Helping those affected by Hurricane Harvey

Every gamer knows there’s a time for games and a time to hit the pause button. Hurricane Harvey is dropping 30+ inches of rain across the gulf coast of Texas, leading to unprecedented destruction of property and loss of life from severe flooding. We’re hitting the pause button and focusing our efforts on helping the people and first responders of the greater Houston and Texas Gulf Coast regions.

Right now, the American Red Cross is looking for donations to help support their relief efforts. Your donations will go towards supporting displaced residents, ensuring everyone has access to food and shelter, and more. Here’s how you can give:
