The phrase “that’s just child’s play” does not apply to this nonprofit. Child’s Play Charity is a game industry charity that is responsible for more than just fun and games. Supported by corporate sponsors from the gaming world, this charity’s mission is to give children in the hospital joy, hope, and distraction from their circumstances. The toys and games Child’s Play collects and purchases are donated to hospitalized children around the world. Using personalized Amazon wish lists created by the children and hospital staff, Child’s Play can give children the toys, video games, books, and gifts that they desire. This organization also donates items annually to each hospital in its network. Instead of stopping there, Child’s Play goes even further to provide games and entertainment for children staying at domestic violence shelters. Cash donations are also accepted by Child’s Play, and they are used to fund consoles, games, and other fun items for use at hospital facilities as a shared game center. With Child’s Play, hospitalized children get to participate in valuable social interactions. Child’s Play gives children the chance to be what they are wherever they are: kids.
Your contributions directly impact the lives of children in hospitals & shelters. Child's Play seeks to improve the lives of children in hospitals and domestic violence shelters through the generosity and kindness of the video game industry and the power of play.
