Rocketeer Charity: The AbleGamers Foundation



The AbleGamers Foundation was selected in our latest employee charity drawing. With the belief that there should be no barriers on fun, this non-profit is committed to bringing digital entertainment to people with disabilities so they can develop a rich social life and gain a greater quality of life.

The AbleGamers Foundation empowers those in the disability community by providing gaming equipment, promoting inclusion, educating content producers and supporting the disabled and their families. The organization is currently raising funds for AbleGamers ToGo, a mobile arcade for those who need it most – individuals in veteran’s hospitals, children’s hospitals and long-term care facilities.

Jarred Cox submitted the AbleGamers Foundation for the drawing because of his interest in digital media and how it is being used to improve the lives of others. With a whole division of Bottle Rocket devoted to gaming, we cannot think of a better organization to support than one that enables children and adults with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the world of video games.
