General: Child's Play Breaks 1 Million Mark

SzarkSzark News ManagerMember Posts: 4,420

Child's Play, the charity that provides toys and games to sick kids, has announced that they raised more that 1 million dollars in their most recent fundraising drive.

Not only did we break the million dollar mark, but we decimated it with our new total of $1,135,000! This significant achievement made this holiday season a happier, brighter one in our fifty partner hospitals. To everyone who has contributed to this amazing milestone, thank you!

The hospital wish lists are still online, and some have seen new items added. While we try to get lots of new games and more to the children in time for the holidays, the hospitals have a need for equipment year-round. Likewise, we will continue to accept donations through Amazon, PayPal and the mail until next year’s fundraiser kicks off.

Keep your eye out for one final update in January- best wishes from us for a Happy New Year!

    Nice, especially since I know I contributed (if even a minor one) to breaking the 1 million mark.

    That is great! Its nice to see that gamers, commonly demonized by the media, have such big hearts.
