“We are very happy with the support we get from big companies in the game industry. The games and gifts received help to encourage donations and leverage the collection. This will help us with the goal of hitting our target of BRL 25 thousand for the purchase of controls adapted for PwDs”, comments Christian Bernauer, president of AbleGamers Brasil, who declared that he will get a tattoo with the AbleGamers logo if the goal is reached this year. “To entertain the people who follow our live on Twitch, we will also have a musical attraction by the band Nerdstones.”
