The Gaming Outsider’s 2nd Annual Child’s Play Charity Drive 2016

The crew at The Gaming Outsider spend a lot of time putting together an informative and entertaining podcast on a weekly basis. Each year we strive to give back to the community that supports us by incorporating our favorite past-time into helping those in need. Child’s Play accomplishes this by taking donations and purchasing video games and toys for sick children who are stuck in hospitals around the country. Not only does Child’s Play brighten the days of a child fighting to heal in these hospitals by giving them gaming goodies to play with, but it also gives these children and their families a much better Holiday season.

No child wants to lay in a hospital bed with nothing to, so donating to Child’s Play helps these kids take their minds off of their challenges and greatly aids in the healing process. Our goal this year is to make at least $500 for the Child’s Play organization. Please consider donating by following the link below or using the widget on the right side of this website to help some children out this Holiday season. Stay tuned to The Gaming Outsider Facebook group for community events surrounding this charity drive, including the community picking games for the hosts to live stream and give-aways as well. Remember: none of this money goes to us at all — all of the proceeds go straight to the Child’s Play charity. Thank you and have an awesome Holiday season!

Video games played a huge part in his childhood and continued to do so in his adult life. Starting out on an Atari 2600 when he was 3 years old, gaming has sort of grown up alongside with Josh and continues to be his biggest hobby.
