Our Mission

Our mission at Toys for Simcha 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!

About Us

Toys for Simcha brings joy to seriously ill children in hospitals in Israel. This brilliant yet simple campaign transforms a scary time to one of hope. A child’s outlook changes when they realize that others care for them and hope for their speedy recovery.

Every smile is a blessing!
