June is a very important month for us and our staff here at Jackbox Games. This year, in celebration of Pride month and Juneteenth, we’ll be donating to key charitable organizations over the course of two live streams.
During our usual Party Club stream, we’ll be featuring four charities and donating $20,000 across these four organizations. We encourage you to join us during the stream and donate what you can to these organizations!
