Annual One Special Day Fundraising Campaign
Today, SpecialEffect launches its annual One Special Day fundraising campaign, bringing together the games industry to raise money for disabled gamers. The campaign invites gamers to support the charity by purchasing select titles and DLC from industry partners, with a percentage of the revenue going to SpecialEffect. The campaign includes the One Special Day Steam Promotion (October 5-8) and the Mobile Promotion (October 6). Alongside these promotions, various events and activities have already raised over £100,000 ($121,509), and more events are planned for One Special Day.
