On April 28, 2018, we started streaming video games at 12 p.m.. We didn’t stop until we’d gone for 24 hours, and we did it all to support mental health initiatives in Winnipeg.
Thanks to all of you, we raised over $4,500 to add to the “A Critical Cause” charity…
With a huge thank you to all our donors and supporters, we’re SO PUMPED to show you what we’re giving away during A Critical Cause: Gamers for Mental Health, the charity stream supporting mental health initiatives in Winnipeg!
