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 https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151019383076670.457038.57979601669&type=1&l=0173bbe97d - there was one particular 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.
