38,000 toys collected during East Coast Radio’s Toy Story with Game 2013 campaign


(East Coast Radio and Game Team Members) 

Once upon a time, tens of thousands of children in KZN, would’ve faced an unhappy end-of-year holiday season. Children in hospitals, children who have no idea where their next good meal is coming from, children with no parents and no adult supervision. Thanks to the help of the people of KZN, East Coast Radio’s Toy Story with Game has managed to make a difference.
Some 38,000 toys have been collected since the campaign was launched at the end of October. During this period, east coasters helped raise around R1.3 million which went towards buying food parcels for the underprivileged.
Nearly 40 hours have been spent on road trips as our teams visited hospitals around the province and the Red Cross Air Mercy Service helped deliver toys and food parcels to areas our wheels couldn’t take us. In total, children in 55 hospitals in KZN benefitted from our Toy Story 2013 campaign.
East Coast Radio’s Toy Story with Game wrapped up on Thursday, 18 December 2013 with the Toy Story Cavalcade which took the teams to Addington, King Edward, RK Khan and Prince Mshiyeni Hospitals.
We’d like to convey our heartfelt thanks to each and every person in KZN who helped us help make a difference. You have brought a smile and even hope to thousands of children in our province. Thank you.

I witnessed first hand the joy on each child as they received a toy.  Quite amazing.  I managed to ask ECR DJ Peter G what he thought of Toy Story? 'When you see the joy in the eyes of the child when you deliver the toys it makes it all worth it' said Peter G.
