Gamer’s for Humanity

Gamers for Humanity

If you made it out to Gen Con this year, one of the more unique booths you might have seen would have been for Gamer’s for Humanity.  These folks weren’t selling anything.  Nothing at all.  They were instead collecting donations as well as passing out information about a great charity that really speaks to Gamers:  Gamers for Humanity.  Does the name sound vaguely familiar?  That’s because these kind folks partner with Habitat for Humanity, a charity group that builds houses for needy families.

The basic idea of this organization is that they donate a small game library to each family who receives a habitat for humanity home.  They tailor the library to the specific family, and often the library size is around 5 or 6 games per family, from what I have seen.  Why do games matter?  The idea behind these donations is that a home is much much more than four walls and a roof, it’s about spending quality time with family, and gaming can be a big part of that.  Games are a great reusable and inexpensive form of entertainment that gets the whole family involved and engaged in conversation.  This makes the perfect housewarming gift to a less fortunate family.

In addition to GfH’s charitable contributions to families, they also encourage gamers to participate in volunteer opportunities throughout their community by offering giveaways and prize opportunities.

If you would like to learn more about this organization, or how you can get involved with this movement, please feel free to check out their website at http://www.gamersforhumanity.org.
