Chicago Loot Drop was founded for two simple reasons:
To unite the Chicago gaming and nerd communities, bringing our virtual connections into the real world
To harness the Chicago gaming and nerd communities to do good, in and around the Chicagoland area
Primarily, Chicago Loot Drop brings together Chicagoland nerds for nerdy events around the city that raise funds to buy toys and games for patients at the University of Chicago Comer Children's Hospital, in partnership with Child's Play Charity .
Chicago Loot Drop’s mission is also to bring together Chicagoland nerds. They make a point to work with other organizations in the area, and actively engage with other burgeoning nerd organizations in the area.
