All players have or know some story related to the industry that has moved us and left us with a smile. For many fans of video games, the Christmas season is related to titles and consoles, giving a special touch to the days of celebration.
This was precisely the idea of a group of students from the Volcano Vista school, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, who had an incredible gesture with their teacher.
The students of the Volcano Vista school decided to make a collection to buy and give the son of Professor Nathan Neidigk a Nintendo Switch to serve as a consolation and distraction for the difficult time they are going through.
Professor Neidigk’s wife died recently and his 3-year-old son Mikey now suffers from leukemia. Obviously, the teacher’s income had to be directed to the treatment of his son’s illness, limiting access to certain products or services.
Neidigk’s students discovered that their son wanted a Nintendo Switch for Christmas, a product that was impossible to afford at this time;
however, they decided to bring a little joy to the family by making a collection that raised $475, enough to buy the console along withThe Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
A few days ago, the students surprised Professor Neidigk with a wrapped package and asked him to open it, as it was a gift from the whole class. The teacher opened the package and discovered the console and games he and his son wanted for the holiday season.
The gesture moved him and led him to confess how complicated it was to go to the stores and have to walk past the shelves full of the Nintendo console when he did not have the means to acquire it.
Professor Neidigk thanked his students for the gift and revealed that working with them was one of the reasons why he was fighting alongside his son to get through difficult times. There is currently a support fund to cover the costs of Nathan Neidigk’s son’s treatment.
