Greetings all,



The weekend before the holiday the AbleGamers crew was demonstrating game
accessibility for the public in Chicago Illinois. I wanted to share some
pictures of the event

girl who was about five years old in her mini wheelchair that had never
played video games before because her mom thought she wouldn't be able to do
it. She rolled right up to our Kinect booth and started playing. It was
amazing. She was laughing and giggling and having a great time all while the
entire crew cheered her on. Her mom was in tears and a crowd gathered around
to see the little girl giggling.



Inspiration at its best.
