Slightly Mad Studios Donates £48,000 to WaterAid Charity

Gaming 32 January 16, 2019 by

Slightly Mad Studios has been the topic of several discussions lately. Whether it be the studio working on its MadBox console, or CEO Ian Bell having a go at Soulja Boy.

Amidst all the madness, the London-based studio is in the spotlight again. No, it isn’t about Project CARS 3. In fact, you shouldn’t expect that anytime this year — and that’s a good thing. Instead, SMS has donated £48,000 ($61,587) to WaterAid.

WaterAid is a charitable organization that brings clean water, safe sanitation and hygiene education to poor communities. The donated funds are the result of SMS’ own World of Mass Development (WMD) project. Ian Bell had this to say about the donation:

“At Slightly Mad Studios, we have always been inspired by our community. In turn, we have always tried to give back what and where we can: from recruiting talent from within the community to inviting our community to help create our chart-busting games, giving back is an integral part of who we are as a company.

“With this donation to help transform the lives of some of the world’s poorest communities, our WMD members have, once again, inspired me with their trust, kindness, and commitment to instinctively helping those in need. As a studio, we’re all proud and thankful to be able to offer this donation to WaterAid on behalf of our community, but particularly on behalf of our generous WMD members. We continue to be inspired by the good that we can create as a community, together.”

For more on the donation, be sure to head over to WaterAid’s official page. Regardless of how one feels about the studio and its various products, there’s no denying the fantastic humanitarian efforts here. Cheers SMS!
