Take your gaming to the next level by helping unwanted and abandoned cats.
There are many of us out there who could easily waste a few hours a day watching strange and funny cat videos on YouTube. After all, the internet was made for cats but what if you could put your love for cats as a gamer to good use? Cats Protection, who is a no-kill animal charity, has launched Pawsome Players to help gamers to raise funds for unwanted and abandoned cats in the charity’s care.
The charity allows players to choose what online activity they would like to participate in to help gather funds for this wonderful cause such as streaming marathons, gaming tournaments, speed running, a gaming party or some sort of gaming challenge. Cats Protection say that they know some gamers struggle with their mental health and that gaming can help them to manage some aspects – also lots of people find having a cat improves their mental health considerably, so they think by asking gamers to help save cats’ lives makes perfect sense.
Donna Forster, the charity’s Digital Marketing Officer talks about what the money raised will be used for and whatever game you wish to play, the charity will guide you through the process of it all:
“Whether it’s a solo Fortnite stream or a Super Smash Bros tournament, we can help you make the most of it. A survey among gamers shows that 58% are interested in donating money to charity and 67% would join other gamers to raise funds for charity. As cats are one of the nation’s most favorite pets, gamers could attract a substantial following by raising money for us. Funds help Cats Protection to provide food, shelter and veterinary care for thousands of unwanted and abandoned cats while they await new homes so gamers have the confidence of supporting a very worthy cause.”
Cats Protection is the UK’s leading cat welfare charity and helps over 200,000 cats through a national network of 250 volunteer-run branches and 36 adoption centers. The charity’s vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.
