Welcome to OUR fundraising page!

Bad Friends are an awesome group of friends who love to game together. We want everyone to be able to enjoy computer games as much as we do :D

We are running our second fundraiser on Twitch on the 16th of July! 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

  • One in five Americans has a disability. Down under, the stats are no different; 1 in 5 Australians has a disability - that is 2.2 million people aged 15-64.
  • Types of disability include hearing loss, vision impairment, physical disability, dyslexia and mental illness.
  • People with a disability are less likely to enter the workforce, leading to both financial and social isolation.
  • 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.

By donating today, we 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.

Please join us in supporting this incredible cause.

Thank you for your support!
