Full Paragon is a new Mass Effect fan-initiated fundraising campaign, playing its name off the “paragon/renegade” actions and choices players face in the game series.
Inspired by the generous fans who raised money recently, but not explicity planning to follow ReTake ME3’s perogatives, Full Paragon wishes to provide fans looking for a place to follow in the footsteps.
The Mass Effect community has always been giving, from gaming marathons to Facebook fundraisers. This is one initiative kicked off by Reddit organizers, hoping to gain support of other fangroups on Facebook, Bioware Social Network, and more.
The Full Paragon campaign reached out to Kids Need to Read, a charitable foundation started by author PJ Haarsma, actor Nathan Fillion, and Executive Director Denise Gary, which focuses on supporting children’s literacy. According to the KNTR website, “Kids Need to Read works to create a culture of reading for children by providing inspiring books to underfunded schools, libraries, and literacy programs across the United States, especially those serving disadvantaged children.
In conclusion, Mass Effect is a story-driven series with an incredibly rich universe. The trilogy has attracted a passionate following of imaginative, giving people who want to open up exciting new worlds to children through books and stories in the same way Mass Effect did for the players. We’re elated to be supporting Kids Need to Read, for their efforts in raising children’s literacy all across America.
So this is awesome.
