Update August 27: The charity event ended August 26, 2018 at 11:59 PM PST. Thanks to your support, together we were able to raise $34,304.37 for Child’s Play!
As the Overwatch League All-Star players go head-to-head this weekend, we hope you’ll join us in funneling that energy and excitement towards an important cause: supporting children’s hospitals. 100% of your Cheers this weekend on /OverwatchLeague and regional channels will support Child’s Play*, a charity that provides games, toys, and electronic entertainment to over 160 Children’s Hospitals worldwide and 100 domestic violence shelters across the US. Through the support of the community, Child’s Play is able to have an impact on the lives of over 1 million children per year.
About Child’s Play
Since 2003, Child’s Play set up and organized numerous game industry events dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in their network of over 160 hospitals worldwide. They have funded eight gaming and technology specialists in the hospital whose job is to be on the cutting edge of therapeutic gaming, bringing VR and AR bedside, and educating on how to use games as a part of the healing process. They have worked closely with EEDAR to develop a Therapeutic Video Game Guide that helps explain how games like Overwatch can be used as a way to help the healing process.
