A Day to Game

Give Now

Welcome to my fundraising page!

I'll be participating in raising funds for Ability 2017! All funds raised will support The AbleGamers Charity in their mission to make gaming accessible to everyone.

A disability can cause isolation, even in a room of people. Nothing tears down that wall faster than a shared experience, be it a love of cars, or a love of Forza. Unfortunately, for many people with disabilities, the pure joy and social experiences that videogames offer is financially out of reach. AbleGamers provides hardware, often extensively customized to the individual, at absolutely no cost to the recipient.

Did you know

  • Students with disabilities have lower rates of participation in after school activities, leading to decreased socialization and leadership development.
  • Depression, often brought on by the social isolation many people with disabilities face, is one of the most common “secondary conditions” associated with disability
  • The cost of custom accessibility controllers is often more than $400. This is in addition to the normal costs of gaming hardware.

Since I am legally blind myself, The AbleGamers Charity and their cause are very close to my heart.

By donating today, you and I can help AbleGamers fund the cost of technology and outreach programs that empower people with disabilities to define who they are and re-enter the social space gaming provides.  It’s about more than just the entertainment value of gaming, it’s about making lifelong connections and joining the social fabric provided by virtual worlds. Worlds where everyone is equal.

I hope you’ll join me in supporting this incredible cause.

Thank you for your support!
