RVAP a lucky recipient of Hartley's Video Game Drive for Kids

The National Post's Financial Post Tech Desk editor, Matt Hartley, collected new and used video games for children's hospitals and pediatric centres across Canada, in his annual Hartley's Video Game drive for Kids before Christmas.

The Rouge Valley Health System hospital's were among the lucky recipients of games for kids.

Pictured are two of the staff of the Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering hospital's paediatrics department, with just a small sample of the many games the hospital received and quickly in use by kids on the floor.

Last year Matt collected more than 500 games and consoles, which were donated to child's life departments from coast to coast. He set out to beat that total this year and here's his answer on whether he succeeded:

"I’m incredibly pleased to report that thanks to the unbelievable generosity of National Post readers, Postmedia employees and our corporate partners, this year, we more than doubled our haul from last year, collecting more than 1,100 games and 27 consoles that were distributed to nine hospitals across Canada," Matt writes on the National Post website.
