Game for Good: Join GameStop to Make Wishes Come True (+ A Chance to Win a $100 Gift Card)!

Written by

It's time to game for good, and for the sixth year in a row, GameStop has teamed up with Make-A-Wish to help make more wishes come true for children with critical illnesses. Adding even more power to the mix for 2018, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) has joined the collaborative effort to help local kids get back to being kids. So now it's our turn to help make some wishes happen! I invite you to join me, The Rock Father™, in helping to spread the word about this awesome effort. In return, you can earn chances to win a $100 GameStop Gift Card, right here from The Rock Father Magazine! While the entire month of September supports this initiative, Wednesday, September 12 is a very important and special day... in honor of National Video Games Day, GameStop will match its donation to Make-A-Wish when they hit the $10,000 mark on that day only! If you want to pick up some awesome games and help grant wishes at the same time, September 12th is the prime day to do it!

GameStop Gives

Donations will be accepted at GameStop stores and online at GameStop.com from August 29 – September 30. One hundred percent of all customer donations collected will be equally distributed to help kids going through treatment at one of the 170 local CMN Hospitals or by having their wish granted by Make-A-Wish. Taking part is easy, and there's several ways to help the cause...

  • Donate at checkout. Guests can give $1 or more or round up their purchase. Plus, PowerUp Rewards members will receive triple PowerUp Rewards points on the donation amount.
  • Donate Online: Donate in $1, $5 and $10 increments. 
  • Donate PowerUp Rewards points. Members can donate points to each charity in the PowerUp Rewards Center.
  • Trade In for Charity. Donate up to 100 percent of trade-in value to charity when you bring unused video game hardware, software, accessories or consumer electronics to GameStop.

To kick off the September GameStop Gives initiative, Microsoft has donated $10,000 and GameStop has pledged $60,000. Plus, GameStop will donate up to $8,000 from the limited sale of the Xbox® Adaptive Controller exclusively sold at GameStop.com. In the spirit of inclusive design and supporting  Microsoft’s “Gaming for Everyone” initiative, the Xbox Adaptive Controller is a first of its kind gaming controller built specifically for people with limited mobility – giving them  a more accessible, customizable and inclusive gaming experience.
