They say that gamers are not supportive, that we just know how to play video games all day and that we are not worried about other people outside our homes. Initiatives like play Therapy they show that video games can also have a solid side and that they can serve to relieve a process as hard as chemotherapy for the children who have been affected by cancer.

I know Juegaterapia here, by the people of Play over, and I found it very interesting. So you've decided to inform me a little bit, and visit both of you web, than you blog and their profiles Facebook and Twitter; and I met a bunch of lovely people who, in an uninvolved way, He works hard to reach smiles for children undergoing chemotherapy.

I don't have many ways to contribute to the cause: my old video games have been selling them on eBay for a long time or I have given them family. But with Mirjam, in charge of Juegaterapia's Twitter, they offered to help with the impact of a post-interview to make their work public. So, though small, it's my sand grain. I can only thank the people of Juegaterapia in general, and especially Miriam, for all the help given. I hope this little contribution will at least remove some conscience.

What is Play Therapy?

Juegaterapia is an organization based on the idea of ​​considering the game as part of the therapy of a hospital. Children in chemotherapy spend long periods of time in hospital, with treatments that are so difficult to reduce their defenses and limit visits. Therefore, a console is a good companion in the room, it helps them to be distracted and to speed up the waiting time between sessions and sessions.

How did the idea of ​​Play therapy arise?

I came out thanks to Mnica Esteban, our President. I gave her a "PSP", which her husband no longer used, in a child in chemical treatment; and what looked like a simple gift, became a perfect playmate at the hospital. Monica told us all about how he went, that kid's new smile and his mother. And the next Monday we all came with a console to donate. We all delivered them to Nio Jess Hospital in Madrid and each one started to smile more and more. So one day, as good ideas arise, by chance, someone said "Why don't we do it seriously?", and was founded between twelve friends Juegaterapia.

How's the process because someone has donated a video game until it reaches the kids?

Through our email info@juegaterapia.org And from social networks contact our interested donors and explain the donation process.

Then we receive the consoles directly in our headquarters in C / Sagasta n 8, 1 of Madrid. Or, by the 20 associations attached to the Spanish Federation of Children with Cancer (FENC), there are spread over Spain.

Once the orders are classified by hospital and city, we pack each console with 3 video games (for children under 18) and a sticker so that the child or his family can voluntarily contact the donor. And that's when the expected smile finally arrives.

What do you do to help people donate?

The consoles and games can be sent to any of the addresses distributed throughout Spain, or you can personally take or send them, which is better for everyone.

In addition, since very little time, you can also work with Juegaterapia who makes a donation on the web, or buy one of us t-shirts. With the money we get, we can buy cables, controls, games and other necessary expenses to help the children. And if someone doesn't have to donate, he can give us his ideas. They are worth more than money and help us to get better and reach more places and more people. So everyone can donate something.

Considering that the recipients of the games are the kids, what kind of games and consoles do you collect?

We collect all kinds of used consoles: PlayStation, PSP, Nintendo and Xbox, and games for everyone. Must be, it's games for children under 18 because it's about kids.

Should people respond or should you convince gamers to release their consoles and video games?

People respond very well to this project, the consoles are not recyclable and this is a way to give them a new utility. That the donation for children and their families brings smiles and calm. When they play with your last FIFA, the one you've played a thousand times, they don't think about & l39; a lumbar puncture over a few hours. If they play your console, what you have already renewed for a better one will help them relax and forget things that no child should think about. And to know, encourage them to participate and make them a little easier to get rid of their used games and consoles.

Did you notice a kind of long-term goal?

We would like Wi-Fi in hospitals, it's a big project we want to do. This will allow children to resume studies, have contact with their friends and friends and briefly overcome the isolation that can be felt if you are hospitalized for so long.

Thank you for this interview, it was a pleasure. A big hug.
