Statements Kid playing video games

Published on November 23rd, 2012 | by Nidde



First off, the kid in the picture has nothing to do with the post, aside from being a kid and playing video games.

It’s a little late for this notion to have struck, but naturally there should be some sort of charity attached to this project. And a selection has been made.


The Swedish Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Barncancer Fonden, came as a pretty easy choice. Thoughts went out to Child’s Play, but they don’t seem to operate in Sweden, the country where The Indie 500 Project is based. Since this came as a pretty late thing the logistics are not really done yet, but here are two ideas:

  • Every time a big enough retail game is released that it deserves mentioning here, a copy of that game will be sent to a child suffering from cancer or a pediatric cancer ward in Sweden.
  • A collection will run throught the project and when the project ends all the funds will go towards video games in pediatric cancer wards in Sweden.

Other ideas are in the works, but we’ll see what we can do. And as stated, there’s currently no logistics for this set up, so hold on to your money a bit longer.
