Developer Insomniac Games announced this afternoon that it has partnered with the Starlight Children’s Foundation to grant wishes to sick children this holiday season. Insomniac Games are the makers of such hit franchises as Ratchet & Clank, Outernauts and Spyro the Dragon.
Insomniac employees are donating items from the Starlight Wish Lists of Miller Children's Hospital in California and Duke Children's Hospital and Health Center in North Carolina, where the company has offices. Insomniac will match all donations dollar-for-dollar.
Starlight Wish Lists transforms the way individuals and organizations improve the hospital experience for pediatric patients. For the first time, hospitals can publish their Wish Lists on Starlight.org requesting items that transform the hospital experience for children, allowing donors to select and ship those items directly to their facility of their choice. The system uses Amazon’s fulfillment network.
"The Starlight Wish List program is a wonderful opportunity for Insomniac Games and our employees to help not just one family, but two hospitals filled with many families," said Ted Price, CEO of Insomniac Games. "We love knowing we can help people in the communities where we live and work to offer families in need a brighter holiday season."
"Insomniac Games has been a tremendous supporter of Starlight over the years and truly understands the benefit of our distractive entertainment programs,” said Jacqueline Hart-Ibrahim, Starlight Global CEO. "As an early supporter of the Starlight Wish List program, we are delighted that Insomniac is strengthening its support of hospitalized kids."
