“Every year, almost 800,000 people die of suicide and there are almost 20 times as many attempts.” -World Health Organization
On World Suicide Prevention Day, Dashing Nerds will be attending the Worldwide Suicide Prevention Day Charity Event at Stomping Grounds Game Shop in Chesterfield, MI. The event takes place on Sunday, September 10th from 10 am – 10 pm in support of ReLife! ReLife is an organization that raises funds to help support those who struggle with suicidal thoughts, survivors of attempts, and those who’ve lost someone to suicide.
“Through live-streaming, we hope to educate and entertain while raising funds for various programs related to suicide and mental health assistance.” -ReLife
At the event, Dashing Nerds will be hosting a 2-hour game session from 2 pm – 4 pm in Stomping Grounds’ Venture Inn. Admission is just $5, and the event proceeds will all go to ReLife’s phenomenal mission. Stomping Grounds has also graciously offered additional prize drawings to raise more for the cause, so bring a generous attitude and some extra cash. The events and festivities will be hosted on both Twitch at Stomping Ground Game Shop’s Channel: HERE and on Mixer at Infinite Power’s channel: HERE.
Below is the event info from Stomping Grounds about the charity:
“Stomping Grounds will be open from 10am to 10pm on Sunday, September 10th
to promote the ReLife charity event being organized by Infinite Power.
September 10th is World Suicide Awareness Day. Infinite Power will be
