Good Saturday afternoon everyone!
We all do a lot of gaming around here. I mean, it’s what we do. The reasons behind this gaming are not always the same however as that what makes us different. Some do it for fun, some do it for the competition, some do it to relax and some do it to help others.
Rémi and I fall under each of the above and thanks to him a few years back I joined up with the yearly Extra Life where thousands of players around the world play in a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. So when the wonderful people at Stride PR reached out to us about the new One Gamer Fund going on this weekend, we had to share it.
Find out all the details below and happy gaming!

“Gamers are among the most generous humans on earth, raising millions of dollars a year for charity,” said Russ Pitts, co-founder and president of Take This. “One Gamer Fund is a logical and long-overdue next step in harnessing the bottomless heart of the gamer community. Seven charities combined into a Voltron of altruism. And we’re honored to be a part.”
“Millions of gamers have already contributed to the individual charities One Gamer Fund supports because each of their causes are so meaningful,” says Seven Siegel, co-founder, One Gamer Fund. “With One Gamer Fund, it’s never been easier to help some of the most distinguished gaming charities all at once.”
