Ladies and Gentlemen we'd like to take a moment to make a few announcements for 2016!

First and foremost we'd like to welcome Chris Parker of Obsidian Entertainment, Alvin Nelson of Giant Sparrow Studios, Cameron Carenen of AT&T and re-welcoming Cory Zaruba of Get-Well Gamers to our board of directors. The team brings over 40 years combined management, production, business development and technical experience to the organization and with their guidance we hope to continue our ongoing mission of providing electronic entertainment to children's hospitals across North America.

Next on the list we have a full year planned of fundraisers and events to help keep the charity going strong. Enjoy bowling? We got that. 24-Hour Twitch streams with video game industry veterans? We got that. How about a night out with an amazing meal and silent auctions? It's all coming together. In between our main events, we will have an events calendar on the new website where you can put together your own fundraising events to help drive donations to support our cause.

Thank you all so much for an amazing 15 years so far, help us make 2016 our most amazing year yet!

Donate Video Games to a Good Cause!

Welcome to the official homepage of The Get-Well Gamers Foundation!

The Get-Well Gamers Foundation was founded in 2001 with the goal of bringing video game systems and games to children's hospitals. Video games are an effective and proven pain management tool and provide needed entertainment during long hospital stays.

The Foundation currently serves hundreds of children's hospitals worldwide in an ever-expanding donation network that has already brought much-needed entertainment to over a million children each year. The Foundation services all kinds of hospitals, from small local facilities to larger regional medical centers. Although some of these hospitals are on the cutting edge of medical research, all too often their pediatrics units are lacking for entertainment options. The Foundation seeks to fill these gaps by providing hospitals with free video games, systems, and accessories.

The Get-Well Gamers Foundation is dedicated to providing for children's hospitals year-round, supplying everything from classic video game systems to brand new next-generation systems to hospitals around the world.
