A minimum of 5% of Jorge’s fees will support Ayudar Jugando, a Spanish charity that hosts gaming events to raise funds for children in need around the world. Every year, the organisation chooses a different cause to support; for example, Jorge worked closely with Ayudar Jugando in 2011 to help raise funds for those affected by the tsunami that devastated Japan.
