Help Them to Play: Kids Wish Network is in Desperate Need of Dolls and Toy Cars for Children in Crisis

Posted in Press Releases on June 25th, 2010

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 dolls and toy cars!

After working with children in crisis for over 12 years, we at Kids Wish Network have found that children truly love to play with classic toys, especially dolls and toy cars. Despite the demand for high-tech gadgets, dolls and toy cars remain on the top of the list of the most desirable toys.
Playing with a toy is a calming and relaxing activity for kids who are suffering from illnesses, distressed while dealing with harsh circumstances like homelessness or trying to cope with other traumatic situations such as abuse.

Probably because of their worldwide appeal to children of all ages and situations, toy cars and dolls are some of the hardest products to secure in donations; there is always a high demand for these classic toys. Without the assistance of the manufacturers and distributors of these items, we cannot give these kids the joy they so deserve during their times of need.

We work hard each and every day, all year round to bring joy to some very courageous kids through our gift giving Holiday of Hope Gift Bank program. This program distributes thousands of dollars worth of toys and games directly to children within approximately 150 hospitals and child care facilities per year across the country; there are no middle men involved.

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 toys help alleviate fears and anxieties by allowing children to temporarily forget about the pain and fear often accompanying scary and uncertain circumstances.

If your company manufactures or distributes any dolls or toy cars, please contact Kids Wish Network’s Distribution Center. Any help would be tremendously appreciated

Kids Wish Network is happy to announce that all donated items will be shipped via free freight within the United States. 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!
