ChildFund International opened its exhibit of toys “The Power to Play – from Trash to Treasure” at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles on Sunday. ChildFund President and CEO Anne Lynam Goddard and former sponsored child Shauntay Hinton spoke at the standing-room only event.

Children learned first hand how to make hand made toys using some of the same materials that children in ChildFund programs use to make toys.

Shauntay, a former Miss USA and now a host on the Fine Living Channel, spoke about how ChildFund allowed her to gain confidence. Anne spoke about the resiliency of children.

The exhibit runs through Dec. 31. If you live in the L.A. area or will be visiting the area before the end of the year, please stop by the Museum of Tolerance to visit “The Power to Play.”
