Story

Thousands of people want to share your passion for video games, but their physical disabilities stop them playing the titles we all know and love.

You can change lives this February by signing up for GameBlast24, the UK's biggest charity gaming weekend in support of SpecialEffect!

All the money you raise will help us find ways for people with disabilities to play again. You'll be funding the expertise, equipment and lifelong support that will bring fun, inclusion and joy into the lives of gamers everywhere.

Step 1 - Decide what you're doing - Decide what type of stream you want to do. What games? For how long? Solo or with a team? Its up to you! Then choose the date and time that works best for you over GameBlast weekend.

Step 2 - Set up your page - Sign up and set up your JustGiving fundraising page!

Step 3 - Max out your stream - Head over to our Discord for support and conversation! As we get closer to the event, you'll find stream overlays, social media images, video assets, alert GIFs, and a handy set of cheat sheets to help you with your event.

By signing up I agree that:

I'm voluntarily participating in the SpecialEffect GameBlast24 at my own request and at my own risk. I absolve SpecialEffect, their event partners or any event personnel of any and all liability arising from any injury, illness, death, loss or damage suffered as a consequence of my participation in the event. If I'm under sixteen years of age, I confirm that I've informed my parent(s)/guardian(s) of my participation in the event.
