Summer Games Done Quick (SGDQ) 2016

For those of you who don’t know, I am an avid video game watcher and player. I enjoy both aspects especially since I’m not necessarily good at video games.

Games Done Quick¬†hosts two 7 day, 24 hour live streams a year to raise money for charity. Basically people speed run games and those who watch donate money just to donate to the cause or to “bid” on certain perks. For example, in the Awesome Games Done Quick (basically the Winter marathon), during the Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix speed run¬†people could donate money to bid on what Disney song they wanted to be sung. It was a really fun bid.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2016 is currently going on. It’s running from July 3rd-July 9th and all donations go to Doctors Without Borders. You can also order the official SGDQ 2016 t-shirts and $3 will go towards Doctors Without Borders. I already bought my SGDQ shirt and I can’t wait to see the bids that come up throughout the week to figure out when I want to donate.

This awesome event is put on and the speed runners don’t get any money, they do it just to have fun and raise money. It’s a great event that I want to bring attention to.

Humble Bundle has also joined and has a special bundle that will benefit Doctors Without Borders and features a few popular games as long as you pay at least $15.

As a side note, I think I might start expanding my blog to talk about books, video games, and music.
