Gone Home Raises Almost $15K for LGBT Rights Organisation Over The Weekend

Gone Home has been able to raise almost $15,000 for a Non Profit Organization, Lambda Legal, over this weekend. Steve Gaynor, designer of the game, led this charity drive after he announced a couple of days ago that the game would be available for free until Monday morning.

Steve Gaynor, co-founder of Fullbright, announced this news via twitter a couple of days ago. He said that this offer was for anyone who is looking for a little “hope and love right now”. Although the game was free, players still had an option to “pay what they thought was fair for the game”. All the proceeds from this were to be given to a LGBT rights organization, Lambda Legal.

Eventually when the free download offer ended on Monday morning, a whopping sum of $14,971.55 had been donated overall. Steve Gaynor announced this via his twitter account.

Lambda Legal is a LGBT rights organization that fights for the civil rights of these groups as well as those who are HIV effected. They aim to get these people the recognition and importance they deserve in our society through education, legal actions and public policy work. Though Lambda Legal has not made any official statement, people have applauded Fullbright for their efforts.

Steve Gaynor also thanked those who donated for this cause saying that he couldn’t be more grateful to all those who helped in raising money for this great cause.
