Donate Old Watches for a Great Cause!



Thanks to the efforts of Senior Editor Paul Moliken, Prestwick House is partnering with a unique non-profit charity called Kids Time.

The founder of Kids Time, retired physician Murray Moliken, takes donated wall clocks, old watches, and stickers to local elementary schools, Boys and Girls Clubs, and Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops. Here, kids are able to help create fun, interesting clocks for donation to less fortunate, hospital-bound children.

Over 3,500 clocks have already been given to ill children, who light up and smile broadly when they realize that the gift came directly from youngsters their own age. Clocks have been distributed to children's hospitals from Florida to California.

Unfortunately, in recent years wrist watches have become more difficult to come by. Over 40,000 watches have been used so far in the process of creating these clocks, and we need your help to keep the project going!

Almost everyone has broken, old, unwanted, cheap, discarded, unused watches in a drawer somewhere that they’ll never use.



Simply send them to the address listed below to help further a good cause.
 
Edit: 10/15/15 - Unfortunately Kid's Time is no longer accepting donations at this time.

Hello,
Are you still accepting used watches for Kids Time?
Thank you for any additional information.

Hello there all,

Yes, we are still accepting watch donations at the address given in the blog post. Feel free to mail them in when you have a moment!

I'm currently looking into the website issue. I'm having some trouble finding a link to Kids Time that actually works, but if I succeed I'll fix the links in the post.

Thanks, everyone!
