CoasterRadio Launches a Charity for Theme Park Fans
Mike Collins from the popular CoasterRadio podcast sent me some information about a great charity that he’s set up for theme park fans. Here’s more about the program:
Theme Park Change encourages amusement park fans to give up one thing they would normally enjoy during a trip to the park and donate the cost of that item to a worthy cause. For instance, someone might give up a funnel cake and donate $5. Someone else might give up a day at the park and donate the $50 cost of their ticket.
Anyone donating $10 or more through Theme Park Change has a chance to win one of dozens of exciting prizes donated by the amusement park industry. Prizes include tickets to Walt Disney World, Sea World and actual props from their favorite theme park attractions.
Here’s a video describing Theme Park Change featuring Neil Patrick Harris:
Proceeds go to Project Angel Food who’s mission is to: “nourish the body and spirit of men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses.”
I think most of us can spare a little to help out others and I applaud Theme Park Change by putting donations in context for theme park fans. This sounds like a great charity and its one that speaks directly to us.

This sounds like a pretty cool charity to me? What do you think? Leave a comment below.
