Goal reached: $2.2 million raised!

Happy Holidays, everyone! We have some very exciting news. Thanks to our wonderful community events, our annual dinner auction, support from our corporate sponsors and gamers around the world, we have reached our 2011 goal of $2,000,000! Not only did we meet it, but we crushed it by over $200,000 with a few weeks left of our drive! Thanks to you, kids all over the world will have to think a little bit less about being sick and get to think a little bit more about being a kid.

As our hospital network grows, so has your generosity.The consoles, games, toys and books every year are met with profound thanks from the hospitals we benefit, and it’s all because of the kindness of the gaming community. Every day we read stories of how Child’s Play impacts actual lives, and I’d like to encourage you to take a minute and read about how these donations help kids and families through the scary, painful, and overwhelming experience of illness and hospitalization.

It goes without saying, but we’re on track yet again to surpass our previous year’s $2.3 million record. There’s still time to make a donation and brighten the holidays for a sick child. Donate through Paypal, choose an item from a wishlist on Amazon, or simply pick up your phone and text to donate $5- each and every contribution makes a profound impact.
