Bringing Hope to Mississippi: Kids Wish Network is in Desperate Need of Toys, Games, Baby Blankets and Other Necessities for Children in Crisis

Posted in Press Releases on May 26th, 2011

Holiday, FL –  Kids Wish Network needs all sorts of items suitable for children and families in need for their upcoming Kids Wish Network On Tour event in tornado ravaged Mississippi.

Kids Wish Network On Tour is a program that was designed to bring “miles of smiles” through the joy of toys and gifts to children nationwide who are facing difficult circumstances relating to abuse, homelessness and neglect. By partnering with local city officials, Kids Wish Network On Tour is able to reach out to children who might be unreachable otherwise.

In July, Kids Wish Network On Tour is heading to Yazoo City, Mississippi to help bring joy back into the lives of children who have faced overwhelming circumstances and whose families are suffering from the aftereffects of the recent tornadoes and floods that have devastated the area.

In order to do this, Kids Wish Network needs the immediate help of manufacturers and distributors of all kinds of toys, games, books, educational products, children’s clothing, baby blankets and other much-needed necessities, as we are in desperate need of them. 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.

These items are delivered directly into the hands of the children and families who need them most.

In order to bring joy to these very deserving children, we rely on the generosity of 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, while the needed necessities such as baby blankets or children’s clothing will help relieve the stresses and burdens caused by the recent devastation in the areas surrounding Yazoo City, Mississippi.

Together we can truly make a difference.
If your company manufactures or distributes any toys, games, books, educational products, children’s clothing, baby blankets and other much-needed necessities, 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.

Help Them to Play: Kids Wish Network is in Desperate Need of Plush Toys for Children in Crisis

Posted in Press Releases on May 12th, 2011

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 plush toys!

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 plush toys. Despite the demand for high-tech gadgets, plush toys 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. A “hug” from a plush toy can also provide a much-needed element of comfort to a child.

Probably because of their worldwide appeal to children of all ages and situations, there is always a high demand for these classic plush 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 Banks and our brand new Kids Wish Network On Tour program. These two programs distribute hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of toys and games directly into the hands of children across the country who are dealing with life-altering circumstances such as illnesses, abuse, neglect and homelessness; 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. Right now, we at Kids Wish Network are hard at work trying to secure enough donations of these toys for several upcoming events that are sure to bring “miles of smiles” to thousands of children in need:

  • Kids Wish Network on Tour in Yazoo City , MS on July 23rd
  • Kids Wish Network on Tour in Los Angeles , CA on August 20th
  • Kids Wish Network on Tour in Madisonville , TN on October 1st
  • CSX Santa Train on November 19th

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 plush toys, please contact Kids Wish Network’s Distribution Center.
