We did it! Despite itchy faces and complaints from some of our significant others, the ChoreMonster team hit our goal of raising 2,000 bucks for the great charity Child’s Play. We started back in October, all with freshly shaved mugs and high hopes. Nearly two months later, our goal was achieved.
So thank you to everyone that gave a few bucks towards this excellent cause, and of course, it’s never too late to support Child’s Play or the charity of your choice during this season of giving.
Child’s Play works in two ways. With the help of hospital staff, we set up gift wish lists full of video games, toys, books, and other fun stuff for kids. By clicking on a hospital location on our map, you can view that hospital’s wish list and send a gift.
Child’s Play also receives cash donations throughout the year. With those cash donations, we purchase new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities. These donations allow for children to enjoy age-appropriate entertainment, interact with their peers, friends, and family, and can provide vital distraction from an otherwise generally unpleasant experience.
