Adapted Toys Open a Whole New World for Laurence

Through our #HackingForTheHolidays campaign, Laurence received a switch-adapted toy cat, as well as a variety of switches she could use. Laurence especially loves that the toy cat has two switches and she can decide whether to make it walk or meow.

Hacking for the Holidays

September 25, 2023

Last year, we raised $28,000 and delivered over 600 toys and 900 switches to children with disabilities across Canada. For 2023, we are shooting even higher. With a fundraising goal of $100,000, we are aiming to build 2,000 toys, switches, and video game joysticks, host over 100 events across all 10 provinces, and make sure that play is accessible to all kids with disabilities this holiday season.
