Healing through video games

Heart Meter's mission is to improve the lives of children in hospitals. We do this by donating video game systems, games, and accessories.

Here's how it works:


Step 1

We accept your generous monetary donations.

Step 2

Use those donations to purchase video games, gaming systems, and gaming accessories in bulk. More bang for the buck!

Step 3

Deliver these games and gaming systems to children's hospitals.


Here's why it's so important:

According to Cancer.gov in the United States in 2007 10,400 children under the age of 15 were diagnosed with this terrible disease. The average chemo tretment can take from a number of hours, to a couple of days. During this time the children are confined to a room, and often only a bed. That's a lot of hours to fill. Our goal is to provide new, fun entertainment options to get them through this tough time.


Meet Steven Gonzales

Given only 2% chance of surviving a rare form of cancer, Steven turned to video games to build the future of healing.


Jane McGonigal found herself bedridden and suicidal

Following a severe concussion, she had a fascinating idea for how to get better. She dove into the scientific research and created the healing game, SuperBetter. In this moving talk, McGonigal explains how a game can boost resilience — and promises to add 7.5 minutes to your life.
