Child's play seeks to improve the in-hospital


Started on the internet by the video and tabletop gaming community, childs play seeks to improve the in-hospital experiences of children in need through placement and donations of game consoles and other forms of electronic and non-electronic entertainment through a network of over 100 hospitals worldwide. Although our fundraising occurs throughout the year, the primary effort is focused during the holiday months, including a 478 person charity dinner and live auction in seattle, washington.

Reviews for CHILDS PLAY

Rating: 5 stars  

I searched for a charity where I could donate gifts for sick children for Christmas. It was Christmas and I didn't want to donate money to a hospital or for research. I wanted to help children and their parents to have a Christmas. The only website I could find to do this was Child's Play. I am not a gamer. I had never seen their website before. But, I appreciate what they do for these children and their families, as well as what they allow me to participate in.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the fact that I have been able to send toys to children's hospitals is the only way I have experienced the results of this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get the website more publicity outside the gaming world. Get it on news stations; stories about the kids getting the toys. I think there are more people out there that want to participate in something like this and do not know how.

I've donated here since the very first year. This charity raises well over $1.5 million a year now all to send games and entertainment materials to children's hospitals throughout the world. And they do so with essentially no overhead.


I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Donating, and later when my son was hospitalized at the Detroit Children's Hospital.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to add more hospitals to their list and see if it was possible to spread the word about their charity even farther abroad.
