The Get-Well Gamers Foundation announced today that they've had a 25% increase in the number of hospitals participating in their program. The California-based charity brings video game systems to kids in hospitals because games are "an effective and proven pain management tool and provide needed entertainment during long hospital stays." The Get-Well Gamers Foundation currently has 41 participating hospitals in 26 states.
As GayGamer points out the expanded network increases the need for more games and systems. Moved on to better systems and your old consoles are just collecting dust? Donate it and make a sick little gamer happy. Oh, and it's tax-deductible.
The only real request by Get-Well Gamers is that the games please be age-appropriate. We think that's a perfectly reasonable request and let's make another suggestion -- get these kids newer systems than the N64 pictured. They need next-gen STAT!
