EA have revealed a charity event that will run this week, June 12-19.

As a celebration of the global gaming community and in order to give back to organizations fostering a better world, EA’s Play to Give program will be encouraging us all to participate in five challenges with in-game rewards and they’ll be donating a total of $1 million to these five organizations:

It’s a celebration of these organizations and the player communities that support a more inclusive environment in videogames and help support and foster future game-makers.

we can all help celebrate Play to Give by joining any of these in-game challenges starting today:

Some say Greg isn’t one person but a group of many people posting under the pseudonym “Greg”. No one knows for sure but either way, as long as he continues to fight the good fight of reviewing games, then we will always consider him a hero.
