Global Game Jam®️, IGDA, Itch.io and StreamLabs Charity are calling on all content creators to #StandWithUkraine and #StreamForUkraine on 16 & 17 March 2022 using the Itch.io Bundle for Ukraine.
The Bundle contains over 900 pieces of content and to date has already raised over $5m for the following charities that are supporting refugees and the growing humanitarian crisis from the ongoing war in Ukraine:
- International Medical Corps provides medical assistance in the region. They have very low fundraising overhead (1% of income), with 89% of donations going to medical aid and 10% to administration.
- Voices of Children, a Ukrainian organization that helps children cope with the horrors of war, PTSD, readjusting to school, and getting back to being kids. They have also been doing a lot of grassroots impromptu work during the war, such as helping set up shelters. Our hope is that this war will be over soon, and they can begin the work of healing these kids' hearts.
Get the Bundle, play games from it on stream and encourage your viewers to buy and support the bundle as well.
Your viewers can also directly support these charities through StreamLabs:
- International Medical Corps
- Voices of Children (Pending)
