Popular grass roots organization StreetPass NYC and local video game charity organization S.O.S. Gamers are excited to announce an exclusive partnership to facilitate upcoming charitable video game events in New York City.
“One of our major goals of StreetPass NYC is to promote a more active and personable gaming experience to combat portrayal of the stereotypical anti-social gamer image persisting in popular media.” said Jordan White, Founder and Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. “We feel giving back to the community contributes a large part in challenging such stereotypes and S.O.S. Gamers shares a lot of the same ideals and goals with that in mind.”
The first major event partnership will be a charitable BBQ event in New York sometime by next August which will have a small entry fee to gain funds for an undetermined charity cause. S.O.S Gamers will be providing the venue and food while StreetPass NYC will be providing the entertainment and gaming events.
Future plans include assisting each other with various activities at the upcoming New York Comic Con this October and to fulfill S.O.S. Gamers Initiative, Support Our Students.
