Coronavirus is still spreading in the United States and many other parts of the globe, and demand for many items in hospital has skyrocketed. According to Gamers Outreach, over the last week, they've received direct requests from hospitals asking for "Go Karts." A Go Kart is essentially a portable gaming station that allows children in hospitals to play Xbox One games while admitted.
In order to meet demand, The Coalition — the team behind Gears 5 — donated 200 Xbox One X consoles to Go Kart makers Gamers Outreach. The charity said the following.
It's great that The Coalition donated 200 consoles. Hopefully, others will contribute too and help out people in hospitals as much as they can.
