Gaming For Good: Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) (updated)
On Saturday, December 17, 2016 we are hosting our fifth Gaming for Good event. This time we have chosen Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as our charity. Since 1971 the SPLC has been fighting hate and bigotry in the United States. Since November 8th we have seen an enormous increase in the number of hate crimes in the United States. By working together to raise funds for SPLC we can help support their work of monitoring hate groups, educating people about tolerance, and maintaining the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama.
In addition to the work that it does providing information to law enforcement, media, and the public about hate group activities, SPLC has also released 8 educational documentaries (with teaching kits) that it provides free of charge to educators in the United States and Canada.
During the course of the event we will be using the hashtag #NYMG_G4G to share stories and offer information about the history and work of the SPLC. The marathon will take place on Saturday, December 17, 2016, but we will keep a running tally of funds donated through January 31, 2017.
To donate to SPLC please follow this link and select the “In Honor Of…” option under your donation amount by sending an eCard notification (and tell us the amount of your donation) to NYMGamer at firstname.lastname@example.org we will receive notification of your donation (which is tax deductible) and we will be able to keep a running total of donations made for this campaign.
