Over the past few years, we’ve frequently received emails from supporters across the country who’ve wanted a deeper, more long-term involvement with Gamers Outreach programs.
Today, we’re excited to unveil a new tool to help our supporters do just that. We’re proud to launch the 1.0 version of the Gamers Outreach fundraising platform!
Through the new Fundraising section of our website, anyone who wants to support Gamers Outreach programs can create a custom fundraising page, track donations, and rally friends and family to support a long-term goal!
Here’s the best part: if you raise enough to build a GO Kart, we’ll deliver it in your name to a hospital of your choice! You’ll even be able to see photos from the delivery, and pending availability, visit the hospital to learn how the GO Kart will be serving patients and staff! Your donation will also be showcased on the impact map, located on the home page of our website!
So when would you want to make use of the fundraising platform? Here’s an example: let’s say you frequently stream video games and have a community of viewers. With your own custom fundraising page, you can rally your audience, collect donations, and keep track of funds you receive from viewers. Collectively, with enough support, you can eventually build your own GO Kart! Stream players can be embedded in the fundraising page, and you can direct viewers to your page as you build support around your efforts.
Or maybe you don’t really play video games yourself, but have an interest in supporting Gamers Outreach programs throughout the year. With the fundraising platform, you can keep track of your donations over time, and add to your impact by recruiting support from friends and family, or through social media.
Keep in mind: this is the first version of the platform! With time, we plan to roll out a number of features and upgrades to help make the platform better. Our goal is to help make our initiatives as tangible as possible, and ultimately, provide recreation to children in hospitals all across the country.
You can create your own custom fundraising page by visiting http://fundraise.gamersoutreach.org. If you’re unable to attend our upcoming event, Gamers for Giving, launching your own fundraiser is a great way to get involved!
Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or feedback! We look forward to hearing from you, and hope you’ll make an effort to help others level up!
