Support for One Special Day gathers pace

OSD logo and boy playing games Here's another industry invitation to join the likes of SEGA, Seriously, Rovio, Codemasters, and other major companies in supporting the third One Special Day on Friday 28 September 2018 to help people with physical disabilities enjoy the fun and inclusivity of video games.

This annual flagship industry fundraising event raised £446K in 2017 and the we're hoping to raise £500,000 this year. Already many new partners, including Miniclip, Outfit 7, Splash Damage and Lockwood Publishing, have pledged support.

Our Founder & CEO, Dr Mick Donegan, said, “One Special Day is an opportunity for the games industry to be loud and proud about helping to bring the magic of video games to people with even the most severe disabilities.”

“The income will have a huge impact. It will not only fund our one-to-one work with people with disabilities, but also our research and partnership work with developers and manufacturers, making more projects like our free eye-controlled Minecraft software possible and ensuring we can have a continuing global impact on video games accessibility.”

John Clark, SVP Commercial Publishing at SEGA Europe Limited added, “The team at SEGA are continually moved by the impact Dr Mick and the team has in changing people’s lives. We are delighted to be part of One Special Day again and look forward to helping SpecialEffect keep on making a difference.”
