Give8-Bit YouTube Channel Launched to Forward Gaming Industries Charity

 A YouTube channel, known as Give8-Bit has been launched by PlayMob to showcase the charitable efforts of the gaming industry. The site will allow submissions from companies or organisations in order to raise money for charity through gaming based projects. 

“We launched our fundraising platform for the games industry last year and we see the most outstanding efforts to give back in the industry,” said PlayMob founder Jude Ower. “It made sense to have a central place for games, Youtube channels and game streams to hold information about current and upcoming fundraisers.  And also spark ideas for how gamers, studios and publishers can give back. As an industry we can harness the powerful force of play to make life changing social impact. Gamers want this and we will provide the quickest and channels for gamers and studios to get involved to raise for the greater good.”

PlayMob estimates that well over $80 million has already been raised by industry projects. Do you think a project like this will contribute heavily to charity? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
