Meeples 4 Peoples is a new Phoenix, AZ based initiative by Patrick Nickell. Its object is to provide Eurogames, game sessions, and game groups for private group homes, foster homes, and local organization that cater towards foster / state ward kids.

Says Patrick:

We want to be able to give them positive, social and intellectual options to not only learn life and social skills but have a sense of belonging and family that the board gaming community offers up so abundantly. If we can reach them at this critical time in their life we hope to awaken a passion within them to have the life they truly want for themselves and to avoid the pitfalls that would hinder that option.

Patrick says that that’s exactly what Eurogames did for him. Donations will be accepted once non-profit status is set up.
