    This is probably the most awesome nonprofit org I’ve ever heard of…not because I love playing video games (ok, maybe partially because I love playing video games)…but because it is prompting gamers like me to find supplementary entertainment outlets, while also teaching people about how they can fight disorders such as diabetes and heart disease by getting active. It’s good to know that video game companies are not just out for themselves, but they give back to the people who support them, and they actually care about their customer base’s well-being.

    This is a great way to help kids and give back. We all know that today’s kids are always plugged in, so what an awesome way to show those that are in need that there is an organisation or a community that will help them by carving out a niche for the children that are gamers or tecchies.
