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 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.
