Every time you place an order with P4D we'll give you the option to Round Up Your Pound for our nominated charity, SpecialEffect. They are the only UK charity to bring fun and enjoyment through computer and video games to transform the lives of people with disabilities. When we tell you what your order total is we'll give you the option to round it up to the nearest pound and, if you say yes, we'll give the spare pennies to SpecialEffect. You can watch the gift grow in real time, right here.
You've helped us raise tens of thousands!
Round Up Your Pound launched in May 2012 and in less than three years you helped us raise more than £15,000 in small change for 16 different charities. Thank you! From 1 April 2015 SpecialEffect is the nominated P4D charity and everything we raise will go to them in support of their innovative work. We previously raised £1,002.69 for SpecialEffect over a three-month period in 2013, which they used to continue "enabling the most severely disabled people to get as much out of life as possible."
More about our nominated charity
Through one-to-one support and loans of adapted video game technology, SpecialEffect is meeting the needs of thousands of people of all ages across the UK who miss out on the inclusion, friendship, and fun of social technologies. People with severe spinal injuries, progressive conditions and combat injuries have all benefitted from their support. The charity is run by volunteers and relies on donations.
"When I regained consciousness I couldn’t move and I couldn’t speak - all I could do was move my eyes. It’s impossible to explain the fear, desperation and helplessness you feel when you’re totally unable to communicate."
— Matt Hampson
SpecialEffect eye gaze challenge
Nick and Mark from the charity came to visit us at P4D Headquarters and put us to the test on a racing gaming challenge using eye-gaze technology. See how we fared!
