Sandbox Gaming is a registered non-profit organization located in Newfoundland and Labrador. Sandbox Gaming has three objectives: 

1) To raise money for children’s charities that promote play and development.

2) To build and sustain a gaming community in Newfoundland. 

3) To dispel negative stereotypes about gaming.


The group was founded in November of 2010 by John Michael Bennett, Donald Reid, Scott Whelan and Jeff Smyth. They took their love of video games, and decided to do something great with it! Since then, the group has seen over 80 members come and go--some are still around since the very beginning. Sandbox Gaming has raised over $120,000 for many different charities.


Sandbox Gaming was known as Goodwill Gaming until September 2013.
