Games Done Quick is one of the most unique charitable organizations doing it today. This organization has harnessed the gaming world’s love for competitive speed-running to raise millions of dollar for charity since 2011. Speedrunning is a competitive sub-culture of the gaming world; where participants try to beat popular games from start to finish with blazing record-setting speed.
Starting today Games For Quick is hosting a week-long Twitch stream benefiting Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. This gaming marathon is the largest fundraising event for either of these charities, MySanAntonio reports.
The week-long gaming marathon will showcase speedruns of favorite franchises throughout the decades including Portal, Counter-Strike, Metal Gear Solid, God of War, Bomberman, Earth Worm Jim, Tomb Raider, Zelda, Super Mario Bros., and Final Fantasy. View the week-long schedule here.
