This week, our Twitch hosts had the opportunity to tour the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Here, they saw firsthand how the support of our generous and loving community during the Extra Life charity drive contributed to the development and sustainability of the hospital’s facilities.
Favorite Moment: We are led outside to a playground where our tour guide, Sara, demonstrates the fun and thoughtful equipment built for the children of the hospital. After admiring the low-built structures (accommodating of those in wheelchairs) and the ergonomic padding underfoot, Taliesin Jaffe and Erika Ishii bolt into the park, laughing and playing right alongside the kids.
Along our tour, we also learned the giving doesn’t have to be in cash form. Have some video games and board games sitting on the shelf? The hospital has libraries, playrooms, and recreation areas for kids of all ages. They happily accept donations of board games and video games (PS3, PS4, Xbox). Read more about how to donate here!
And if you’re looking to donate to a charity on behalf of a loved one for the holiday season, continue the goodwill by making a contribution to Geek & Sundry’s Extra Life page. All proceeds go directly to the children’s hospitals, plus it’s tax deductible.
Thanks so much to our amazing community for making one of the biggest Extra Life donations yet!
