Long Beach to Salt Lake City Trip Starts February 14
The 2023 edition of GameChanger’s “Road Trip For Good” has begun. This multi-city, multi-stop campaign was originally revealed and completed back in 2021 (from San Diego to Seattle) during a time when hospitalized children were more isolated than ever. The goal of the road trip is to raise awareness of GameChanger and bring hope, joy, and happiness to sick children who are being treated with debilitating illnesses. The decision to bring it back in 2023 was an easy one. We find it be a powerful and fun way to do what GameChanger does best: deliver goodies and games to sick kids.
This time, GameChanger Charity founder, Jim Carol, will visit a total of six cities and six hospitals. He will begin his ten day, thousand-mile long journey on Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) in Long Beach, CA where he will make his first drop-off. He will stay in California to drop off in Mission Viejo then Orange. After, he will head up the Interstate 15 and fourteen hours later will arrive in Utah. GameChanger will visit three more cities in Utah such as Saint George and Orem. He will then head to the capital of Utah, Salt Lake City, to make his final visit on February 24 to end the trip.
Over $60,000 Worth of Goods to be Donated
Over the course of the trip, GameChanger will be donating approximately $60,000 total worth of Minecraft clothing, toys, and merchandise. Thank you to Microsoft and Mojang for the donations! Alongside the Minecraft goodies, we will be giving over 3,000 video games to the hospitals, courtesy of EA. Gifts will go directly to the hospitals and the many sick children that are isolated inside of them. Jim will be picking up these goodies during his trip.
For those interested in adding more to the amount of goodies, GameChanger is always accepting monetary and item donations. To find out more on how you can donate to GameChanger and improve this trip (and many more), click here.
