Children’s charity, Lifelites, was delighted to be chosen as a partner for the world’s biggest charity gaming event in 2021, Jingle Jam.

Lifelites began in 1999 as a masonic millennium project, and is now a well-established, independently registered charity.

It donates and maintains its magical technology for life-limited and disabled children in children’s hospices across the country, giving them a chance to do things they and their parents never thought possible; enabling them to play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate, for as long as possible.

Thanks to support from Jingle Jam, Lifelites will be able to continue to donate technology and make a difference to children with disabilities and life-limiting illnesses in hospices across the British Isles.

Since its inception in 2011, Jingle Jam has raised over $20 million for charitable projects, including over £211,000 raised for the work of Lifelites.


We are so grateful to have been part of Jingle Jam 2021 and are amazed by the amount raised. A package of magical technology for one children’s hospice costs Lifelites around £50,000 over its four year life cycle. It includes all the special technology, training for hospice staff on how to get the most out of it with the children that they work with, and technical support to keep it all in good working order for these children for whom every second counts.

Lifelites has developed its own Interactive Entertainment Hub, which is a mobile unit packed full of assistive gaming technology, including the Xbox Adaptive Controller. This controller is the first mainstream controller designed specifically for people with disabilities, allowing the children Lifelites supports to be able to game, often for the first time. Their Interactive Entertainment Hubs can go wherever the child is in the hospice, even if they can’t get out of bed, giving them the chance to be in control and enjoy themselves, irrespective of their conditions.

These children will have the chance to escape the confines of their conditions, communicate their wishes and fears and connect with their loved ones; something that has proven especially difficult throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jingle Jam is so happy to be supporting Lifelites. Games are an amazing medium and Lifelites’ work allows children who wouldn’t normally be able to access games to play along like anyone else. This work changes lives for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.
