Say hello to Heath. Heath is a nerd.
When Heath was young, he was hospitalized for an extended time. It’s always hard to be confined to a hospital room, and even more so as a child. While he was there, Heath was lucky enough to have a loving family, great friends, and his first video game – a Nintendo DS.
Playing games got him through his hospital stay. It gave him something to do, allowed him to get out of that hospital in virtual worlds, and helped him keep his chin up. When he got home, his love of video games continued, along with being active with his friends and school. He was thankful that he had made it through his hospitalization experience and knew that his games helped.
Many years later, when his parents challenged him to do something to make the world a better place, Heath knew exactly what he wanted to do. He wanted to share the comfort and joy that video games brought to him with kids in need.
Thus, Heath headed out to change the world – as a Charity Nerd.
