Autism Plus is excited to announce the launch of its Gaming for Autism campaign, a fundraising initiative aimed at raising awareness and support around autism during the month of April, autism awareness month.
The 12-hour gaming challenge will take place throughout April, and participants are encouraged to complete the challenge by streaming, playing with friends, or on their own. The campaign aims to connect gamers across the world while raising much-needed funds and awareness. Katie Mitchell, from Autism Plus said “Gaming has the power to bring people together and create positive change. Through this campaign, we hope to provide a fun and engaging way for gamers to show their support for individuals with autism and their families.”
To join the challenge, participants can visit https://autismplus.co.uk/gaming-for-autism to register, download the Gaming for Autism Toolkit and join the Discord server to connect with fellow challengers and share their progress. The toolkit includes everything participants need to get started, including social media assets and fundraising tips.
“Every little bit counts when it comes to making a difference,” said Katie. “We hope that the gaming community will come together and show their support for this important cause.”
