ESL partnering with Gamers Outreach to support children in hospitals

Posted on: Jul 12, 2019 By Isabelle in News and trends,

ESL, the world’s largest esports company, has announced a partnership with Gamers Outreach, a charity organization providing gaming equipment, technology, and software to help children and teenagers cope with treatments in hospitals, as part of ESL’s new “Gaming for Good” initiative.

Together, ESL and Gamers Outreach will launch an awareness, fundraising, exhibition, and integrated campaign in conjunction with Intel® Extreme Masters (IEM) Chicago on July 20-21, which will continue with various ESL events in the future. 

Partnering with Gamers Outreach will allow ESL to support children in hospitals, where gaming can help serve as a connection to the outside world, the motivation to fight a condition, and dream to become somebody.

ESL is currently hosting an IEM Chicago ticket fundraiser, where up to USD 10 from each ticket sold will be donated directly to Gamers Outreach. In addition, Gamers Outreach will have an exhibit booth onsite at IEM Chicago, where fans will have the opportunity to learn more about the charity and find out how they can volunteer. ESL and Gamers Outreach will also explore opportunities through Gamers Outreach’s Project GO Kart and Player 2 initiatives, in which volunteers build and deliver custom game stations for children that are unable to leave their hospital rooms during treatment and recovery. 

To purchase tickets, please visit the IEM Chicago 2019 ticketing page and follow @ESL and @GamersOutreach on Twitter for the latest updates.
