Pro Gamer Athene Interview -- Raising Over $1 Million For Save The Children Foundation


Posted July 16, 2012 - By Rob Manuel

Gamers might have gotten a bad rap in the past, but Pro Online Gamer Athene has over a million reasons why gamers are not slackers. Thanks to donations from gamers around the world, as well as Razer and DC Comics, Athene raised over $1 million to support Save The Children, an organization dedicated to helping children in Africa, America, and around the world.

He called it Operation Sharecraft. While this was not Athene's first foray into charity, it would turn out to be his biggest, with over 20,000 donors and with the help of Razer and DC’s We Can Be Heroes organization matching all donations up to $1 million. We were lucky enough to get a few words with the world renowned gamer about what it takes to raise such an impressive sum of money to help children in Africa.

You can also check out We Can Be Heroes to learn more about the organization or check out their Darkness & Light exhibit that supports the origination through art.

It’s not always about moving mountains in order to save the world. Sometimes, it just takes one gamer to make a difference.
