Everything Gamerosity does is centered around empowering children and letting them know how special they are. It's what drives Gamerosity to be something special for children with cancer. We want every child in that hospital bed to know that, even in their tough days, they're valued, thought of, and loved by a community of compassionate individuals. We want to reconnect children to a childhood that circumstances have robbed. Our mission is to change the treatment experience for children with cancer and this project will help us execute that mission in an immersive way.
Gamerosity is seeking $10,000 to develop a program that will Gamify the treatment experience through positivity, activity, and connectivity. We want to connect patients and parents to one another through diagnosis, proximity, and age to lift one another up, provide advice, and challenge one another to win each day, together. With this program, we'll provide inclusively, encouragement, and incentives to hospitalized children to live an active, healthy, and nutritional life while in treatment.
This can be a HUGE tool for parents and patients, something that is totally lacking and is truly a game changer. But we need your help.
The $10,000 grant would be used to:
YOU can join us as we support Gamerosity's efforts to BE THE CHANGE they want to see in the lives of children battling cancer!
Creating awareness, creates CHANGE!
In 2012, we launched our “Be the Change” initiative. This web-based program allows our supporters to nominate the areas where they want to see change occur in the lives of children and injured action sports athletes. Then our entire network can vote for the cause they’d not only like to see win, but will support. We love that our supporters now have a voice and a platform that help guide our fundraising and giving. The Sheckler Foundation will come along side the winner giving them a $10,000 grant and help make their plans a reality!
Our goal through "Be the Change" is to create awareness for all 4 finalists by using our global platform to share their story. The voting and rallying is NOT for the sake of competition. We could choose a "winner" other ways. The voting and rallying is intended to create a ground swell of support for each of our 4 finalists, showing what can happen when we activate our community to get involved with causes that matter.
