Current corporate partners
Through financial and in-kind donations, our corporate partners help create a positive experience for patients and families by enhancing a child's emotional well-being while at a children's hospital. Thank you to our partners for the ongoing and generous support of children's hospitals.
American Girl Brands, LLC, a subsidiary of Mattel, devotes its business to celebrating the potential of girls ages 3 to 12. American Girl encourages girls to dream, grow, aspire, create and imagine through a wide range of engaging and insightful books, age-appropriate and educational dolls and accessories. Through holiday campaigns and philanthropic giving, American Girl's annual donation of American Girl Dolls brings comfort and cheer to thousands of children receiving care in many of CHA's U.S.-based members.
Brave Barbie, a hairless doll, was created by Mattel in response to a public campaign for the company to produce a special doll as a positive role model for children experiencing hair loss. Brave Barbie is not sold in retail stores but is distributed exclusively by Mattel through CHA, Cure Search and the National Alopecia Areata Foundation. To date, CHA has distributed more than 13,000 dolls to patients in children's hospitals nationwide.
Mattel toy donation program
Partnering with charitable organizations dedicated to directly serving children, Mattel Children's Foundation supports healthy play through product donations.
Play is essential to children's health and eases stress in hospitalized patients. "Spread Joy with Toys," is a social media campaign where the general public nominates children's hospitals to receive free shipments of Mattel and Fisher-Price toys. Through this program, Mattel distributes thousands of toys to children's hospitals annually.
The Toy Foundation
The Toy Foundation is a nonprofit children's charitable organization that works with the toy industry to provide support through play opportunities to children across the country.
The Toy Foundation Play Grant Program awarded $398,000 to 18 children's hospitals for play projects. View grantees and projects.
By making play more accessible in children's hospitals, these grants will strengthen the social, emotional, physical, and behavioral development of children.
