like her were born premature and are interested in STEM with a scholarship of $1000. 

In 2019 your generous donations benefited this drive of which we are thankful and pray you are touched again this year to support this effort.
