Nothing brings a smile to your face like being able to play your favorite arcade game. Don’t deny it, we all have those fond memories of hours spent around the air hockey, billiards, or foosball table. Imagine what life would be like if you didn’t have that kind of entertainment. Would you gift those memories and that fun to someone who doesn’t have it?
At Sage Arcade, you can both give and receive the fun of a classic arcade game when you make a purchase, because for every game bought Sage Arcade sends another to a foster home because for many children around the USA, life is devoid of games like darts and ping pong. Children end up in foster care for a number of reasons, either having be relinquished at birth or in their childhood by an abusive or incapable parent or guardian. Sometimes, they are orphaned and have nowhere to go.
In 2015, the AFCARS  reported that at any given time, there are over 415,000 children living in foster care in the United States. More than 22,000 of those kids will spend their entire childhood being raised in a foster home. So many kids wake up each day without a smile, without a space to share moments of laughter with those just like them.
Yet, you can change that when you make a purchase at Sage Arcade.
While you know that playing billiards, air hockey, and darts is pure entertainment that brings groups of people together anywhere there’s a table, did you know there’s health benefits too?
For example, playing billiards is a social activity that builds communication and body language reading skills, burns calories, and increases one’s focus and attention span. Plus, you need strategy to be able to angle the stick, hit the cue, and sink the shot perfectly. Foosball is often used in rehabilitation centers because of the light exercise intensity tones muscles and fights a sedentary lifestyle.
There is no denying that such games are good for mind and body at any age. Therefore, you know you’re doing more than just helping yourself when you make a purchase from Sage Arcade, you’re helping raise a better generation. It doesn’t matter that they’re in foster care if they can receive the same benefits and build community within that house around a pool or air hockey table.
You might be thinking about how expensive pool tables, air hockey, and all the equipment used to be when you were a kid. You might even be thinking that you can barely afford to buy an arcade game for yourself let alone a foster home.
This is where Sage Arcade does something awesome. Not only is there a huge selection of games to choose from in categories like air hockey, darts, ping pong, foosball, dome hockey, and chess, there are styles and sizes fit for every budget.
