Support Sick Kids Worldwide

One of the Members on my favourite gaming website, The Northern Resistance, posted a link to a website that is just simply amazing.

Child’s Play is a charity that allows site visitors to purchase video games through Amazon.com and Amazon.ca, or donate money via Paypal, for Children’s Hospitals all over the world.  From their website:

“Since 2003, over 100,000 gamers worldwide have banded together through Child’s Play, a community based charity grown and nurtured from the game culture and industry. Over 5 million dollars in donations of toys, games, books and cash for sick kids in children’s hospitals across North America and the world have been collected since our inception.

This year, we have continued expanding across the country and the globe. With almost 70 partner hospitals and more arriving every month, you can be sure to find one from the map above that needs your help! You can choose to purchase requested items from their online retailer wish lists, or make a cash donation that helps out Child’s Play hospitals everywhere. Any items purchased through Amazon will be shipped directly to your hospital of choice, so please be sure to select their shipping address rather than your own.

When gamers give back, it makes a difference!”

I must say that after visiting this website, you cannot argue that these guys have come up with a fantastic idea that will make a child’s hospital stay a little more comfortable.  As a father of two children, you feel terrible when they’re not feeling well, and I could not imagine how I would feel if would they ever need to have an extended stay in a hospital.

I wholeheartedly endorse this website, and ask everybody who is able to add one more child to their Christmas list this year to please consider donating to this charity.
