Gamers for Sandy Hook

- December 31st, 2012

While the Mass Effect series has sometimes been blamed for the horrific massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, Commander Shepard himself is helping with a new gamer-led fundraiser for those affected by the tragedy.

Called Gamers for Sandy Hook, a group of kind-hearted gamers is raising funds for the The Sandy Hook PTA to cover the victims’ medical bills and funeral costs.

Since everyone in our group are avid video game enthusiasts, we were inspired to use our passion to help our grieving brothers and sisters. Consequently, Gamers For Sandy Hook was born. We are not affiliated with any company or organization. We are grassroots organization fueled by our own individual hearts and pockets.

They’ve already got the support of video game actor Elias Toufexis (Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell), and the top bidder gets a Skype date with Edmonton’s own Mark Meer, who voices Commander Shepared in the Mass Effect series.

As I write this, the top bid is $50. You’ve got until Jan. 25 to beat that.
