Gaming for Good, a charity organization headed up by Internet personality Bachir Boumaaza (aka Athene), has successfully raised over $10 million for global youth advocacy group Save the Children as of this week.
Gaming for Good offers up dozens of downloadable PC games that can be purchased using points earned from charitable donations. A number of publishers and indie studios have joined the campaign and offered their games up as free donation incentives, including Square Enix, Remedy Entertainment, The Fullbright Company, and Cellar Door Games.
Donations processed through Gaming for Good and its fundraisers are matched by the United States Agency for International Development and multiplied by a factor of 13. Previously, Boumaaza partnered with Razer and DC Entertainment to raise over $1 million for African hunger relief.
