Next month, the mental health gaming charity Safe In Our World is holding a major fundraising event. Safer Together aims to promote discussion around mental health issues in gaming and remove stigmas associated with these issues. TechRaptor is proud to partner with Safe In Our World, and you can get involved too.
What will the Safe In Our World event look like?
Throughout May, Safe In Our World is going to be encouraging gamers and creatives to talk to people around them about their mental health. To do this, the charity will be hosting a whole bunch of fun activities, including a week-long "celebration of gaming" packed with streams by some of the community's leading lights. The schedule includes a Fall Guys stream by former Yogscast creative Hannah Rutherford, as well as a Human Fall Flat stream hosted by Curve Digital and a No Man's Sky stream from indie publisher Wired Productions. Check out the full schedule below!
Safe In Our World is also promising "giveaways...freebies, and...multiplayer mischief" for the rest of May, so be sure to look out for more events, too. The charity is also offering some free limited edition merch if you manage to hit fundraising milestones, including a pin badge, a Safe In Our World facemask, and a branded reusable coffee cup. Check out the rather snazzy merch below.
How can you get involved in Safer Together?
TechRaptor is proud to be partnering with Safe In Our World for Safer Together. Mental health is an under-discussed topic in our industry, and we'd like to help break down some barriers around this topic. That's why we've set up a Tiltify page to help fundraise for the charity. You can give to our fundraiser right here if you want to. Even the smallest amount helps, so if you can give anything at all, don't feel like you're not having an impact! We'll have more information about our partnership with Safe In Our World very soon, so watch this space.
Safe In Our World is also looking for content creators and streamers who want to host events in conjunction with Safer Together. If you've got a good idea for a stream to help raise awareness and funds for Safe In Our World, then you should head over to the Contact page and get in touch. They're friendly folks, so don't be shy - no matter what your idea might be, this month is all about inclusion and togetherness.
You can head over to the official Safer Together Discord channel if you'd like to keep up with the event's developments. Safe In Our World can also be found on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, where all the latest news about upcoming Safer Together streams and events will appear.
