What a Success! Kids Wish Network Gives Thanks for their Network of “Guardian Angels” at the 2010 International Toy Fair in New YorkPosted in Press Releases on February 26th, 2010
HOLIDAY, Fla. – Kids Wish Network, a nationally recognized 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for suffering children, had the chance to extend its appreciation to their many wonderful donors at the International Toy Fair in New York this past week.
This was Kids Wish Network’s 8th year attending the International Toy Fair, held in New York’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, and we were more than excited. Once there, we set up our booth, which was donated to us once again by Toy Industry Association. For this amazing generosity, we were pleased to present the TIA’s president, Carter Keithley, with a plaque to show our appreciation.
Throughout the four exciting and busy days of the toy fair, we met with and were able to give our personal thanks and “lucky” Guardian Angel coins to the many companies and people who have donated their products and services to us over the past year. These donations help make our mission possible and have helped us reach thousands of children through our Gift Bank program, which provides toys and gifts to children in the care of pediatric facilities nationwide.
Our representatives were also able to meet many new contacts in the amazing world of toys. It is heartwarming and exciting when people express an interest in helping us help the kids.
In addition to giving thanks to past donors and meeting new contacts, our Kids Wish Network crew was also able to witness the introduction of many new and exciting products to the international toy market in a bright and bustling environment. We couldn’t believe all the wonderful items we saw that would be absolutely perfect for the playrooms in the hospitals we serve!
Our time at the International Toy Fair was a wonderful 4 days and a true success. Thank you to all who helped make it possible.
