WHAT IS #SPAWN4GOOD?
#SPAWN4GOOD is a platform that we hope to expand to give gamers ways and initiative to do good in the world. A platform with which to talk about social issues that the great gaming community isn’t addressing. Especially those affecting gamers of color and underrepresented groups. In our first effort, we shared raised over $5K to combat police brutality. This year we’re doing something a little different.
We at the Spawn On Me podcast understand that all encompassing healthcare is a right and we want to do what we can to support those fighting for those rights. Congressional barriers to necessary healthcare are something we want to push back against while educating and supporting those in need so the next topic we’re going to tackle is reproductive rights and abortion access for women, transgender, and non-binary people.
When thinking about this particular topic to raise funds for we wanted to pick an organization that was using its efforts to support these marginalized groups but especially supporting people of color. We found that National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) was an exemplary example of just that.
Although our show is hosted by two men, we both deeply care about these issues. We know that since we can’t speak to these topics from personal experience so we wanted to give a platform to those who have, do and will.
We’ll be using the tags #S4G2 and #ReclaimRoe during the event to both share our activist gaming platform, and bring awareness that Roe v Wade’s anniversary that will be happening 4 days after MLK day.
Funds donated during our gaming fundraiser will go to The National Network of Abortion Funds. If you’d like to donate or spread the word please use this link: tinyurl.com/s4g2016
