We’re excited to be able to give back to the gaming community and beyond, whilst supporting environmental conservation and the LGBTQIA+ community.
The charities we’ve chosen are:
By using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control, Special Effect are finding ways for people to play games to the very best of their abilities. But they’re not just doing it for fun. By levelling the playing field, they’re bringing families and friends together by having a profoundly positive impact on quality of life.
Safe in Our World
In 2019 the charity Safe In Our World was born. Their mission is to foster positive mental health wellbeing and deliver support, not only for players but also developers, publishers, retailers and the other incredible folk and teams who make up the video games industry. Their goal is for the industry to come together and start a conversation that can change lives.
Safe in Our World – #Coatsink10 Walk-a-thon
We’re kicking off our fundraising efforts by attempting to walk 10,000 miles as a team by the end of 2021. We understand the importance of taking a break from the screens and getting some fresh air and some exercise so we decided to combine this with teamwork and charity.
