The worldwide Counter-Strike tournament organiser BLAST Premier has pledged $12,500 to our life-changing work.

BLAST Premier started putting fines aside that were deducted from teams during the 2020 Fall Season and Global Final and pledged to give these to a charity of choice. We simply can’t thank the team at BLAST enough for choosing us to receive such a wonderful and innovative gesture.

Andrew Haworth, Commissioner for BLAST Premier, said: “We’re delighted to be able to donate last season’s BLAST Premier Fall Season team fines towards such an important and worthy cause in the form of SpecialEffect’s life-changing work. We know first hand the good gaming and esports brings to millions of lives around the world, but not all of us are fortunate enough to be able to readily access it and that’s where their brilliant work comes in, by ensuring those with disabilities don’t miss out on the good gaming can bring to their lives.”
