Meeple-a-thon KC was founded in the summer of 2018 by David Seim while working with Hillcrest Platte County. At a young age, David found himself a member of the homeless community and quickly learned that homelessness and poverty can be a vicious cycle. Sleeping on couches when available, finding income, and basic means of survival were challenging. As time passed, he was able to learn needed life skills to work his way out of the cycle, but many are not so lucky.
Being introduced to Hillcrest Platte County was a calling close to his heart, and he found his passion for caring for those who were in a situation very similar to his own. After participating in numerous charity gaming fundraisers, the idea for Meeple-a-thon was born.
Four years later, the call to help those in need find shelter, resources, and a path out of homelessness is stronger than ever, and our team has grown. This year will be our biggest event ever, with a home for every kind of gamer and an event for the whole family.
