A once off 24 Hour Gaming Event like no other.

This Christmas 8-Bit would like to Present: GAMER’S UNITE FOR THE HOMELESS

“ICHH are delighted to have teamed up with 8 Bit and Gamers Unite for their event this coming saturday night. As a non government funded, volunteer led organisation ICHH relies on the support of the public and corporate charity partners like 8 Bit to keep our 7 nights a week outreach and advocacy service going throughout the winter months. We appreciate everyone’s support as it is vital to help us continue to be Dublin’s frontline outreach service over the Christmas period and into the New Year”
Brian – ICHH
In Dublin alone, there are currently over 5,900 adults and children trapped in emergency accommodation. Dublin Simon Community work with over 5,100 people and families who are homeless or at risk each year across Dublin, Wicklow, Kildare and Meath. It is only through the support of people, companies and fundraising events such as this, that Dublin Simon Community can continue to deliver vital services to people affected by homelessness.
 
Jonathan Beatty from Dublin Simon Community said ‘On behalf of Dublin Simon Community and the people who rely on our services each day, we would like to thank everyone involved for their support. The proceeds raised from the game streaming event this weekend will help provide people with life changing outreach, treatment, housing, homelessness prevention and education services. We are very humbled to be chosen as beneficiary’s for this fantastic fundraiser and as we continue to see more people turning to us for help, the kindness of 8 Bit Conferences and the supporters of this event will make a vital difference and enable people to move to a safe and secure place they can call home.’

Homelessness in Ireland is a huge issue and all of us here at 8-Bit and all our partners and sponsors want to do something to help tackle this ever growing problem. Christmas time especially is extremely dangerous to those on the streets and also those without regular accommodation.

In light of this we have partnered with Simon Community and ICHH to help raise awareness and much needed money for this amazing cause. We have also brought together some of the top names in the industry to help support us in this cause and so we ask you to come and follow us on this unique 24 hour experience.

On the 16th December at 12pm, 8-Bit, Allcast Irish Gamers, Elite Gamer, Buyndplay, The Alpha Zone, Guild of Nerds and many more will host a live 24 hours gaming stream playing some of the best games out there for your enjoyment. And not only that but our sponsors have graciously given us prizes for those who help support and raise awareness for this well needed cause.

We have hourly prizes from rare games to limited edition box sets, consoles to entertainment gifts and much much more, Some of the fantastic people to help out this event is The R.A.G.E, Gamestop, Gamefreeze, Redbull, Trust Gaming, Token, Player1 Gaming, Retro Ralph, The Retro Gaming Store, IMIRT, Dublin Comic Con, Retrogaming.ie, Playersxpo, Pixel Designs, Numskull, Atari, Vertagear and many many more.
