About Maximum Hope FoundationWhen a child is diagnosed with a life-limiting condition, parents may lose income or employment due to extended stays in the hospital with their little one. This financial toll can threaten a family’s home, leave them unable to pay bills and even prevent them from getting to and from the hospital where their child is receiving treatment. To ensure these families know they are not alone, the Maximum Hope Foundation assists with mortgage payments, rent or other living expenses so parents can focus on what is most important: their child.

Hate groups frequently use video games to recruit members, but they have also become a prime space to harass children. “If you are not one of them, you are an enemy, and they enjoy trying to make people miserable” Mr. Potok said.A 2020 Anti-Defamation League survey found that 68 percent of online gamers experienced severe harassment. Fifty-three percent of respondents said they were harassed based on “race/ethnicity, religion, ability status, gender or sexual orientation”; and 51 percent received threats of violence.
Mr. Potok said that online abuse is a problem all children can experience, but marginalized groups are at particular risk.Lydia Elle, an African American business owner and writer in California, said her 11-year-old daughter began playing the online game Roblox during the pandemic to connect with school friends. Her daughter put an avatar of an African American girl on her profile and was quickly targeted, her mother said. “Virulent racists quickly honed in on her and called her horrible names,” Ms. Elle said.
