Summer Games Done Quick raises $2.3 million for charity

Good News Notes:

The virtual speedrun-a-thon Summer Games Done Quick wrapped up this weekend with a whopping $2.3 million raised to support Doctors Without Borders, an independent organization that delivers emergency medical aid to people impacted by wars, epidemics, and disasters.

That’s actually down from the previous two major GDQ events, Summer Games Done Quick 2019 and Awesome Games Done Quick in January 2020, both of which surpassed the $3 million mark. SGDQ 2020 was also online-only, however, due to the COVID-19 outbreak—and it’s not as though $2.3 million is chump change. The donations earned during this year’s event takes the total amount of funds raised by GDQ for charities around the world, including Doctors Without Borders, Prevent Cancer Foundation, Direct Relief, AbleGamers, and Organization for Autism Research, to more than $27 million since 2010.”
