About the cause
Founded in 2007, GameChanger Charity was started by Jim Carol after witnessing the impact video games had on his son Taylor during a 5-year battle with leukemia. GameChanger’s mission is to leverage technology and innovation to ease the pain and suffering of children facing life-threatening illnesses. GameChanger focuses on improving quality of life by delivering meaningful services directly to patients and staff in hospitals, awarding financial aid and college scholarships, gifting thoughtful packages of video games and toys, and hosting unique gaming events for patients, like Gamers Give Back Days. Powered by the generosity of people like you, GameChanger processes over 100 tons of donated goods annually, hosts online gaming events with celebrities, launches custom digital eCommerce campaigns and has brightened the lives of over 20,000 patients, family members and caregivers.
