Last Saturday HireVue hosted the Cheat Codes for Charity event at the HireVue office. We love opening our office space to the public for a variety of events. Cheat Codes for Charity has been an event we've enjoyed hosting for the past three years.
Cheat Codes for Charity
Cheat Codes for Charity was started to raise money for the Child's Play Charity which helps children in hospitals by donating toys and games. Gamers gather together and complete a 24 hour gaming marathon to receive donations for the charity.
Over the last three years we have now raised over $4,500 for Child's Play Charity. They donate toys and games to children in hospitals, care facilities, and domestic abuse shelters. Our donations have helped hundreds of children take their minds off their daily struggle and helped them on the road to recovery.
How Did the Event Go?
Gamers gathered in the collaboration area of the HireVue office ready with personal computers, XBox, and Play Station. Food was supplied in plenty to ensure all gamers were fueled and ready to take on the next challenge.
