#GiveWithXbox to raise up to $1M for charity

What does Gaming Together mean to you? SpecialEffect are asking gamers to join Xbox’s #GiveWithXbox campaign by posting their answers, along with an image and the hashtag #GiveWithXbox, to raise vital funds for four gaming-related charities.

For every qualifying post on Twitter, FaceBook and Instagram, Xbox will donate $5, up to a maximum of $1M, to be split among SpecialEffect, Child’s Play, Gamers Outreach and Operation Supply Drop. Xbox will also donate $5 for every retweet of their campaign tweets about the charity partners.

Gail, the mother of Finlay, one of SpecialEffect’s beneficiaries, said “#GiveWithXbox is such an easy way for gamers to help bring the joy of gaming to everyone and I’d encourage anyone to donate a few seconds to take part,”

“We never thought Finlay was going to have the opportunity to play video games like FIFA with his brother but now, thanks to SpecialEffect, it’s amazing to see the boys gaming together. The fights are even more phenomenal, but that’s just brothers for you! Please do support SpecialEffect by sharing a photo of what gaming means to you.”
