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).
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 =)
