The charity made by the developers of Rainbow Six Siege has greatly benefited the AbleGamers. Ubisoft declared Rainbow Six Siege’s first charity bundle in the Sixth Guardian Program raised $171,183 for the AbleGamers Charity.
The Sixth Guardian Program, a bundle set dedicated to benefiting a variety of non-profit organizations, got reported back in November 2020. Looking back at last November’s project, the Sixth Guardian Program aims to support an in-game bundle on Rainbow Six Siege. With a full-Season span per bundle with 100% of net proceeds released, at least $6 per sold bundle will go to the desired charity. This charity is AbleGamers.
Every transaction will directly support a charity and help different kinds of causes. In partnership with the gamers, together they desire to unite the Rainbow Six Siege community and make a positive community outside of the game.
The AbleGamers charity bundle was available at the beginning of Rainbow Six Siege’s Year 5 Season 4. The bundle was about 1200 R6 credits (about $9.99 on Ubisoft’s store.) The bundle inclusion was:
- A uniform
- Weapon skin
- A headgear with a touch of orange, white, and grey AbleGamers colors.
Who are the AbleGamers?
The AbleGamers Foundation, also known as AbleGamers Charity. It’s a non-profit public charity that aims to make improvement of the overall quality of life for those with disabilities or handicapped, through the power of video-games.
AbleGamers charity relies on the support of its fans and big-time sponsors. Aside from Ubisoft, other well-known companies are currently sponsoring their advocacy just like, Twitch, Logitech, Xbox, Playstation, EA Esports, etc.
With the help of this charity, they have turned the lives of many handicapped players. They have given them a new hope to live and excel in their own way. To this day, they’re still creating new ways to make content that would support their players in the near future.
By indulging in video-games, it helps individuals with ailments to experience scenarios that’ll seem difficult or limited in the real world.
It also provides social networking opportunities to maintain mental health and emotional health. Generally, playing video-games is one of the world’s best pastime hobbies to stress-relief and have fun with friends across the globe.
Chief Spohn Shows Appreciation for Ubisoft
Gaming activist and one of AbleGamers’ chief operation officer, Steve Spohn, supposed that hope shows that someday other companies will follow the footsteps of Ubisoft and “carry on with serving gamers with disabilities both in their online gaming and life outside the game.”
Steve Spohn remarked that their charity always loved working hand-in-hand with Ubisoft Montreal and the other staff management of Ubisoft to change the world. With the aid of Ubisoft, AbleGamers’ mission to spread positivity to everyone through gaming has been made possible. Through this charity, players and developers work together to further their mission and hopefully succeed in their future projects. Gaming industry leaders are excited and pumped to see what lies ahead. Who knows there will be future tournaments held specifically for handicapped players.
