Gamers doing nIce things for the greater good
Everyone here at Artix Entertainment strives to help the community in every way we can. Yesterday afternoon, the entire team at the Secret Underground Lab banded together to help #StrikeOutALS with the #IceBucketChallenge!
After rusting Artix’s real-life Paladin Armor, Artix Entertainment made a donation to the ALS Association to help raise funds for the fatal neurological disorder otherwise known as Lou Gherig’s Disease. This is just one of the many reasons Artix Entertainment is nominated in the Dragon Slayer Awards for Best Community Management Team of the year.
But this is only the tip of the ice(bucket)berg—Artix also called out three other video game studios to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge:
- Blizzard Entertainment
- Rockstar Games
- and Zynga
Let’s hope they don’t get cold feet. Or wait… maybe they will after accepting the #IceBucketChallange!
What YOU can do to help!
Even if you cannot donate to the ALS Association, you can still help the cause by:
- spreading the word of ALS on Twitter and Facebook
- sharing our featured GameSkinny article with family and friends
- coordinating your classmates to take the #IceBucketChallenge
- reaching out to Blizzard, Rockstar Games, and Zynga and encouraging them to complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
- accepting the ALS #IceBucketChallenge and Tweeting your video to @BeleenAE, @Alina_AE, and @ArtixKrieger
It looks like @LakenAQW already heeded the call!
And forget buckets... @BladeOfAE improvised with a ice bath!
Glow with the flow with @GiannaGlow's all-ice #IceBucketChallenge!
And Lothalis took on the bitter cold challenge, too!
Thank you everyone for completing the ALS #IceBucketChallenge, and I'll continute to add more as they arrive!
For additional information about Lou Gherig’s Disease and the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, go to www.ALSA.org and discover how you can be a real-life hero. Together we can #StrikeOutALS with the #IceBucketChallange and our donations!
Battle on for the greater good!
