On Friday, our Makers Making Change team hosted our BC Solutions team for a build event, making switches and adapting toys. It was a great team building event, and best of all, the toys will go to local kids with disabilities as part of our #HackingForTheHolidays campaign.

#HackingForTheHolidays 2023: Making Play Accessible for Everyone

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.
