About Us

Who We Are

' height=208Remember your favorite toy
when you were a kid…

Whether you’re a fan, collector, or an everyday citizen - memories of that special plaything can still transport us back to the fun, fantasy and escape of playtime. The adventures we took with our favorite super heroes and princesses developed our imaginations, lifted our spirits, and inspired us to be better people. However, the devastating effects of serious illnesses and the economy have robbed many children of this joy. Collectors Care wants to make that hopeful experience available to every child, regardless of their financial or medical situation.

Fans of comic books, movies and television shows have a unique appreciation for a toy’s positive impact, and regularly show their passion and caring through donations, toy drives and character appearances. With the support of this community, Collectors Care will demonstrate their great philanthropic power by making character appearances and distributing toys to needy and sick children throughout the United States. We hope you’ll join us in our mission, and change a child’s life for the better!
