EVENT DATE: Dec 03, 2010
When: December 3rd, 2010, 8:00pm CST
Where: Everywhere! (hardmode.org)
How: Through the magic of the internet.
Through hardmode.org, a site that specializes in online gaming marathons, we are putting together a fundraiser to support the YWCA, an organization that seeks to empower women, end racism, and provide a safe place for women in need.
One of the bigger issues the YWCA continues to tackle is that of violence against women in its many forms: stalking, domestic violence, rape. The list, quite literally, goes on. If you have been, or know someone who has been affected by these types of acts, you know how horrible they can be. We hope to help raise awareness and support for the YWCA in their continued efforts to stop any of them from happening.
The YWCA has many chapters across the country. We are focusing on the Oklahoma City establishment.
The main event will go live Friday, December 3rd, 2010 at 8:00pm CST. We are planning on a 24 hour run of four video games with strong female leads. Video streams, chat rooms, and general shenanigans can all be found at hardmode.org on the day of the event.
