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.
The campaign will run to 9 December 2018.
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.”
Gaming for Everyone
Alan Hartman, Studio Head of the Forza Franchise and SpecialEffect VP, said, “As a very proud SpecialEffect Vice President I’m delighted they are part of the #GiveWithXbox campaign and having hosted Dr Mick at Turn 10 and seen more of their latest work I know this campaign and any support for the charity will help them make a big difference to the disabled gamers they help across the globe.”
The #GiveWithXbox Campaign was launched as part of the Inside Xbox broadcast from X018 on 10 November. Find out more at https://www.xbox.com/en-US/promotions/give-with-xbox
