I've got a question on this, so I might as well CC it here. It's about tax deductible donations, and this is from the Child's Play site:
"Each hospital's charity tax ID number is included in the information section on its wish list. Use your confirmation email as a receipt. If you are making a cash donation, Child's Play's own tax ID number is 20-3584556. If you have any questions about how this works, please ask your tax advisor."
In short, since this is a cash drive...probably yeah, it's tax deductible.
I can confirm that it is tax deductible (in Canada as well IIRC), from information I recall from the Desert Bus charity drive. I am unsure of other countries (such as the UK), but I'm sure it is fine. As mentioned in the quote above, especially if you live out of the United States, talk to a tax advisor if you wish to include your donation as a tax deduction. If you do, please make sure you have proof of your donation in the case of an audit.
