Mission Statement

Promote well-being and positive spirits through video games and other electronic media.

Description

In 2009, a close friend of ours was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenuous Leukemia, a form of cancer that required an extensive stay in a local children's hospital. With the inability to walk or even stand, his activity was limited. His only escape from the stark reality he faced was plugging in his PS2 and escaping to a world with more adventure than his.

Gamers Gift is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization created by high school students that aim to use video games and other electronic media to alleviate some of the psychological stress caused by prolonged hospital stays, loneliness, poverty, or any other unfortunate circumstances one might face.

We make reoccuring visits to local children's hospitals and assisted living facilities with technology, namely virtual reality. Our visits allow individuals to experience adventures they may have been without.
