GameChanger to Direct Donations to Hawaii, Pledges 100 Years of Gaming
As many of you are aware, the core of GameChanger’s mission has always been to support children, families, and caregivers through the power of gaming and tech. In light of the recent wildfires in Hawaii, GameChanger is extending its reach to provide crucial support to those in need during these tough times.
The fires in Hawaii have brought widespread devastation, which is significantly impacting the lives of countless children and families, leaving many hospitalized, without homes, or with loved ones. Our hearts go out to those affected, and we are determined to do everything in our power to help.
Throughout the past sixteen years, we have witnessed firsthand the incredible impact gaming can have on children’s well-being, serving as an important source of comfort, distraction, and joy during challenging times. In light of the situation in Maui and on the Big Island, we have made the decision to direct all donations received this week (8/13 to 8/20) towards supporting the children, families, and caregivers impacted by this disaster.
On top of directing donations, we have pledged 100 years of gaming to Kapiolani Medical Center through the form of Xbox Ultimate Game Passes. Thanks to Xbox, these Game Passes will allow patients to game through the cloud on any device they are provided with, allowing for access to 100s of premium gaming titles right from their hospital bed.
Hospital and Donation Information
The Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children, located in Honolulu, is Hawaii’s only specialty care facility for women and children, and is committed to serving all islands. According to sources, many of those affected by the tragedy in Maui and Big Island are being transported to The Kapiolani Medical Center.
Donations made to GameChanger this week will bring gaming, books, clothes, toys, and other items to hospitalized children, their families, and caregivers. Donations will help cover shipping/packing costs, and will go toward providing as many goodies as possible for children to enjoy. Every three people that donate $40 will ship a box of games, clothes, books, toys, and other goodies to kids at Kapiolani Medical Center. We ask for your support so that we can send as many items as possible, as fast as possible, to as many children as possible.
