Nerd Louisville 2016 Recap!
Hello fellow nerds!
We’ve had a busy year here at Nerd Louisville! First, we’ve been growing our community through the forum and social media from a few dozen to over 1200 nerds. Second, we’ve had twenty-one successful Slur Your Role events (SYR XXII starts at 4pm today!). Third, we threw our first ever gaming micro-convention–NerdLouvia. And finally, there’s the other side of our mission which is to enhance the lives of underprivileged local kids through programs like Little Nerds.
In June we began the “Little Nerds” campaign to bring gaming to underprivileged children in Louisville. Our community was generous and quick about donating, and in just a few weeks we raised enough money to provide gaming books and supplies to children at Cabbage Patch Settlement House, Iroquois High School, and the Newburg Boys and Girls Club!
We are grateful to our community for their awesomeness and generosity in supporting Nerd Louisville and these youth enrichment programs. In 2017 we have several new initiatives aimed at expanding our nerd community and bringing gaming to more kids–check back for photos and details soon!
