My story starts in 2019
I love video games, and my daily drive is the Sci-Fi Hardcore MMORPG EVE Online.
At the 2019 EveVegas meetup, the Eve Online developer CCP, organized a Fundraiser for the benefit of AbleGamers Foundation.
I attended the Fundraiser and this is where I learned about AbleGamers Foundation, their mission, who they are and what they do.
I think with Covid pandemic we all realized, the negative effects of social isolation. Now, imagine impaired people who live their entire life in isolation.
Gaming can make their lives better and fun and I believe this is the perfect time to raise awareness and promote AbleGamers mission.
You can join this pool and be part of its mission, or you can help by making donations on their website here: #SoEveryoneCanGame
