5 Years!

It has been 5 years since we started Project Pinball Charity.

It is an amazing journey that life has given us. It has been 5 years since Project Pinball Charity began this journey to help families across the United States through our love of pinball. We support countless lives through our charity’s efforts that would take years to discuss the full impact, so we will keep it brief to give you the simplified update.

We have successfully placed twenty-two pinball machines in our Children’s Hospitals from the west coast to the east coast of the United States. We have another five pinball machine dedications, for a December Winter Campaign that we will be announced shortly, raising that total to twenty-six placed.

We don’t only place pinball machines but we actively support, maintain and provide children’s programs with these machines to keep our hospital partners happy. Our hospital community is quickly understanding the exciting therapeutic benefits our charity’s program presents. We developed a program that helps supports families in hospital settings that could use what a pinball machine is designed to offer.

We had a mission statement that has been followed from day one to guide us to our goals along this epic journey to establish a system that will last for years to come. What we do today will have positive lasting effects on these lives through their association with pinball.

All of this was through the help and support of our good friends across our globe- yes. I said, globe. Our charity’s supporters are world-wide which I can only feel truly blessed as I write this.

We would like thank all of our founding partners that helped start our charity’s journey. We were blessed to know Little Shop of Games- Curly has been our there from the first days to help assist and be there when we needed a father voice to guide our ambitions. We would not have started on our path if it was not for the generous nature of Gary Stern of Stern Pinball. Gary and his close associates provided everything that was needed to help us in our infancy to find the legs to walk forward. Marc, Nancy and Paul Mandletort of Marco Specialties have been a huge supporter of our charity’s efforts through this entire time. Matt Barlow has to be mention because he never is that person to sound his own trumpet.

Thank you to our numerous donors, patrons, supporters, followers, well wishers, ambassadors, sponsors, volunteers, community leaders, pinball people and friends that are too many to list individual names. We love you all! Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving and giving life to those in need.

As a charity we do this full time to get things done and our results speak volumes! We take what we do serous because of the impact our charity on the lives of children and their families. With your continued help and support we will continue to grow to help and support these families in our special way. Please, when it comes to giving back, it would mean the world to us if you remember us as a strong charity that you would like to help reach more and more families for the years to come.

We look forward to our journey ahead…. for many, many more years!
