Community Giving

One of the best parts about games is the community which they create.  This goes doubly so if you work in the industry.  Some fantastic people not only put out fantastic work, but are also wonderful humans.

Due to this community, sometimes wonderful things can happen when tragedy strikes close to home.

If you haven’t seen or heard, great member of the game audio community was displaced by Hurricane Irma.  Tony Porter and his family (with 4 kids, if the image above is anything to go by) had to evacuate their home and have since been living out of a hotel room.

Some very phenomenal people jumped at the opportunity to give back to Tony individually, which has since spawned a gofundme campaign.  As of this writing, they’re a little north of $3.2k raised, with a $10k goal.

This post has one message – if you haven’t given of yourself (be it time, money, etc) to victims of any of the recent natural disasters to hit the US, now is a great chance.  If you have, thank you, and also consider helping out one of your brethren.

You can check out a large sampling of the rad things Tony has worked on here.  Here’s just a small list:

  • Power Rangers: Legacy Wars
  • NBA Live 18
  • WWE 2k
  • Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2
  • Call of Duty Modern Warfare/Black Ops (Nintendo DS)

If you’ve been touched by his work – give back!
