Contrary to popular belief, gamers are some of the most generous people you could ever meet.
Organizations such as The AbleGamers Charity, Extra Life, and Child’s Play continually make concerted efforts to fund positive causes tied to the gaming space. Among those charitable gaming initiatives is the annual Gaming Community Expo, which brings the community together in order to donate money to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. For this year’s event, the GCX will run its usual fan gathering in a virtual format (within a space station, by the way!) and put on The GCX Charity Marathon.
That aforementioned event, which will be streaming live from 6/13 at 12 PM EST to 6/20 at 4 PM EST on http://twitch.tv/gcxevent, will feature a host of popular content creators and developers. If the names Dr. Lupo, BigCheeseKIT, and Digital Extremes excite you, then you should definitely pop in and join in on all the positivity being shared amongst the gaming community. During the marathon’s 24/7 livestream, those same personalities and more will donate their time within four-hour blocks. ONE37pm will be joining in on all the charitable fun and showcase some of its ongoing efforts within that same block of time!
