Gaming for Good Raised Over $10 Million for Save the Children
Tis the season for giving and boy did you guys give, to the tune of $10,070,602. As of this week Gaming for Good, the charity organization overseen by Bachir Boumaaza (Athene) raised the funds for global youth advocacy group Save the Children.
It all started when Gaming for Good offered dozens of downloadable PC games that could be purchased using points earned with donations.
A number of publishers and indie studios joined the campaign and offered their games up as free donation incentives, including Square Enix, Remedy Entertainment, The Fullbright Company, and Cellar Door Games. The funds were then matched by the United States Agency for International Development and were multiplied by 13.
