Wired Productions, publisher of The Town of Light has announced that in addition to a series of other events, a portion of The Town of Light‘s sales will be donated to promote the education of mental health disorders.
Over the next year, Wired Productions will hold various activities and events in an effort to help fund TakeThis, Inc., a non-profit organization that strives to inform communities about mental illness and its prevention. TakeThis also aims to reduce the stigma surrounding the mentally ill and to encourage those suffering from mental illness to seek clinical help.
Managing Director at Wired Productions Leo Zullo believes that the gaming community will come to the aid of those in need.
“Our aim over the next year is to bring much needed funding to partners such as TakeThis, as well as other charities operating at local, national and international levels. The gaming community is such a caring collective, and we welcome its assistance in helping us bring these much needed support services to those that need it most.”
Wired Productions says that a full list of its activities will be announced in the coming weeks. If you have an interest in supporting Wired Productions with a charity event of your own or you are interested in getting another charity involved, you are encouraged to reach out to the publisher directly.
