Child’s Play Raises $7.6 Million in 2013
Record high for charity organization.
Child’s Play has seen a successful run since starting in 2003 but the past year has arguably been it’s most successful year yet. In 2013, it raised $7.6 million along with other health organisations the world over.
The official site states that, “$7.6 million. It’s absolutely mind boggling. Ten years ago, we wouldn’t have believed it possible. That’s more than the cumulative total for the first six years of Child’s Play, raised in the last 12 months.
“Not only have you been able to support our growing network of hospitals, but we’re also been able to expand our initiatives and benefit children in domestic violence shelters. In 2014 that program will move past the pilot program to encompass facilities across the country and provide them with vital resources to support the kids they see every day.”
Child’s Play has managed to raise a strong total of $25,196,670 in the past ten years and the new year seems like it will be even bigger. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming months.
