About Child’s Play
In 2003 Child’s Play was organized, which is a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing toys and games in the charity’s 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.
The term “record-setting” doesn’t do the final total justice, nor does incredible, amazing, generous, or overwhelming. In 2012, Child’s Play Charity raised over 5 million dollars for children across the globe.
With events and a record number of community-run fundraisers, Child’s Play as a group are able to raise an astonishing amount to benefit kids in hospitals, clinics, and domestic violence shelters worldwide. Each of these events requires thousands of volunteers, organizers, and participants, each working long hours, weekend after weekend, to ensure everything is in working order.
