Every dollar will give us the chance to keep the Hotline open longer each day, and the opportunity to reach more people to help them critically engage with the media they love. We have the power to change media together!
If 2020 has taught us anything, it's that we have to fight for the things we believe in. When you’re a nonprofit, you have to have the resources to put up that fight. This year, our big plans - a spring launch for the Games and Online Harassment Hotline - were thwarted by the economic fallout of the pandemic. It’s taken time, but thanks to this community, we were able to raise the funds we needed to get the Hotline up and running.
We created the Hotline specifically for the gaming community. Whether you're a player, developer, streamer, competitor - any part of this community - we're here for you.
The Hotline is needed even more now than when we first thought of it. While the pandemic pressure cooker continues, things will continue to be difficult physically, mentally and socially. The pressure on the gaming industry pressure is rising. Harassment and online abuse are actually on the rise.
This month, our goal is to raise at least $25,000. With your help, we’ll start 2021 strong. With your help, we'll end 2021 with the ability not only to better support the gaming community, but to help the industry itself begin to move past toxicity, misogyny, abuse and harassment.
If we want to support the gaming community and transform the gaming industry, we need your help.
