I am a gamer that has been saved by the industry multiple times. I've had ongoing problems, mental illness, and gaming has been a crutch for me. It picks me back up and sets me my way to success once more. I am a great student and have a lot of potential to give the world; however, I wouldn't be able to say this if I hadn't had video games in my life as a temporary escape from my temporary problems. I need enough money to buy my own gaming equipment so that I no longer need to rely on my family's equipment. I need something to call my own and be there when I need it, not something I hope is free when I need it. Any donation is greatly appreciated!
