Childs Play Charity

post #1 of 3

Since 2003, gamers have banded together through registered Seattle-based charity, Child's Play. Over a million dollars in donations of toys, games, books and cash for sick kids in children's hospitals across North America and the world have been collected since our inception.

We collect no administrative fees or other charges, 100% of all gifts and donations go directly to our partner hospitals, to help make life a little brighter for a sick child.

This year, we have continued expanding across the country and the globe. With over 25 partner hospitals and more arriving every month, you can be sure to find one from the map above that needs your help! You can choose to purchase requested items from their online retailer wish lists, or make a cash donation that helps out Child's Play hospitals everywhere. Any items purchased through Amazon or DStore will be shipped directly to your hospital of choice, please be sure to select their shipping address rather than your own.

When gamers give back, it makes a difference!

And it's in no way affiliated with evil dolls that come to life

Me being an avid gamer, I was a little touched by this paticular charity, and though it may not belong in the news section or might have been posted already ( I ran a search and didn't find anything) I thought I'd throw caution to the wind. With the popularity of folding on this forum I figured I'd spread the word. But bear in mind you don't need to be a gamer to donate anyway.

You might want to rename this to "Child's Play Charity" or "Childs Play Charity" (Is the apostrophe correct in this phrase? )

The "www.childsplarcharity.org" looks a little weird.

P.S. Thanks for informing us (me?); I like to help out anyone when I get a chance.
