We are gamers that want to play games for worthy causes.
Now we are playing games each week at twitch.tv/darkowlgames
Each fall we put on a 24 hour tabletop games marathon raising money for charity. To date we have raised $7793 and 466 lbs of food over the last three years.
Dark Owl Games is a group of gamers that host events to raise money for local charities in the Calgary area.
Most people play games to have fun, some for the challenge of winning. A group of us have decided there is another reason to game, to help local charities that can really use the help.
Follow us on Twitter or Facebook to find out first when the fall marathon is going to take place.
“Play board games for 24 hours straight you say, what could possibility go wrong…” -Chris Carter
This all began out of the simple desire to help the local community. There are already a number of great charities locally. The goal became how to support these charities and have a bit of fun in the process. Borrowing the idea from Child's Play and International TableTop Day. We set about organizing a gaming marathon to raise money for charity. To make it interesting we decided to do it for 24 hours straight. Now 3 years later and four events, we are started to do weekly live streaming on twitch.tv/darkowlgames.
