Autistic Gaming Initiative TODAY!

Do you appreciate autistic people who love video games?
How about autism organizations that make an effort to support them?


If you haven't heard about the Autistic Gaming Initiative yet, you're in for a treat. Autistic gamers from all over the Internet are teaming up, playing games live once a month to raise money for the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network and the Autism Women's Network. These charities are autistic-approved organizations that advocate for the interests of autistics, while providing them with much-needed resources.


Today begins the second Autistic Gaming Initiative live stream event, running from 3pm EST today to 3pm EST tomorrow.

This is the craziness that happened during last month's streams:


Steph Diorio                                     Alyssa Huber / Gingersnaspie
                         kiotsukare                                                      Chaz

Each gamer has their own time slot before passing the baton to the next gamer. Check out the schedule to see who's streaming!
