D&D: Forging Heroes Wants To Bring D&D To Your Schools
Showing that you don’t play Dungeons and Dragons without learning a little something about courage, the Forging Heroes Society is an organization dedicated to helping kids everywhere play RPGs. Help them forge a new generation of heroes.
We all know roleplaying games are great. They bring us together–giving you an immediate shared experience if you’re playing with strangers, or deepening connections when playing with friends. And the skills they teach: communication, problem solving, teamwork, to name a few–are invaluable. I don’t need to tell you that gaming might save the world, professor McGonigal can tell you that.
On top of that, games–and roleplaying games especially promote reading and creativity, all the things that are good for growing young minds. The Forging Heroes Society is an organization dedicated to bringing the joy and creativity of roleplaying games to children while providing them with positive role models and leaderhip–a little like Big Brothers and Sisters.
Forging Heroes Society exists to encourage, empower, uplift, and educate children through the medium of tabletop roleplaying games, and the leadership of positive, adult role models.
We believe in getting people, and especially kids, into table top role playing games, and work to make that dream a reality. Our goal, is to ensure that anyone who is interested in playing table top role playing games, has the opportunity to do so.
We do this by supporting schools, youth groups, libraries, and community groups who are working to give kids of all ages access to the games.
This is an amazing thing they’re doing. RPGs can be expensive, but the organization provides the supplies and volunteers (if you’re near them), or assistance to teachers/leaders running their own D&D Clubs.
Right now they’re looking for a little help to expand their reach. If, like me, you know how much roleplaying games can help a person–it’s an activity like no other, really–this is a great way to give back. Consider checking out their GoFundMe campaign, featured below.
