Just because you´are disabled, doesn’t mean that you should not be able to enjoy video games. And that´s where SpecialEffect Gamers charity and GamePointsNow get into the picture. Because they work really hard to raise money for children with disabilities.

So that they can get treatment and get the proper equipment (so that they can enjoy video games just like everyone else).

SpecialEffect works with Gamer charity.

If that´s not Gaming for a good cause, then i don’t know what is. So don´t miss out on GamePointNow´s stream via Twitch TV (Cook will try to break the  Guinness World Record for “The Longest Video Game Marathon On a Football Game” by playing FIFA 15). And don´t forget to donate to Chris Cook´s (his the community manager at GamePointsNow) JustGiving page. A big thank you in advance folks!

And oh! Chris Cook will start to stream his Fifa 15 Guinness World Record attempt around 3pm (UK time) on the 5th of November. So we wish him the best of luck with that =)

Press release:
October 29 2014 – London, UK – Chris Cook, Community Manager at GamePointsNow/GameKeysNow, today announced that he will be making an
attempt to break the Guinness World Record for “The Longest Video Game Marathon On a Football Game” by playing FIFA 15. The attempt
aims to smash the current record of 48 hrs 5 minutes and help raise funds on behalf of the awesome charity Special Effect.

“I’ve been playing FIFA games since they first started way back on the Mega Drive, so couldn’t think of a better way to raise money &
awareness for a truly amazing cause,” said Chris Cook, “As someone who has seen firsthand how gaming can help enhance lives, I could
not think of a better charity to lend my support to”.

The event will be taking place at the popular gaming themed cocktail bar Loading Bar in Dalston, North London between the 5-7th
November 2014 and members of the public are encouraged to come a long and join in, have a drink and more importantly, donate to
Special Effect!

Online donations can be made via Chris’ JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/FifaWR

The record attempt will be live streamed live (internet stability permitting) via Twitch.tv (http://www.twitch.tv/GamePointsNow) and
will feature giveaways from big name supporters like Insert Coin Tees, QWERTEE, Campo Retro clothing, Papa Johns Pizza, Hauppauge and
more. There will also be opportunities for people to challenge Chris to online matches throughout the entire attempt.

SpecialEffect is an award-winning charity that helps people with disabilities to benefit from the fun, rehabilitation and therapy of
video games. They support people of all ages through assessments, equipment loans and equipment modifications.
