Seeing each child receive and value the equioment, which are collected and sent with so much effort for a year, is simply an extraordinary experience, it opens your mind, and shows you a thousand ways to pursue the world.

I think it is important to feel support to achieve your dreams and I think that game time does that, it is a grain of salt that drives you a lot to continue fighting for what you love so much.

Gracias a Game Time por su misión y vision, el sacrificio y esfuerzo que se lleva día tras día es de admirar, todo esto que hace GT de llevar alegría a los niños más necesitados y que puedan practicar deporte es bonito ya que en la mayoría de los casos se cuenta con muy pocos recursos por parte de los padres de familia.

Me gusto ser parte de la experiencia game time, lo mejor? Verle las sonrisas a los niños cuando llegas a llevarles esas palabras de aliento para que sigan haciendo deportes y para que luchen por su futuro, eso no tiene precio. Hay que seguir brindando esa esperanza a los niños para que en un futuro alcancen sus sueños.

I liked being part of the game time experience. The best part is seeing the smiles on the children when you get to bring them words of encouragement so that they continue playing sports and that they fight for their dreams, that is priceless. We must continue to provide that hope to children so that in the future they will achieve their dreams.
