Bring Joy to Children with Cancer

Overview
What is your cause and how will it make the world kinder?

Gamerosity exists to bring empowering gifts to children with cancer by utilizing the incredible impact of community. We know that when we come together, people are better because of it, and when you're a child diagnosed with cancer, there's no better feeling than knowing you're not forgotten in that hospital bed. The gifts we provide for these children are tangible, meaningful, and symbolic of their courage, perseverance, and bravery. Simply put, we use the love and compassion of the community to help these kids be kids in a time of their life that their diagnosis has attempted to steal their identity.

How will you use the $10k?

This grant will specifically be used to support the children who, through no fault of their own, have been marginalized through their difficult circumstances. This grant will help bring 15 of our Hero Packages to children who've been waiting for someone to assist them and bring the joy, value, distraction, and empowerment they deserve.

The breakdown includes wearable goods that we include in their Hero Package. Also included is our technology package which includes an iPad Mini, $50 iTunes Gift Card, Griffin shock absorbent case, and headphones. It's a thoughtfully curated package of useful, empowering, quality gifts to support them through their journey.

What impact do you hope to make?

The greatest accomplishment the Gamerosity community has ever made is letting kids know they're valued. When you're diagnosed with a disease, you ask yourself often, "what's wrong with me?" and we get to respond with, "Nothing's wrong with you, you're valued, loved, and cared for, we've got your back."

The support of this grant will help us "close the gap" that is happening with children struggling with their circumstances and bring them real, tangible joy. To add the KIND Foundation community to our story of perseverance and connection for these children is very a very special opportunity.

Immediately upon funding, we'll find 15 children who've been waiting a long time for their care package, connect with their families, get an update on the child, and begin purchasing the supplies needed for their Hero Packages.

And while the packages are fun and special, the personalized items we bring to the Hero Packages make it even more special. From letters to fun videos letting them know someone thought it'd be great to show them love will start going out to the families to get the kids excited.

Every month, KIND supports one cause with $10,000
