This is disappointing, friends. After just over a month of constant battle with hackers, Gamers Against Bigotry succumbed to an attack which erased all 1,500 pledges gathered so far.

The group is asking for donations to help it beef up its security measures – or even practical help, if you’re tech savvy. Read more about the movements goals here.
