Great Games Done Slow 2 Officially Kicks Off This Week

If you're looking for a cool gaming charity stream to watch this week and possibly donate to, Great Games Done Slow 2 has officially started. The premise is pretty simple, as a play on GDQ's format, this is a two-week charity event featuring dozens of Twitch streamers. From now until September 28th, the group will be raising funds for CheckPoint, which is a charity that connects mental health resources with video games and technology. All donations gathered by those participating in the event when they're streaming for the cause will go to that effort. Here's a little more info from the group.

Streamers, friends and content creators from all over the world will come together to show how games can be used for positive wellbeing. Great games, no time limit, no pressure. All participants are encouraged to integrate wellbeing and peaceful play into their streams. Find new ways to make a classic game meditative. Explore the most relaxing games out there. Create worlds at your own pace. And all for a wonderful cause: the mental health of gamers.

There's no official set schedule, but there are a couple of links to check out. You can find out what their plans are in the Discord channel, and you can watch the streams of people participating through this Twitch team link.
