The Big Day!

On Saturday, 30th March, we were lucky enough to witness our very own Danilo (known as Thinking Critically DND on Twitch) smash his third year of "Game On."

Game On is a 12+ hour gaming marathon packed with forfeits and challenges for every money milestone raised. It is a yearly event that raises money and awareness for Naomi House & Jacksplace. This incredible charity improves the lives of children and young people facing life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. Some of their services include respite care, end-of-life care, bereavement support, emergency respite, and family support.

Danilo's commitment to raising money for this fantastic cause was truly admirable. Beginning at 11 am, he started playing his two chosen games: 'Alone in the Dark'—set in 1920s Louisiana and challenging players to escape a haunted mansion—and 'Helldivers'—where players need to coordinate their actions during chaotic combat to complete objectives and avoid friendly fire casualties.

There was no delay in the donations beginning to flow in, it was clear from the offset that this stream would be a highly popular one.


The First Few Hours…

Every spin on the forfeit/challenge wheel resulted from a donation of £20 or higher. Thinking critically, DND was a great sport, and he gladly dressed up in items from a box of various costumes, ate delicious spoonfuls of baby food mixed with different hot sauces, and played his games with 'upside down' glasses on. We witnessed the much-anticipated appearance of a fan-favourite challenge, where he skilfully applied various makeup products, including lipstick, eyeshadow, and blusher, that added to his look! And, of course, the "dirty shots" also made a comeback. This year's menu was a cocktail of Worcester, soy sauce and fish juice- yum!

Within 30 minutes, the first milestone, £100, had been hit. Fortunately for the audience, but unfortunately for Danilo, it was time for him to tuck into a raw onion! He made a good effort, but after a few bites, the tears started flowing! Luckily, he had more gameplay on Alone in the Dark and Helldivers to distract him.

By the time Thinking Critically DND had been streaming for 3 hours, the next milestone of £250 had been reached! This means it was time for the return of the leg wax. Even though he mentioned the sting the wax strips left a few times, he was a fan of how smooth he was after the challenge!

More Milestones Crushed!

Just after halfway through the stream, the donations surpassed the £500 milestone mark. This made for some great entertainment, as it was time for Danilo to take on the cinnamon challenge! Clearly, he took this to the next level, as his PC crashed soon after. It must've been all the fumes from the cinnamon! Much to everyone's delight, Danilo's stream was back up and running in no time.

Various videos were played throughout the stream, which educated viewers about the importance of Naomi House & Jacksplace's work and why they need our support. It gave everyone a chance to remember the goal of the stream and what their donations were helping to achieve.

More hours of gameplay and spins on the wheel continued in the marathon until the penultimate money milestone of £750 was hit on the 11-hour mark. As a result, Danilo had the fun task of waxing his nostrils! As always, he took it like a champ, and only a few tears were shed.


The Final Challenges…

The final milestone of a whopping £1,000 was reached by the end of the stream. As they say, save the best for last. This was no exception when it came to the final challenge. It saw Danilo attempt 'Joe's Super Sour Challenge.' This consists of eating four of the most sour sweets in the world, from least sour to most sour. He smashed the challenge, and it was an entertaining watch. It's not one to miss, so make sure you check it out in the video highlight reel linked below!

This challenge brought us to the end of Game On 2024. After 12 hours of unmissable streaming content, it was time for Danilo to put his makeup away for another year.


A New Record!

The support from the viewers during this marathon was incredible. Danilo continues to make all of us at Silver Lining Convergence proud. To have such a devoted and passionate individual with whom we get the pleasure of working is just amazing.

As the donations continued to roll in after the streaming ended, the total from Game On 2024 for Silver Lining was a staggering £1,165. This was even more than last year, meaning Danilo has set a new record that he can attempt to surpass in 2025!

The total from this year is a sign of the extraordinary compassion and generosity of those who donated. If you didn't get the chance to donate during the stream but would still like to contribute to this fantastic cause, please click the link below—every contribution makes a huge difference.
