Gaming 4 Genesis and playing video games is great to challenge yourself and your friends while raising funds for Genesis Trust. You can choose whatever game and console you most enjoy, play solo or as a team and ask your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you. What better reason to give your gaming a purpose during your spare time and school holidays. It’s a win win situation – play your favourite games and support homeless and vulnerable people at the same time!
