Our mission at Toys for Hospitalized Children is to bring happiness and healing to children suffering from illness.
We gift toys accompanied by hope and encouragement to assist children and teens enduring some of the most difficult challenges of their lives.
Because - Happy Kids Heal Faster!
Why A Toy?
To a sick child, a toy is much more than just a gift—it’s a gesture of love. It uplifts fragile spirits and boosts morale. Studies show that positivity can trigger self-healing superpowers. Happy kids heal faster!
Toys for Hospitalized Children brings happiness and healing to children suffering from illness. This brilliant yet simple campaign transforms a scary time to one of hope. A child’s outlook changes as they realize that others care for them and hope for their speedy recovery.
Every smile is a blessing!

Rabbi Jacob J. Hecht O.B.M.
In 1953, Rabbi Hecht visited a Jewish boy in the hospital. He noticed a Nun giving toys to the Christian children and skipping all the non-Christian children. Seeing the sadness in the boy’s eyes, he ran to the nearest toy store and bought a big red firetruck. He came back and presented the gift to the boy. The boy smiled from ear to ear, and Rabbi Hecht knew he did the right thing. Immediately he decided to create Toys for Hospitalized Children, a non-denominational charity to bring happiness and healing to all sick children no matter their race, religion, ethnicity, background, or social standing.
