Seeking Some Early “Happy Holiday” Cheer for Kids Wish Network’s Special Children and Teens

Posted in Press Releases on September 25th, 2009

Holiday, FL –  Kids Wish Network, a nationally recognized 501 (c) 3 organization that serves children with life-threatening illnesses, is desperate for your help! We are in need of donations of toys and games for children of all ages: from infants to teenagers. However, sadly, our teenagers are often neglected in our efforts! It is extremely challenging for us to gather donations geared towards kids between the ages of 12 and 18! With the economic climate of the country today, it’s becoming harder and harder to find donations at all, let alone ones that fit our kids needs. We are understanding of this difficulty, but the children still need our help; without your assistance, we cannot give these kids the joy they so deserve during their times of need.

 

We work hard each and every day to bring joy to some very courageous kids through our wish granting services and our gift giving programs. Our wish granting services were created to fulfill the wishes of children who may never have the chance to experience something amazing like this again, while our gift giving programs distribute thousands of dollars worth of toys and games to children within hospitals and child care facilities across the country. Because of the difficult economic times, more and more people are flooding into homeless and abuse shelters, many bringing their children, who have little to make them smile. This is where Kids Wish Network works best, bringing happiness to the lives of these kids.  

 

In order to bring joy to these very deserving children, we rely on the generosity of toy manufacturers and companies nationwide to donate their products to be given to these children. It has been proven that these toys help alleviate fears and anxieties by allowing children to temporarily forget about the pain and fear often accompanying scary and uncertain circumstances.
We do our best to fill our wish boxes and to stock teen rooms at hospitals and children’s care facilities across the country with items appealing to teens, but it is very difficult as we are seriously lacking in items for them.
At this time, we are desperately seeking any of the following items for our teens: electronic hand held games, game system games for all game systems, DVD’s for older kids (G-rated), listening devices including iPods and MP3 players and books for teens. We are also more than happy to receive donations of toys, games, books and electronics for younger kids as well!
If your company manufactures or distributes any of these products, please contact Kids Wish Network’s Distribution Center. Any help would be tremendously appreciatedKids Wish Network is happy to announce that all donated items will be shipped via free freight. For more information, please call (727) 937-3600 or toll free at (888) 918-9004.
Please join Kids Wish Network’s family of “Guardian Angels’! Together, we can all make a difference in the lives of some very special and courageous kids!
