Gaming is such an amazing thing in many peoples lives, to bring it to as many people as possible is great, especially for those whose own limitations make it hard to enjoy. GLHF

Their charity and initiatives are great and awesome, and I want to see them more in the Asian countries as well!

It's great to see people enganged in helping disabled people to be able to do more in their lives. Including gaming.I hope future concepts will provide even more advantages to disabled people which not only simplify but also improve methods they currently use.

That charity is definitely for a good cause. With how popular video games are, people with disabilities should not be excluded from joining in on the fun.

I think it's a great initiative and especially in these trying times for the world where every act of benefaction is hugely welcome.

I really like the flexibility and range of services that Special Effect are providing to their clients. I especially love that they provide online resources for people that can't necessarily access their person to person support services.

It's really hard to suggest an area of improvement, as they state they're always branching out and finding more ways to help their clients.

I think contests like this really help spread awareness of charities like Special Effect. Thanks to everyone involved and participating.

Well, they have a really amazing iniciative, and it's so well structured that I really don't see any more disabillities they could cover. I think, if new areas are to be explored, chairs/furniture that help you keep a confortable yet correct posture are a place everybody could use...

One of the biggest communities (gaming) combined with helping those in need is a perfect combination. I want to see them expand their reach to add donation options in all in game stores to donate. I would also like to see global outreach once funds pick up.
May 4, 2020
I think they're doing an excellent job, expanding the gaming community with people that could previously only dream of being part of is a huge step in the right direction. I'd really like to see this campaign expand worldwide to bring us closer than ever.

Special Effect is an awesome charity doing some amazing work, both supporting people with disabilities and showing how the gamming community can have a positive impact on people's lives. Would love to see this initiative expand internationally.
