PlayMG, makers of the first dedicated pocketable Wi-Fi Android app gaming system for young people, recently donated 25 MG gaming systems to the Chase Child Life department at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA.
Some of the units were distributed as gifts to hospitalized children over the holidays. Other games will be used throughout the year by the Child Life specialists to provide fun for patients at the bedside or help provide distraction while a patient waits for a medical procedure.
According to the San Diego-based company, "MG" stands not only for "more game," but it also stands for "more good."
"We structured our company so that the launch of MG would also serve as the kickoff to our 'more good' effort," said PlayMG founding partner Geoffrey DeStefano. "PlayMG is not only comprised of technology, game and social industry veterans, but parents, who strongly believe in supporting youth causes and sharing the happiness and fun MG's 'more game' provides."
