Gaming for Pixels is a 48-hour gaming marathon fundraising event campaigning the end of violence against Women
Seriously though, end violence against women, play video games instead.
In lieu of the Sexual Assault Awareness month, which is observed in April, The Pixel Project, an advocate group campaigning the end of violence against women, has announced their Gaming for Pixels gaming marathon to help bring their advocacy to the video game audience this year.
While a large part of the campaign, much like any other video game marathon campaign, is geared towards streaming gameplay, The Pixel Project would not be the ones to stream whatever video game they’re planning to stream, but rather, have any interested participants to sign-up, go solo or form teams, then play and stream, and run the fundraising campaign on their stream or fundraising pages.
Of course, in order to reflect their advocacy, The Pixel Project lays down rules regarding what games you are allowed to play and embed on your fundraising page, such as games that received an “A” or Adult rating, and “M” or Mature. Mature rated games can still be used for the campaign, though, provided you are 18 years old and above and you enable the mature consent setting on your streaming platform. Also, streamers who wish to participate would also have to watch their conduct during their live sessions, for any instances of “profanity, bigoted, or abusive language or visuals“, and “sexually explicit visuals including rape and sexual assault scenes” will have then removed from the fundraising program.
If in case you’re interested in supporting this advocacy by running the fundraiser on your stream, you can head on to the Gaming For Pixels sign up page and register, as an individual or as a team. The Gaming for Pixels gaming marathon campaign will commence this coming April 7, 2017, starting at 8 PM EST and will run until the next day, April 9, 2017, 8 PM EST.
