A hilarious Ryan Reynolds AbleGamers has popped up online, detailing a new fundraiser for a charity that helps disabled gamers enjoy our hobby just like the rest of us.
“My friend Steve Spohn asked me to jump in and help spread the word about this incredible initiative that he’s involved with,” Ryan Reynolds said in the promo video. “But, full disclosure, he did offer to pay me the 278 million dollar speaking fee that I’ve been accustomed to.”
Reynolds went on to explain a bit about the AbleGamers mission before the charity’s COO Steven Spohn jumped in to detail its mission. AbleGamers, simply put, is a charity that helps people with disabilities game just like the rest of us.
Their mission is accomplished by providing custom controller setups and specialized software. As AbleGamers’ FAQ notes, some of these setups can get quite expensive: the average cost of a grant to help out a disabled gamer with new tech is $350 and some cases can go as high as $5,000.

For 15 years, I've been telling people how video games improve the quality of life for people with disabilities
