We have a friend in our arcade game community who is disabled. He has many dreams but few faculties. He comes into our chat room and often talks about how he has few local friends, no girlfriend, and is in general, very lonely. Every year, he looks forward to attending the California Extreme arcade show because it is one of his only chances to be around friends and to play the games he loves.

Due to his Tourette's syndrome, dyslexia, and other disabilities, he cannot type/spell very well and ends up getting picked up by other people around him (and on the internet).

He absolutely loves games but one game in particular is at the top of his list. He often talks about how he is "saving up" to buy it, or that he wants to own it someday. But realistically, given his disabilities, this is probably never going to happen. And we, his gaming buddies, watch from afar, sorrowing.

We are now doing something about it. And I invite you to join with me to warm this guy's heart and help him feel loved.
