“I’m a gamer, a nerd, and most importantly I am a mom of a little girl named Alayna who is all of the above as well. See she is 3years old, and I found your page on instagram, and it made my heart melt. Main reason being that Alayna, my beautiful daughter is battling leukemia. She is in the hospital every week for treatment, we drive an hour and a half one way two times a week for her chemotherapy. And at the end of every long drive she looks forward to coming home and playing, mostly Xbox tiger game as she calls it. What you guys do is absolutely amazing, and I just wanted to say thank you. There are not a lot of people like you, and it makes me smile seeing how much some people really do care. So yeah that’s what I wanted to say, thank you. Keep up the good work! And one last time thank you.”
Jimmy Weller started the idea of Charity Gaming in 2011. His father, George, passed away from lung cancer in 1994. It was a crippling disease that left a strong man to wither away in a hospital bed. Working at healthcare facilities his entire life, Jimmy saw the struggles that extremely sick children faced. Bed stricken, hooked up to IV fluids and constantly in pain is not way for a child to spend what may be their final days. Jimmy made it Charity Gaming’s mission to give children a chance to feel like a child again and not a patient by providing them games, books and toys to bring a smile to their little faces.
With the help of his amazing friends, they host video game marathons online to raise money for these terminally ill children. Please help us continue to make sure that these children are happy during this horrible time in their lives by donating to our cause.
