Gaming for Good: The Trevor Project
On Saturday, August 12, 2017 we are running our seventh Gaming for Good event. This time we have chosen The Trevor Project as our charity and we are co-hosting with Girl Tribe Gaming so that we can do even more gaming and even more good. You could say that we have “Leveled Up.”
The Trevor Project is a non-profit charity that was founded in 1998 to focus on suicide prevention for LGBTQ folks 13-24. The organization was started by the creators of the Academy Award winning short film Trevor and provides a number of services including suicide prevention training and resources, social and political outreach, and crisis interventions in the form of chat, text messaging, and a 24 hour lifeline.
The Trevor Project also works closely with academic and research institutions like USC School of Social Work and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles to help advance research into suicide so that more can done to understand suicidal ideation and how to do suicide de-escalate.
If you would like to support this campaign, but are unable to donate you can always participate by streaming along with us, hanging out in streams, or just helping to spread the word so that more people can learn about our campaign. Thanks for your continued support of our Gaming for Good initiative.
You will be able to donate during the marathon, but the donation portal is open now through the end of August 2017!
