Several Assassin’s Creed communities and content creators come together to raise funds for the World Federation for Mental Health.

Several video games were released in 2020, such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but far more have been delayed or pushed out of their release windows. This is no surprise and not least because of it The impact of COVID 19 on the gaming industry, but perhaps more importantly, its impact on the lives of the people who make up the gaming industry. With this in mind, several members of the larger Assassin’s Creed community have come together to raise funds and raise awareness for the mentally ill.

The 2021 Assassin’s Creed Community fundraiser titled “Assassins in Need” will support the World Federation for Mental Health in collaboration with several content creators and community members. The Ones Who Came Before, a highly respected Assassin’s Creed community, started this fundraiser and has partnered with several others, including AccessTheAnimus and 20+ content creators among other things to raise money and mental health awareness.

The money will be donated to the aforementioned mental health organization, which is an “international, multi-professional, non-governmental organization”. It was founded in 1948, around the same time as the United Nations and The World Health Organization. The World Federation’s website sets out three main goals: to raise public awareness of the importance of mental health while improving understanding and attitudes about mental disorders, promoting mental health and preventing mental disorders, and care, treatment and recovery of people with mental disorders.
