On Giving Tuesday (Dec 3rd) , Amazon will be celebrating GameChanger and its tireless efforts over the last 12 years with a massive quarter million dollar donation. This donation, along with access to cutting edge technology from AWS, will allow GameChanger to create and transform dedicated gaming rooms in hospitals across the world.
To help amplify this important moment, several of GameChanger’s amazing advocates (CaptainSparklez, Rooster Teeth, and UCI Esports) will be hosting Giving Tuesday charity streams to help drive awareness and donations from their communities. Thanks to our friends at Omaze, a 2020 Jaguar I-PACE SE with $20K in the trunk will also be up for grabs to one lucky donor.
The following night in Las Vegas (Dec 4th) , AWS Public Sector will be hosting its annual invite-only party at Drai’s NightClub where GameChanger will be honored with a VIP couch gaming area. This is an awesome chance for us to bring our amazing community of advocates together for some couch gaming, drinks, and celebration. AWS has built a special section for each of our Giving Tuesday teams. Meet top execs from Amazon, AWS, and their biggest customers. This will be super fun, and is intended to honor the contributions of our advocates.
Dec 4th in Las Vegas: Description: AWS will be putting together “couch gaming” setups to honor GameChanger and our community of gamer advocates. Gaming setups will feature Nintendo Switch and Pro Controllers with Smash Bros Ultimate, Mario Kart, and Minecraft. Please let us know if there are other titles we should include
Prize: Win a 2020 Jaguar I-PACE SE with $20K cash in the trunk.
Donations for the Omaze campaign will remain open into 2020, but we want Dec 3rd to represent a major call to action for this campaign. We hope to drive participation from each of the 3 live streams on Dec 3rd, as well as in-person donations from attendees of the AWS reInvent conference where we will have significant signage and information available.
