NVIDIA creates Minecraft Winter Wonderland to raise money for children’s hospital

It’s the season of giving, and with Christmas around the corner, NVIDIA and Minecraft have created a fun, festive Minecraft experience for charity. Comprised of over 30 million blocks, this grin-inducing winter wonderland is a free-to-download custom Minecraft map, aimed at raising funding and awareness for London Children’s hospital – Great Ormond Street (GOSH).
