Child's Play Charity kicks off fundraising drive

The 2011 donation campaign has began, urging gamers to play and donate money for a good cause

Posted on
Child’s Play Charity has officially begun its 2011 fundraising campaign, having already received more than $450,000. This year’s goal is to raise $2 million.

Since the charity’s establishment in 2003, it has distributed more than $9 million in donations from the videogame community to entertain hospitalized children across the globe.

The annual Child’s Play charity auction will take place on Thursday, Dec. 8th, 2011 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. Tickets can be purchased at
www.childsplaycharity.org. Passes will cost $145 per person and $5,000 for table sponsors.

We are very excited to begin another year of Child’s Play and once again show the world that the video game community is altruistic as well as compassionate,” said Kristin Lindsay, Child's Play. “Since Child’s Play inception we have constantly been surprised by the generosity in both time and money of the community.”

Those wishing to contribute to Child’s Play can host a fundraising event, buy or donate an item on the Child’s Play eBay Giving Works page, give directly via PayPal, or text the keyword GAMERS to 50555 to make a $5 donation.
