The ultimate mission for the Festival is to highlight how much games and music mean to children facing life-threatening illnesses. GameChanger helped 8,000+ young patients & staff over the last 12 months thanks to the kindness of the gamers, and the charity will share uplifting stories from their experiences inside of hospitals to inspire the community. On October 2nd we hope to lift your spirits, elevate your personal/company's role in the "world of good", and create a meaningful memory for our friends and partners who have been so instrumental in our ability to change the game for children.
GameChanger Charity's mission is to positively impact the lives of children & families suffering from life-threatening illnesses through video games, compassion and innovation. Founded in Dana Point, GameChanger was started by Jim Carol in 2007 after witnessing the impact video games had on his son Taylor during a 5 year battle with Leukemia.
