Gaming should be open to all individuals. SpecialEffect has a great mission that is important to all gamers. At a time of such turmoil in the world, gamers must stand together in promoting inclusiveness and understanding. The adventures we engage in while playing games showing us that there is so much value diversity and acceptance of others.

As a special education teacher, this is very exciting. It will give many kids the opportunity to play games and will also serve as a way for them to connect with their peers.

That's so cool that organizations like Special Effect are working to make videogames more accessible. I think the drive to make the world more equitable for everyone makes the world better for us all. The breakthroughs that can come from that sort of mission improve all of society and not just the lives of individual members.

Giveaway aside. It's really cool what PC Gamer and SpecialEffect are doing right now. I had a friend that lost his hand in a workplace accident and we used to play together before losing his contact.
He had a custom setup so he could use a mouse and man... That setup was complicated, but he loved to play. If you are reading this, be safe bro and keep that beautiful spray control as always!

I love the work this charity is doing because when a larger variety of people are able to access gaming, the community as a whole benefits from the added diversity of points of view contributing to such a rich and rewarding hobby and industry.

Keep up the awesome work!

Here at PC Gamer, we’re committed not only to highlighting independent games studios with our Studio Spotlights, but ‘Games Beyond Entertainment’ projects that make the world a better place. That’s why it’s our pleasure to announce our year long awareness campaign in support of SpecialEffect.



What do SpecialEffect do?

SpecialEffect put fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games.

By using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control, they find ways for people to play to the very best of their abilities.

What are we doing?



We’ve teamed up with SpecialEffect to spread the word about this incredible charity. Every month for the next 12, we're giving away an EPOS | SENNHEISER GSP 370 headset to a community member who completes the steps below.

You have 12 chances to win over the coming year! First, Sign in to the forums or create a forum account. Then every month come back to this post, click the link below, and complete the entry options.

When you're done, reply on this thread with a comment telling us what you think of the charity to confirm your entry.
That's it! Once you've completed the steps, you're entered to win! We’ll announce a new winner and put up a fresh link in this thread on the first working day of the month, every month. For a year.



I don’t need a headset, can I support in a different way?

Donations
Sure you can - we’ve created a Just Giving page if you’d like to make a donation, but it’s not required! All donations go straight to the charity, and if you have any questions on what the money is used for, SpecialEffect will be here all week for their Spotlight week to answer.

Volunteering
For volunteering opportunities in the UK, please ping @beckyfr0st who can answer your questions in a separate thread.

For people with disabilities, everyday things other people can be hard and it should be the humanity's aim to lessen these hardships. Through entertainment they can't experience otherwise, they will become a part of the community. SpecialEffect operates for this cause and we should support them in every way we can.

My daughter is disabled and confined to a wheelchair. Luckily she can play video games without much limitation but a lot of people aren't as fortunate. She's had a difficult life so anytime we can help her do something that everyone else can do, she's happy. It's difficult because she's so much more limited but it's absolutely worth it. Seeing companies like SpecialEffect put so much work into helping people with disabilities partake in something that everyone else enjoys and takes for granted is simply amazing.
