Sandbox Gaming started by raising money for Children's charities through our 80-hour gaming marathon live-streams in 2010. We strongly believe in supporting charities that promote play and development for children and youth, and we do just that. We have raised over $120,000 for 10 different charities since our founding in 2010.
In 2016 we changed the way we select charities and are now raising money all year round. We introduced a charity application for organization to apply and from there we have our Board of Directors and Committee members vote for their choices. Charities which will receive funds through our summer and winter marathons and a portion of our spring and fall events. Our three charities benefiting from the 2021 Charity Fund are Easter Seals NL, the Autism Society of NL, and the Ronald McDonald House Charities of NL!
