Earlier today, Ubisoft revealed its Sixth Guardian Program, which aims to raise money for different charities through selling digital Rainbow Six: Siege content. Starting in Year 5: Season 4, the game will feature a special charity item bundle, with proceeds going to AbleGamers this time around.
The aforementioned bundle will include a uniform, a weapon skin, a charm and headgear. One hundred percent of its proceeds will be sent directly to Able Gamers; a charity which helps support people with disabilities by providing them with the adaptive tools they require to enjoy gaming.
“We decided to launch the Sixth Guardian because we recognized an opportunity to mobilize the Rainbow Six Siege community around important issues,” said Karen Lee, Lead Community Developer for the game and creator of the Sixth Guardian Program. “Our players are so passionate, and we wanted to give them an easy, effective way to support incredible organizations, like The Able Gamers Charity.”
“The Able Gamers Charity is honored to partner with Ubisoft to support players with disabilities with this amazing Sixth Guardian bundle,” said Steve Spohn, AbleGamers Director of Peer Support. “With more than 46 million players with disabilities in America alone and even more worldwide, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have the ranks of the Rainbow Six community joining our quest to combat social isolation and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities by providing the equipment and knowledge they need to play in the virtual worlds we love so much.”
