Tune into One25’s channel on 14 September

However you choose to join in with GameGood, you’ll be in good company. We have some big name gamers who are aiming to pull their super powers together to turbo-charge this campaign. If you can’t take part, we’ll be broadcasting our pro-streamers on One25’s Twitch channel for you to tune into on the day. Cheer them on, set them forfeits and donate to their team page, with all proceeds helping courageous women make a fresh start.

Why take part?

If you join in with the sponsored challenge, GameGood is an opportunity to push yourself to the limit and see what you’re made of. Playing games may not seem that tough, but 6, 12 or 24 hours of brain power and heightened attention is no mean feat.

If you take part by holding a games event, it is a perfect opportunity to inject some extra fun and laughter into time spent with friends and family.

There are currently around 150 women trapped in street sex work in Bristol. They women are incredibly courageous yet have complex emotional and physical needs. By taking part in GameGood you can empower women to move from poverty, addiction and violence, towards safer and fulfilling lives.

  • £120 can make sure we meet women where they need help, funding a Freephone service to our lifeline outreach van for 2 months
  • £400 can give emergency help to 2 women fleeing abuse from a partner, funding casework support for food, clothes and shelter to help them restart their lives.
  • £750 can give hungry women vital nourishment, funding the drop-in meals for a whole month

Fundraising tips

Asking people for donations can be scary at first, but don’t worry! We’ve got plenty of ideas that will build your confidence and make it much easier (and enjoyable) than you ever thought possible! For fun and useful sponsorship tips click here.

If you’re collecting donations at your event, we can provide you with a collection tin and leaflets about One25 if you email events@one25.org.uk

Holding a gaming-themed bake sale, a raffle or competition of some kind can also boost your takings. See ‘gaming themed extras’ below for some more ideas.

Gaming themed extras

Take your gaming challenge to the next level by adding in some fun extras. If you’re taking part at work, school or in a social setting why not hold a gaming themed bake sale. Head here for inspiration. Or make it a fancy dress event with all your favourite game characters round the table. Add some competition and dish out prizes for the most creative costume.

Up the ante

If you’re taking part as an online gamer, why not try upping the ante with some additional challenges. You could use them as incentives for people to top up your sponsorship page if and when you conquer them! Here are some of our suggestions:

Completionist – Can you achieve 100% completion within your time limit?

Perma Death – Once you’re dead, there’s no reloading: To survive, you’ll need to play differently and not be afraid to run away!

Team Tap Out – Take it in turn with friends, or compete and beat each other’s records.

The Pacifist – Complete your chosen game without any kills and only positive dialogue choices, e.g. unlock the Pacifist ending in Undertale

The Aggressor – Choose your favourite RPG (eg. Harvest Moon) and pick only negative options during all dialogue events. Let’s see where this goes!

Gimme All The Mods – Install all the biggest mods until the game is beyond recognition. Stardew Valley is a great example with a huge variety of game-changing mods available.

At Their Mercy – Have your followers choose a game and challenge for you. Or, pick a decision drive game, such as Life is Strange or Papers Please, and do only as your followers tell you.

Sucker For Nostalgia – Can you beat your chosen childhood favourite within your chosen time?

Outside You Comfort Zone – Terrible at driving games? Avoided playing a classic that everyone raves about but never quite appealed to you? Step outside your comfort zone and play!
