Help us bring games to children in hospitals

By Spencer . May 1, 2006 . 10:32am

This month we’re teaming up with Get Well Gamers to bring video game goodies to kids in hospitals. We are taking all our proceeds from running Auto Assault ads and using the cash to buy new gaming gear for Get Well Gamers. You can help us out, just check out Auto Assault from this link or the banner on the right hand side of the page. Each click helps raise money towards the fund. We’re running this until May 21st, so we are going to ask all of our readers to help spread the word about this. Last time around we were able to get a bunch of toys to give out on the holiday season. Let’s do even better this time around.

Why are we doing this?

If playing a new video game can put a smile on the face of a child recovering in a hospital it makes us happy too. Video games are used by many hospitals to reduce children’s anxiety their stay. Unfortunately, not all hospitals have up to date equipment and we’d like to help out.
