Me and my brother always play video games, since he had an accident and he was mentally disabled, we couldn't play together as before. What you do not only helps people like my brother, also helps people like me and my family to bringing back happiness to our home and fulfilling a dream, seeing my brother being happy again.

What SpecialEffect is doing is awesome. The fact that they allowing people with physical disabilities to have access to the world of gaming serves as a great outlet and is a great way for them to bond with others and stay entertained, especially in a time like this where many are cooped up indoors.

This Charity is going to help so many and in different ways. Just as the video discusses, it will help people with disabilities with developing their motor skills and as you can see it effects their mood. You can see their happiness that is expressed when being able to interact with games which had not been available to them before. This will also help develop more advanced electronics and learning programs for everyone. Games help critical thinking which we all need.

I think that having the gamer community who can often come of as toxic to outsiders pull together to share this kind of experience is great.

I personally knew a person in US who was disabled & he used to play games with pad with right hand & feet as he was paralyzed totally from left side. He was good person & very well respected by our small gaming community forum, he passed away in 2016 RIP Peter. It's very well nice initiative to help people with disabilities.

I'm a gamer and one of the lucky ones. I'll admit that I am selfish because of this: I'm not used to give a second thought about how I play, I just do; however sometimes I get anxious about what would I do if suddenly I couldn't play whatever I want anymore. This charity helps those people that can't play like most of us and gives them a way to enjoy the games they love.
I'll be selfish again: I really hope never needing something like this to continue enjoying my hobbie of choice but I thank you for the work you are doing for all who needs it
