GAMER JESSE WILL BE DOING A CHARITY STREAM FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD

FEATURING SAILOR MOON GAMES

PRESS RELEASE (NJ) FEB 6, 2017 – New Jersey gamer and geek columnist Jesse Parrino launched his Twitch profile in 2016 and has gained a reliable following. He often takes the time to revisit older games that have fallen out of the zeitgeist. February 25, 2017, he’ll be streaming as on Twitch @vampricyoda while playing a handful of the Sailor Moon retro games spanning the SNES, Game Boy, Sega Genesis, and Game Gear from roughly Noon to 8 PM Eastern (https://www.twitch.tv/vampricyoda) as a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood. Parrino’s cohosts will be @ingdamnit and @buckysnowangel (Twitter usernames).

“I decided to do a monthly charity marathon stream at the end of each month after seeing how many public works Trump is pulling funds from. I decided after the Woman’s March that Planned Parenthood would be a good lace to start, and Sailor Moon has been long associated with feminism in nerd culture so I thought it would be a good place to start.”

As they stream, the link to the Planned Parenthood site will come up about once every 30 minutes and they’ll be talking about it with instructions on how to donate to them directly, to avoid processing any of the funds personally. If users click the donation link, they’ll be taken to the Planned Parenthood page which allows for a variety of places your funds can be allocated: PP Federation of America (the main umbrella), PP Global, or to a remaining local clinic which hasn’t been shut down yet.

Gamers like Parrino and his cohosts battle against the toxic environment within the gaming and comics communities. They share information that may be useful to people who misunderstand what funding cuts to places like Planned Parenthood really mean since there’s tremendous misinformation and lies out there. Planned Parenthood not only treats women for family planning services and cancer screenings, but they cater to a variety of health needs like cholesterol testing and flu vaccines. They also offer check ups and treatment for men like male infertility and testicular cancer screenings.
