Playmob, the London-based technology company championing charitable fundraising through games, today announced the first details of its Peace Games initiative.
Taking place during ‘Peace One Day’, the annual day of global unity on 21st September 2013, Playmob will be running Peace Games Live, a 24-hour live stream event designed to raise funds for worthy causes (http://www.twitch.tv/peacegames). Funds raised as part of the initiative will go towards providing vaccinations for children in war torn areas, education around peace and raising awareness of the movement. Playmob also envisions that Peace Games Live will demonstrate the passion, creativity and generosity of the gaming and development communities.
Peace Games Live will be directly broadcast from the UKIE London Office (http://ukie.info/), streamed globally through Twitch TV. Structured like a telethon, Peace Games Live will encourage donations to its charity page by providing exciting feature content from competitions, podcasts through to competitive gaming shows.
Peace Games Live is also being supported by creatives and celebrities from the games industry, with Mike Bithell the creator of BAFTA Games award-winning Thomas Was Alone already confirming his attendance. Playmob is planning to announce more names and content from Peace Games Live in the coming days.
