For International Women’s Day, Station-North based video game studio Sparkypants is hosting a stream of its new game.
Sparkypants organizers are inviting women who stream and work in games to play.
Sparkyplants Social Media Manager Cristina Amaya came up with the idea to hold the fundraiser.
“We wanted to contribute positively to women during the day without women,” she said, referring to the call from organizers of the Women’s March to take the day off and avoid shopping. “Since I know there are many women who cannot afford a day off, I thought we’d support each other in other ways.”
The fundraiser, she said, is “by women for women.”
