In early December, I had the opportunity to attend the Gamer’s United holiday party, an event aimed to help raise funds so kids stuck in hospital beds can enjoy video games while they recoup. A fabulous cause!
More about Gamers United:
“Originally conceptualized in 2008, Gamers United is an organization bringing the video gaming community and industry together, showcasing the positive aspects of video gaming to the world. Each year we help organizations, such as children’s hospitals, in need of support. Many hospitals now use video gaming as a rehabilitative tool. Other organizations use it as a method of entertainment for those who are unable to leave the confines of their home or hospital bed. Gamers United is dedicated to giving back and highlighting the video gamer’s youthful and giving spirit. We are proving the pixelated heart is a philanthropic one.”
