Over the weekend we participated in GameBlast17 to help SpecialEffect on their quest to level the playing field for gamers of all ability levels. You helped us raise over £600 (a whopping $750!), but more importantly that money went on to total, at the time of this writing,  £82,931 (approximately $103,000)! I am blown away by your generosity and would like to extend my gratitude to each and every one of you, whether you hosted a shift, donated, shared the link, or just hung out with us in chat during the 24 hour livestream. Each and every one of you contributed to this incredible cause, and your contributions will go on to help countless people play the games they never thought they could. I’m so proud of what our little community, and the gaming community at large, was able to accomplish in just one weekend!

But your work isn’t done just yet! Be sure to follow SpecialEffect on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube to continue supporting them and the incredible work they do. We talk a lot about the importance of inclusion in games, and supporting an organization like this one is a perfect way to make a big difference in the world of games. The more accessible they are, the more inclusive they will be.

With our continued support I can’t wait to see what all this organization will achieve in the years to come.

Thank you all,
