Able Gamers Doubles Its Presence at PAX East

Able Gamers Doubles Its Presence at PAX East

Nonprofit charity Able Gamers is all about improving the quality of disabled gamers' lives, and to that end, this year the organization is setting up two booths at PAX East: one on the main floor in the Band Land, and one in the Diversity Lounge.

Last year, Able Gamers raised $33,000 and hopes to exceed that total during this year's show. They're off to a good start, thanks to the support of Harmonix and Paradox Interactive, who both donated $7,500.

Able Gamers has been helping the disabled community since 2004 and is behind the "Includification" movement, a movement focused on increasing consciousness of the idea of accessibility within the video game development community.

For more information or to make a donation, visit the official Able Gamers website.
