Raising Money for Gamers’ Mental Health

 

Streamers, friends and content creators from all over the world will come together to show how games can be used to stay connected and social for positive wellbeing.

Great games, great communities, no barriers.

 

Inspired by our annual Great Games Done Slow fundraising event, CheckPoint is launching another event called Great Games Done Social. The current global situation has highlighted how beneficial games can be for staying connected. While many of us are staying at home, games give us spaces to hangout online that are fun and immersive and help us take a break from the real world for a moment.
