Frame Fatales Raises $110,000 for the Malala Fund

Frame Fatales, the Games Done Quick spin-off for women and non-binary speedrunners, recently concluded its summer event, Flame Fatales, successfully raising a total of $110,000 for the Malala Fund. This online event took place from August 13 to 20 and showcased over 60 captivating speedruns, including popular titles such as Stardew Valley, Tears of the Kingdom, and Pokemon Scarlet/Violet.

The Flame Fatales event managed to gather a staggering $110,835 donation for the Malala Fund, a commendable non-profit organization that works tirelessly to promote education for girls worldwide. The fund focuses on advocating for policy changes, securing resources, and supporting girls in receiving secondary education. Additionally, it aims to amplify the voices of activists who are champions of change.

Flame Fatales not only raised funds for a noble cause but also aimed to amplify the presence and achievements of female and non-binary speedrunners within the gaming community. Throughout the week-long summer event, viewers were treated to over 60 exciting events, including the first-ever appearance of Tears of the Kingdom at a Games Done Quick event, a thrilling three-player run of PlateUp!, and captivating gameplay from titles like Pokemon Scarlet, Stardew Valley, Final Fantasy X, and Resident Evil Village.

For those who missed the excitement, all the runs from Flame Fatales are now available for viewing on Games Done Quick’s YouTube channel.

Frame Fatales organizes two events each year, one in winter and one in summer. The next event, Frost Fatales, is scheduled for March 3-10, 2024, and aims to raise funds for the National Women’s Law Center. This non-profit organization advocates for women’s and LGBTQ+ rights.

On the other hand, the next main Games Done Quick event, Awesome Games Done Quick, takes place during the winter season. Additionally, GDQ will also be running spin-off events at TwitchCon and PAX West this year.
