Got a Steam account? Make our week by voting for our Team Fortress 2 items to make it to their online store!
You can also find our items from within Steam itself by selecting Workshops from the Community menu. Hit the link in the grey text below the main 'Create, Discover...' heading, and on the next page type 'special effect' in the search box (note the space between the two words!). Then hit the Rate button!
If successful, the vote will see the items - a viewfinder, cabinet and belt pack - available online this summer, with 99% of the profits going to help disabled players enjoy games to the best of their abilities.
The idea is the brainchild of James Schall, SEGA's Director of Digital Distribution.
"Demand for SpecialEffect's help is rocketing," said James. "And I'm excited about the potential of these generous artwork donations to kickstart a big-hearted response from the TF2 community to help meet that demand."
Big thanks to James and Mia at SEGA and a MASSIVE round of applause to the following generous and talented artists for designing the items:

"It's a fantastic gesture," said charity CEO Mick Donegan. "Gamers get what we're trying to do, and to get that support from artists within the community is a real endorsement of our work."
"We need £750k this year to give people a fighting chance through specialised games control equipment. We're bringing this technology directly into the homes and hospitals of the people who need it most, and transforming the lives of people with the most severe disabilities through cutting-edge equipment like eye control and brain control."
