Christy and John J. Mack hosted
a holiday cocktail at their home for Fairplay (formerly
CCFC). The evening’s host committee included Mack Abbot,
Kathleen Lauster, Ellie Manko Libby, John C. Mack, Melanie
Manko, Debra Peltz and Charlotte Pilaro. The
intimate evening raised over $400,000 to support their
mission advocating a childhood beyond brands.
Executive director Josh Golin explained how Fairplay is
committed to helping children thrive in an increasingly
commercialized, screen-obsessed culture, and the only
organization dedicated to ending marketing to children. A
truly independent voice for children, Fairplay’s advocacy
is grounded in overwhelming evidence that child-targeted
marketing – and the excessive screen time it encourages –
undermines kids’ healthy development. Since its founding by Dr.
Susan Linn in 2000, Fairplay has grown from a
small group of concerned parents, health professionals, and
educators into a powerful force for children and families.
Working closely with policymakers, health and child
development experts, and nearly 40,000 members, Fairplay is
bringing to life a new vision of childhood. Fairplay does
not accept donations from Big Tech or any corporation.
