A week after Hardlight’s charity stream will see the start of another charity stream from another group of familiar people. The gaming side of Sonic Paradox, Paradox Power Plays, will be holding a two-day charity marathon stream to raise awareness of anxiety and depression. The games will not be just Sonic and SEGA ones, however. Any game could be played. The group has a press release, courtesy of ShadowRemix, that explains more:
Paradox Power Plays is back at it again!
With last year’s PPP Charity run for Child’s Play Charity raising over $1,000 we figured we would buckle up and try this year for yet another good cause. We plan to raise at least or over $2,000 for the ADAA (Anxiety and Depression Association of America)!
Why choose this? Because we here at gaming side of Sonic Paradox have a few members who suffer from anxiety and even depression. Having friends and family around usually helps, but we all know that sometimes that just isn’t enough and more help is needed. We realize that this isn’t something that gets any of the spotlight for charities or donations, and we plan to fix that through this event if only just for two days.
With your help in donating, or even spreading the word, the ADAA will gain awareness and funds into more research that can help doctors and mental health physicians. It will help in finding better ways to approach Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder(OCD), Depression, Suicide, and much more!
It’s one thing to just talk about it, but it’s another to make people aware of it.
So come join us here while we game to our hearts content from the 27th of February to the 1st of March. You may even win a game or two that can be played on Steam just for donating or even a physical copy of a game given away somewhere along the way!
All in all we’d like you to help us take those first of important steps in the right direction…
… The steps of making people aware.
If you wish to spread the word by all means. If you wish to donate as well you can do so here.
