Equipment Grants Update

This month two exciting things occurred. First, thanks to the community’s support, we were able to fully outfit a brand new pediatric department at Montana Children’s Medical Center! They will have two Oculus Quest All-in-one VR Gaming Headsets, three FullyLoaded Xbox Ones for each family room, a FullyLoaded Xbox One for each patient room, and Medical-grade MRI Goggles! This means that from day one, children will have these items at their disposal. You, the community, made this possible!

In addition to outfitting a brand new pediatric unit, we also approved 15 other equipment grants! Here is a list of just some of the other wonderful items the hospitals will put your donor dollars towards:

KindVR headsets

AppliedVR headsets (w/link)

FullyLoaded consoles

iPads

Gaming Carts

ARC system from InterActive Projection USA

Hospitals in our network receive a monetary gift every year, and thanks to the community's support, we also have our grant program. Any non-profit children’s welfare facility can apply for a grant, whether they are in our network or not. Without the community’s support, these grants would not be possible. There are many ways you can help with our mission, visit http://childsplaycharity.org/donate to learn more.

Which brings us to our second piece of news. Child’s Play has a new website! We hope everyone loves it as much as we do!

July has been a very busy month for us. Travis and Erick have been traveling in the UK visiting children’s hospitals “across the pond”! If you would like to see a few of the photos from our tour, make sure to check out our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Stay tuned for next month’s newsletter where we highlight our tour of some of our hospital partners in the UK!

Play Games, Feel Better.
