In addition to the regular games critique work that we do at Not Your Mama’s Gamer, we also spend some of our free time doing charitable and outreach work. This includes working with children at local schools on games and programming and participating in games marathons to raise money for organizations like Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. 

Our current campaign, the Gaming Mammothon (get it, marathon for mammograms) seeks to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), which provides education and detection services for women across the country. Founded in 1991, the NBCF provides free and low-cost mammograms to women with limited resources and increases awareness about breast health through continuing education programs and online community support. 

As we researched organizations to support in this drive, we ultimately chose NBCF because it allocates less than 10% (each) of its budget to program administration and fundraising costs, leaving more than 80% going directly to the education and detection services.

As owners of breasts, and some of us having loved ones who have battled breast cancer, we have decided to come together to raise money to help provide early detection services to support women who might otherwise lack access to these services. Please join us in our fight to vanquish cancer. 

During the course of the event we will be using the hashtags #NYMG_G4G to share our stories and offer information about breast cancer. The marathon will take place on Saturday, February 13, 2016 and the fundraising page will be active to continue to receive donations through February 29th.

With our 2016 Gaming Mammothon we honor the women in our lives who have had the courage to "Fight Like a Girl!".
