Child’s Play, the charity raising funds for hospitals and other health organisations around the world has raised a record $7.6 million in 2013.

A post on the Child’s Play charity site reads, “$7.6 million. It’s absolutely mind boggling. Ten years ago, we wouldn’t have believed it possible. That’s more than the cumulative total for the first six years of Child’s Play, raised in the last 12 months.

“Not only have you been able to support our growing network of hospitals, but we’re also been able to expand our initiatives and benefit children in domestic violence shelters. In 2014 that program will move past the pilot program to encompass facilities across the country and provide them with vital resources to support the kids they see every day.”

Child’s Play turned ten in 2013, and since forming in 2003 has raised a total of $25,196,670.
