“True collaboration requires dedication and time to develop relationships, time for ideas to come together, and time for trust and vision to organically develop. The moment this happens is almost like a bolt of electricity streaming through the room, it is truly magic.
This has been the AllPlay journey over the past two years. Alone, as researchers, clinicians, business leaders, sitting in silos we can make small steps towards improving the lives of children and their families. But working together, we can make giant steps forward that have a measurable impact on society. Without the generosity of our partners and donors, AllPlay would not be delivering the positive community impact that it is today. So our deepest thanks to Moose Toys for changing lives.”

“Moose and The Humour Foundation share a unique relationship. Both truly believe their reason for being is to make children happy!
The Clown Doctors & Moose first met in 2010 and since then have become firm friends bringing fun and laughter to sick children in 24 hospital around Australia. Their enduring partnership is shown by their mutual understanding, trust and respect for each other and love for the children they help daily.
Moose’s generous support has enabled the Clown Doctors to expand their visits in hospitals in Australian suburban areas, Rural and Remote regions and to Indigenous Communities to demonstrate that ‘Laughter is the Best Medicine.’
The Clown Doctors are proud to have a partner like Moose who demonstrates constant commitment to the principals of Clown Doctoring by international support of programs in Israel, the USA and Australia.”

“The generosity of Moose Toys has made an incredible difference to, not only patients and their families at Monash Children’s Hospital, but also to visitors and staff. As one of our biggest supporters Moose has helped promote healing and well-being through the sharing of moments of joy. We are very grateful for the ongoing partnership and the difference that partnership will continue to make for children and their families while they fight for better health.”

“The Dream Doctors Project began in in 2002 with the aim of empowering hospitalized children during their most difficult moments. Our mission is to help every child find their strength and smile again, even when it hurts. During our journey we had the privilege of meeting The Moose Toys Family, who had the exact same agenda! Immediately we became one big family, working hard every day to put the children in the centre of their treatment, by supporting professional training for medical clowns and increasing their presence in the hospitals.
What Moose knows how to do best is take a project one step further, and a fantastic example of this was opening the Dream Doctors Humanitarian Fund to support our disaster reliefs missions abroad. Because of the generous sponsorship of the Moose Foundation, we are able to work in disaster zones all over the world and provide a special intervention for children that allows them to better deal with their trauma.
Moose Toys also saw the importance of building an evidence base for the medical clowns’ work and supported the establishment of Dream Doctors’ research fund.”

Refugee & Asylum Seeker Toy Drive
“Moose Toy’s donation of toys last year was very generous and quite amazing! Gifting toys to so many of the refugee and asylum seeker children of Victoria allowed such vulnerable children, so accustomed to hardship, to play, be free and have fun.
To witness firsthand the effect that our mutually run, end-of-year event, had on these families was an utter privilege. Together with a dedicated team of Moose Toys volunteers, including one who dressed up as Santa! We really helped to enhance a sense of community, break down barriers of social isolation and instill faith and hope.
Together we achieved something truly beautiful, that simply wouldn’t have happened without Moose Toy’s kindness. From the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of the thousands of children who received a toy, thank you.”
