Throughout final yr’s E3, we had the chance to accomplice with the staff at Xbox in help of Players Outreach packages. Ticket gross sales from Xbox FanFest generated $20,000, enabling us to construct a fleet of GO Karts for UCLA Mattel Youngsters’s Hospital. Moreover, Aaron Greenberg led a fundraising marketing campaign in reminiscence of Xbox Addict, which helped us place a GO Kart in Phoenix Youngsters’s Hospital, honoring his legacy.

Their aim – receiving a kart for his or her sufferers. We instantly knew this was this system we wished to meet. And what higher approach for FanFest attendees to take part than the present of gaming to others in want?
Nevertheless, we didn’t need to cease with solely FanFest ticket gross sales to meet this promise; we wished all followers to leap in as properly. To that finish, we created two specifically designed Xbox Avatar t-shirts so followers throughout the whole world might buy. Most significantly, all proceeds from the sale of these shirts additionally go to this FanFest – Players Outreach program. We’re comfortable to announce these shirts can be found beginning in the present day! Between June 3 – 14, the 2 shirts within the Xbox Avatar retailer, which carefully resemble the official Black and White E3 FanFest t-shirts, will probably be out there for buy. This coveted merchandise will solely be out there for this restricted time, so be sure to get yours whereas they’re out there!
