The British Red Cross is running Operation Anti-Loneliness and there are 10 days to sign up.
If you do, then you’re stepping forward to stream a gaming session. There are three difficulty levels; casual for a 5-hour stream, hardcore for a 10-hour marathon and pro for an incredible 20 hours of screen time.
You don’t need to have any experience, just a willingness to help out and a readiness to take potentially such a long gaming session as seriously as you should. Even though you can break your stream into bits, 20 hours is a long time.
The British Red Cross have a Discord server where you can go, ask about it, talk to people and make friends.
There’s even a section on their site about the project.
You don’t have to play a computer game; you can stream a tabletop RPG, a jigsaw or anything you like. Provided, remind the BRC that it’s legal for you to do so.
The charity can’t help promote your stream (it’s the other way around; you’re helping to promote them), but if you do take part, you do get help setting up, fundraising and promotion tips, graphics, resources, and a chance to win some merch.
Operation Anti-Loneliness not only recognises that people of all ages have a real challenge with their loneliness that should be taken seriously and that gaming, and the community around us, can help.
