The GameChanger crew and special guests created a day to remember for staff and patients at Methodist Children’s Hospital in San Antonio!
We’re off to a successful start in 2018!
Along with Hope The Monkey Plushies and other fun toys, we brought along today’s top gaming stations that included 3 Xbox consoles and a PS4 with a VR set up. All of which we set up in an open floor area of the hospital allowing any patient or sibling who wanted to play the opportunity to do so.
Patients and their families were able to choose from a variety of games including Fusion Frenzy, Injustice, NBA Playgrounds, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Minecraft, Driveclub, and Madden 2018!
To say we had our choice of games is an understatement! Thanks to Xbox for donating the one-month Game Passcodes!! Thanks to their amazing donation, all patients were able to choose from hundreds of titles.
Due to the staff and patients playing it safe and taking extra precaution around the flu season, we were expecting a low turn out of children that would be able to leave their rooms. These are the standards we respect and take very seriously at GameChanger. That said, even if we are able to give one or two patients a fun experience then it’s all worth it.
Overall we had a great turnout as 15 kids came out to play games and enjoy themselves with many of them staying for the entire length of the event!
That’s not all! This time around we had some amazing influencers in attendance.
ParkerGames, Shubble, JeromeASF, StacyPlays, and GraffixG were all with us to spread some smiles and enjoy the afternoon with the kids!
Everyone involved was amazing and respectful of the space and the families who were in attendance.
A big thanks goes out to all of our special guests and the Child Life staff at Methodist Children’s Hospital. Your commitment to help out and be present makes the GameChanger Play Day events a reality and is incredibly important to us.
Play Days are celebratory days filled with gaming, tech, and special guest influencers. None of our efforts would be possible if not for the partnerships with companies like Xbox and other partners who donate gaming goods and toys for the children.
