We’d like to congratulate ConPlus! Their Con+2 charity livestream, where they played games and gave away an absolute ton of gaming prizes (including several boxes of the Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit!) was a smashing success. They raised nearly 4,000 pounds for the Butterfly Project, a charity which works to uses games to help children in disadvatanges communities learn the skills they need to become agents for change where they live.
