The Gamers Give Back Tour is a partnership between GameChanger & Child's Play during which the charities will be hosting events at hospitals around the country in celebration of how games, thoughtful gifts & stories of hope can make an impact on the lives of patients, families & staff in children's hospitals!
Each Gamers Give Back Day is an uplifting, love-filled celebration that brings smiles, hope & lasting memories to every hospital visited. Events include a variety of activities ie distributing delicious catered meals, delivering age-appropriate gifts to patients in their hospital beds, and personally interacting with inspiring young individuals ultimately resulting in a truly life-changing, eye-opening experience for all!
The events are made incredibly special by honoring the entire hospital staff (ie nurses, doctors, child-life, custodians) and showering them with gifts + thank you cards for the thankless work they do. The goals & outcomes desired for the Gamers Give Back Tour can be best summarized by a quote from CHOC Children’s Child Life/Special Programs Coordinator Amber Chavez, “It was the best day ever and you gave these patients, families and staff a day they will never forget! I hope to do another event with GameChanger charity & Child's Play because you truly make a difference :)“.
