    Vote for the Iowa Children's hospital

    University of Iowa Children's Hospital is participating in a contest to win a "gameroom makeover" for pediatric patients.

    The Gameroom Giveaway is an online contest organized by Xbox 360 and Children's Miracle Network, an international non-profit that raises funds for 170 children's hospitals, including UI Children’s Hospital.

    The contest runs through October 16, during which time people can vote online (up to 10 times daily) for the hospital of their choice. The three hospitals that receive the most votes overall will each win a $10,000 gameroom makeover.

    Every time an individual votes for a hospital, they are entered to win one of five Xbox 360 Elite consoles.

    The top three vote getters will get the gameroom. U of Iowa is currently fourth.

    Vote for UI Children's Hospital at: Gameroom Giveaway

    Re: Vote for the Iowa Children's hospital

    I'm glad you posted this. I was going to do it when I got home, but the earlier we get on this, the better. Looks like other hospitals have big groups voting for them, too.

    Come on, Fanatics- we KNOW that we have better tailgating than Iowa (and pretty much everyone else in that poll) but here's a chance for us to really help some people out with our massive voting army. I grew up in Iowa City, and my little sister was born with a genetic condition that had her in the UI Children's Hospital pretty regularly until she was 12 years old. The place is amazing and full of very caring people and some really sick kids. They deserve every bit of support we can get them.

    GO VOTE!

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    The Order of the Rose & Chessman (an honor organization for res hall students at ISU- I'm an exec) is working with our annual Toys For Tots drive to donate a TON of video games and toys to the Children's Hospital this winter. We're especially targeting stuff for teenagers and older children, since they seem to get underserved. Last year we raised $2,000 from residence hall houses and matched that from our own funds. This year, we're looking to beat that. The donations will get split between Toys For Tots and the Iowa Children's Hospital. If anybody would like to make a donation and KNOW that 100% of it is going straight to toys and video games for patients there, send me a PM and we'll get you in.

    Done. Had heart surgery at the U of I hospital 14 years ago, they have my vote.

    I still hate everything in Iowa City though...

    Re: Vote for the Iowa Children's hospital

    If you haven't voted for this yet, please do. You have 10 votes each day per email address. Iowa is back in 4th place by a few thousand votes.

    The contest ends on October 16, 2009 at 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern Time.

    Please help these kids get a new game room to make their lives a little more enjoyable!

    Thanks everyone!
