For ChildFund International, our toy exhibit – “The Power to Play – from Trash to Treasure” – is more than just a display of creative toys. It embodies the essential qualities of children, qualities that have been the foundation of our work for 70 years.

On Aug. 6, our traveling toy exhibit was officially launched at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Joining ChildFund President and CEO Anne Lynam Goddard in the celebration were Helen Thomas, dean of the White House Press Corps and renowned journalist, and Myron Belkind, chair of the International Correspondents Committee of the National Press Club.

Here are highlights from the celebration:
