A portion of all proceeds will be given to Autism Ontario London and Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex (ASLM), two community-oriented, local Canadian organizations.
Kelly Wilson, Autism Ontario London - Chapter Development Coordinator, shared the following on the partnership,
“Autism Ontario London is excited to partner with Digital Extremes and bring a greater understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to the game industry. In Canada 1 in 66 children and youth is diagnosed with autism, making autism one of the most common developmental disabilities. It is vital that those living with autism – whether personally diagnosed or caring for another –receive the support needed to manage the challenges they face. We are thankful for the partnerships with community-focused organizations like Digital Extremes that help us provide support to autism.”
Carol Walters, CEO of the Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex (ASLM), also shared some thoughts,
“We are thrilled that Digital Extremes selected our organization as one of the partner charities for TennoCon 2020. Families living with dementia can feel isolated, overwhelmed and anxious in normal times and these last few months have been anything but normal. The need for dementia support services in our region continues to rise and if the COVID-19 crisis has shown us anything, it is the power of community coming together to help others. We are grateful for this partnership and appreciate Digital Extremes commitment to supporting our work, our clients and our community.”
