We did this post on this awesome charity back in December. We wanted to just repost it as a way to bring it back to people’s attention.
Please help if you can.
We at Confident Gamers believe that every Child should get a chance to Play.
During the VGAs on Saturday, an organization called Child’s Play was mentioned and donations were being taken. I had a chance to research the charity to see what they were all about and it was so touching.
Here is The Deal about Child’s play:
Since 2003, we’ve set up and organized Child’s Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 70 hospitals worldwide. Over the years, you as a community have answered the call and come together to raise millions of dollars.
Child’s Play works in two ways. With the help of hospital staff, we set up gift wish lists full of video games, toys, books, and other fun stuff for kids. By clicking on a hospital location on our map, you can view that hospital’s wish list and send a gift.
Child’s Play also receives cash donations throughout the year. With those cash donations, we purchase new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities. These donations allow for children to enjoy age-appropriate entertainment, interact with their peers, friends, and family, and can provide vital distraction from an otherwise generally unpleasant experience.
Please take a short break from you time and check them out. If you can help with any donations please do or please spread the word about this awesome organization.
