Gaming 4 Water started as a quest to collect and play the iconic video games of my youth. It was a classic case of nostalgia. As I searched for my favorites titles, I discovered that I wasn't alone. Collectors and hobbyists were abundant and I quickly realized that finding all my favorite games would not only be time-consuming but expensive. Fortunately, with the help of a few new acquaintances I met online and in my local community, I discovered there is a rich and passionate community of retro game enthusiasts all over the world.
Over the next few months, my love for the classic games came flooding back. I recalled many positive memories from childhood and relived countless moments that were very special to me. And I wasn't alone! I found many other people who had similar experiences and these classic games meant more to them than just entertainment.
As I continued to play these classic games, I felt that this quest could be something much bigger than my own personal enterprise. I started asking the question: how I could use this new passion to bless others? This simple, yet challenging question is how G4W was born. Our aim is to end the global water crisis. It's a massive and difficult goal but we won't give up!
