Stories & news News Be a #GameChanger for my AFK Please vote for my AFK to receive a share of funds raised by GamesAid this year to change the lives of disabled children and young people. Funding from GamesAid has provided some very special and life-changing items of mobility equipment over the past 10 years. We'd like to say thank you on behalf of every child and young person you have helped – and ask for your support again. Meet George George is 7 and has spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). He cannot stand unsupported and relies on a powerchair for all his mobility as he doesn't have the upper body strength to propel a manual wheelchair. George cannot walk and never will but he is a bright, sociable boy who always seems to have the biggest smile on his face. He enjoys freedom and playing with his twin brother and school friends and doesn't want to be left on the sidelines watching everyone else. His favourite games at the moment are Angry Birds, Star Wars DroidWorks and Cut The Rope and he wants to be a rock star when he grows up! There are thousands of disabled children and young people like George who are in urgent need of specialist mobility equipment. Your GamesAid votes will help us to make an enormous difference to George and other disabled children and young people around the UK! Voting is open until 9th September!

Throughout the year, members of the games industry raise funds through events, donations and sales of games, memorabilia and bundles. They then propose and vote each year and the top charities get an equal share of monies raised.
