US: Ravensburger launches Puzzles Fund the Cure Design Contest with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation

Ravensburger has partnered with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation to help piece together a cure for childhood cancer with the launch of the Puzzles Fund the Cure Design Contest.

Running until January, 31st this year, the contest encourages children and teens to create a design that inspires hope. Ten of these designs will then be turned into limited edition puzzles, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s mission to find the best treatments.

“We’re thrilled to support the NPCF in its mission to end childhood cancer. Our products shape the lives of children, and through this contest, we hope that we can help to improve the chances of younger fighters nationwide,” said Filip Franke, CEO of Ravensburger North America.

The Puzzles Fund the Cure Design Contest encourages children and teens ages 18 and under to use their artistic skills to help impact the lives of young cancer fighters across the US. Contestants are being challenged to create a piece of art they believe inspires hope, while including both the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s sun logo and a puzzle piece shape.

In 2020, Ravensburger North America selected the NPCF as its official charity partner, making a significant donation to help fund its research trials. Ravensburger is dedicated to helping NPCF by using its craft – jigsaw puzzles – to continue supporting cancer research and the families who need NPCF’s help.

Each day, 43 children are diagnosed with pediatric cancer across the nation, and each year over 17,000 families in the US are affected by this disease – with pediatric cancer leading as the number one cause of death by disease among children.

NPCF works to fight cancer with 29 open research trials, many of which are yielding significant results.
