We’re chasing down a $350,000 fundraising goal at Gamers for Giving 2018!
Gamers Outreach is a charity that provides recreation to children in hospitals through the power of video games and the gaming community. As an organization, our intent is to help inspire and heal patients through interactive play. For the past decade, we’ve been visiting healthcare facilities across the U.S., working to ensure games and technology are accessible for patients, and manageable for healthcare professionals.
Hospitalization can often be a lonely, isolating, and scary experience – especially for young people. We’ve seen it firsthand, and we’re doing everything we can to ease those burdens.
We’ve become most known for constructing these things called “GO Karts” (Gamers Outreach Karts). GO Karts are portable, medical-grade video game kiosks deployed inside hospitals. Each cart is equipped with a gaming console, monitor, and assortment of games. The kiosks are mobile and fully secure, enabling medical staff to easily provide children with access to bedside activities.
Here’s how you can get involved:
Whether you’re streaming from home, or joining us at the EMU Convocation Center, we look forward to having you be a part of this year’s efforts! We’ll see you on April 28th & 29th!
