Gaming to grant wishes

Gaming to grant wishes

When the world feels dark and difficult, online gaming can be a light in the darkness; providing relief and respite in a world where anything is possible.

For children and young people living with a critical condition the world can feel like a very dark place indeed, as the joy of childhood is brought to an abrupt end with treatment plans, hospital appointments and worry taking over.

Digital gaming allows children to escape the everyday realities of their condition, bringing entertainment, connection and achievement into their lives. A growing number of our wishes are gaming focused, and we know these gaming related wishes have a hugely positive impact on improving a young person’s mental health at a time when they need it the most.

We’re asking the gaming community, developers and streamers to come together to help raise money to grant life-changing wishes. Together we have the power to light up the darkness for critically ill children.
