Child’s Play Gamers’ Charity had a record year in 2010 raising $2,294,317, bringing the lifetime total raised to $8,998,564 with donations of toys, games, movies and books for sick children in hospitals worldwide.
“Just because we’ve surpassed our goal this year doesn’t mean we’re going to slow down, in fact we are planning to expand so we can help even more children next year,” explains Kristin Lindsay, Foundation Coordinator, Child’s Play.
While the focus of Child’s Play is to deliver gifts for the holidays, the charity recognizes the need for year round support. The hospital wish lists remain online at Amazon and the foundation will continue to accept donations through PayPal during the course of the year. In addition to hospitals in the U.S., gamers contributing to Child’s Play serve hospitals in the U.K, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Egypt.
Congratulations Child’s Play and all who contributed! Keep up the good work and continue to make the world a better place.
