Child’s Play Charity is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of young people receiving medical care or in domestic abuse shelters through the power of video games. They have recently been named the first official charity of PAX, the largest and most popular games convention in North America. Child’s Play has already given away more than $3 million to hospitals and youth facilities in 2018 alone. In addition to allowing these facilities to buy games and other equipment, they have also funded Gaming & Technology Specialist positions around the country.
This helps hospitals provide the skilled personnel they need to have access to the latest developments in the field. Child’s Play Charity was also awarded the 2018 Impact Donor Of The Year award by Child Life Disaster Relief for the money they provided to provide relief during Hurricane Harvey.
