Tuesday 6th December 2016, London, UK – Today, UK games industry charity GamesAid is proud to launch its 12 Days of GamesAid Christmas store on eBay.
The UK games industry has to come together to offer Christmas shoppers the ultimate wish list of unique gaming gifts to help raise money for GamesAid, helping disadvantaged and disabled children.
From 5th – 18th December, the GamesAid eBay store will auction off an amazing array of items – the like money usually can’t buy!
Items include a Deluxe Edition of Final Fantasy XV and artbook signed by game director Hajime Tabata, a copy of Football Manager 2017 signed by the Sports Interactive team, a Limited Edition Shrine of Malacath statue from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and a copy of Star Wars Battlefront: Ultimate Edition with a poster signed by the DICE team
All the items can be found on the GamesAid eBay store, with even more to be added soon, including a mint copy of Forest of Doom signed by Ian Livingstone and a signed copy of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare- Legacy Pro Edition.
“Last year, the UK games industry raised a whopping total of £954,000 for GamesAid. Thanks to some incredible donations from our partners, we’re making Christmas extra special with our 12 Days of GamesAid auction” said Ian Chambers, Chair of GamesAid. “Every penny from the auction on our eBay store will go directly into our funding pot, which makes a huge difference to the lives of the young people our charities support. Please show your support and get bidding!”
Huge thanks to: Activision, Bandai Namco, Bethesda, DICE, EA, Ian Livingstone, Media Molecule, Sega, SK, Sports Interactive, Square Enix, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, Techland, and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for donating some truly incredible items.
