In celebration of International Women’s Day on Monday, Discord is partnering with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to support the widespread effort to cure breast cancer. It’s a disease that one in eight women will suffer from in their lifetime.

Starting today and lasting through all of next week, Discord is teaming up with Ubisoft and Assassin’s Creed Sisterhood. They are a group of female gamers dedicated to empowering other female players. They’re also partnering with numerous female-focused gaming servers such as GameHERSmissesmae, and TheHotdish to raise funds for the BCRF and support women across the globe.

“Together, these community leaders will be doing everything from giveaways, to art streams and eating spicy squid flakes to help work towards a collective goal of $50,000,” Discord says.
