A range of other supporting activities and studio events have already contributed over £100k of donations to the campaign and more will take place on One Special Day itself. These include pub quizzes, a football tournament, abseils, virtual challenge events, a One Button Game Jam, and sales from merchandise.
Dr Mick Donegan, Founder and CEO of SpecialEffect, said: “We’re seeing an ever-increasing demand for our services, which are all provided without charge. The support the event receives from the games industry is absolutely vital in making sure we can continue to reach every disabled person that needs our help. Without One Special Day we simply couldn’t bring a better quality of life to so many people across the world, and we’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved in One Special Day – industry, gamers and donors.”
A huge, huge thank you once again to all the companies involved, and we invite you to buy, play and donate on One Special Day and help us keep the magic flowing for gamers with disabilities worldwide!
