Nearly 10 years ago, gamers from around the world united to help kids at Seattle Children’s Hospital have a brighter holiday. Today, over 90 facilities worldwide benefit from the support of Child’s Play, and that number only grows. Every addition to our network and every gift that ends up in a hospitalized child’s hands is thanks to you, our incredible supporters. We couldn’t be more proud to kick off the 10th year of the Child’s Play holiday drive, and we’re thrilled to announce that the community has already raised $970,000 for sick kids. It’s an inspiring way to start the season, and we’re deeply grateful for the many game marathons, bake sales, Humble Bundle purchases, and more that make up that incredible starting point.
Our facility wishlists are freshly filled and ready to send gifts of video games, toys, books, movies, and more directly to hospitals in our network. Check out our map to find a facility near you. If you don’t see a hospital nearby and have a suggestion of a local nonprofit pediatric facility, send it over to Kristin ([email protected]).
We’ve also announced our Annual Dinner and Auction to be held at the Meydenbauer Center on December 5th, 2013. In celebration of our 10th Anniversary, this year we will be hosting a post-dinner cocktail hour, featuring live music by the Doubleclicks. We are also welcoming our friends Scott Kurtz and Kris Straub as hosts and auctioneers for the evening. Every year the industry and community amazes us with their creative, unique, geeky donations, and we can’t wait to show you what we have in store for the auction this year. Get your individual tickets here, or your corporate sponsored tables here. If you would like to donate an item or have any questions about the auction, email Jamie ([email protected]).
