COVID-19 itself is a disease on its own, but the pandemic has also been affecting people’s mental health and depression. To raise awareness about this, DisneyXD star and Youtuber Parker Coppins a.k.a. Parker Games has decided to hold a fundraiser called with a dash of David Blaine’s tests of endurance.
For ten days, Parker Games will isolate himself in a 12’ x ‘9 plexi-box in his studio for 10 days. ParkerGames will have no physical contact with anyone. But, he will be live-streaming his experience and playing video games for his 1M followers. Parker hopes to encourage his watchers to donate to Take This, a non-profit org that specializes in mental health for gamers.
Here’s the start of the stream:
