Kids Wish Network, a 501 (c) 3 organization that serves children with life-threatening illnesses, is in desperate need of donations of 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.

Through its gift giving Holiday of Hope Gift Bank program, Kids Wish Network 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.

If your company manufactures or distributes any dolls or toy cars and you would like to make a donation, please contact Kids Wish Network’s Distribution Center. All donated items will be shipped via free freight within the United States. For more information on Kids Wish Network, visit, or call (727) 937-3600; toll free at (888) 918-9004.
