What is Play it Forward?
SimplyFun’s annual 'Play it Forward' campaign takes place every February. It’s a month long special opportunity for game party hosts
to donate a pack of games to local, non-profit organizations as a part of their selling rewards. Generating ways to bring more PLAY into the lives of children and families everywhere is one of SimplyFun’s core objectives. It not only underscores the Play it Forward movement, but it represents the passion and commitment SimplyFun has to help children at every skill level develop their unique gifts using the power of play
2022 Play it Forward Results
The results are in! SimplyFun’s 2022 Play it Forward campaign donated approximately 800 games valued at $20,000 to more than 80 non-profit organizations. The recipients range from elementary school classrooms and youth programs to children’s hospitals and missions. In addition to the 80+ host-selected organizations, the campaign efforts also support SimplyFun’s 2022 giving partners. Toys for Tots
, My Stuff Bags
, and this year’s special partner, Rising Star Elementary
will all benefit.
The SimplyFun Playologists
and their party hosts are to thank for this generous gifting! Eligible parties in February generated a pack of games that the host could award to a non-profit of their choice. Through a matching challenge, SimplyFun doubled the amount to reach a total donation retail value of $20,000.
A Message of Gratitude
“At Rising Star Elementary, we are excited to revamp our ‘Rainy Day Recess’ games with SimplyFun,” said Hannah Katz, City Year Manager at Rising Star Elementary. “Our fifth-grade students will select the recess games, and our teachers will also have an opportunity to select games for their classrooms. In addition, because of the generous donations, we are able to support our after-school Gaming Club with exciting new games. Lastly, we will utilize these donated games to distribute to families and students as prizes for family events in years to come.”
