Xbox Game Pass users in the US and UK can now use their Microsoft Rewards points to donate to SpecialEffect, announced in one of their blog posts during their annual “One Special Day” Celebrations.
The UK-based charity is dedicated to helping people, especially children, with physical disabilities play video games. Working across the globe with various developers to create specialized game control devices and to generally make gaming more accessible for everyone. This isn’t the first collaboration SpecialEffect has had with Xbox however; being one of the charities involved with the creation of the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a device that has done wonders for helping everyone enjoy the games we love.
Those with a Microsoft Rewards points account can now spend 1,000 points to donate £1 to the charity, with £3 and £5 options also available. You can earn Microsoft Rewards points in a variety of ways but the main way most of us will be gaining them is by turning in quests earned playing Xbox Game Pass games. That’s right, you can now support a fantastic cause by simply playing the games you enjoy. Everyone playing games can now help make games for everyone. What’s not to love?
