Popcap Games auctions art for charity
The fine folks at Popcap are auctioning off 34 pieces of art from some of their biggest titles, and all for charity! The auction is running at www.ebay.com/popcap until the 12th of July. Each week up to nine pieces of game art and one of a kind commissions will be sold to the highest bidder, all for a good cause. The charities involved are UK charity, SpecialEffect and US charity Starlight Children’s foundation.
SpecialEffect is dedicated to helping children with disabilities enjoy interactive entertainment and other creative interests through cutting edge technology. Starlight Children’s foundation is involved with helping seriously ill children and their families cope through entertainment, education and family activities.
Dr Mick Donegan, Director and Founder of SpecialEffect, said:
“SpecialEffect has long been a fan of PopCap and their dedicated outreach to helping children in need. We’ve used several of their games for the disabled young people we work with – a particular favourite being Peggle because with our specialist support, it can even be played by young people who are paralysed – just by moving just their eye! An auction of this magnitude is sure to not only raise the spirits of those winning the items, but also the spirits of those who’ll be helped by the proceeds.”
Here’s a quick video for the first week of auctions:
