Scifidimensions announce their first annual Sci-Fi Santa campaign. Chartitytastic, mate.
The online science fiction magazine scifidimensions has just announced the kick-off of their first annual Sci-Fi Santa campaign, the proceeds from which will benefit the kids staying at 'Children's Healthcare of Atlanta' over the 2003 holiday season.
Sci-Fi Santa encourages science fiction fans to donate toys appropriate for children from infants up to 21 years of age. Monetary donations will also be accepted; all proceeds will be converted into gifts - scifidimensions will absorb any administrative costs, so every penny helps the kids.
"Sci-Fi Santa enables science fiction fans convert their enthusiasm for the genre into something productive," says John C. Snider, editor of scifidimensions.
"I can't think of anything worse than being a sick kid in the hospital during the holidays. Their families have enough on their minds and I'm sure their budgets are tight without having to worry about shopping for presents. Sci-Fi Santa is intended to help ease that burden."
The Sci-Fi Santa campaign runs from November 1st through December 15th, 2003. Checks or money orders should be made out to "John C. Snider, Editor" with a note that the money is for Sci-Fi Santa.
Toys and money should be mailed to:
410 Roswell Farms Road
GA 30075 USA
Children's Healthcare of Atlanta(r) (CHOA) (http://www.choa.org) AIMS to enhance the lives of children through patient care, research and education. It was formed in 1998 when Egleston Children's Health Care System and Scottish Rite Children's Medical Center merged.
