(Pause to Remember/Royal Canadian Legion)

Last week, the Royal Canadian Legion took to Twitter to announce their new Pause to Remember campaign.

The initiative asks gamers to lay down their controllers at 11 a.m. on Monday, November 11th to observe a moment of silence to honour veterans.

All you have to do to participate is stop playing, and display the “Stream overlay” on your stream at 11 a.m.

To announce your participation and encourage others to join in, use the hashtag #PauseToRemember and the controller graphic shared by the Royal Canadian Legion on Twitter.

The website for the initiative also encourages gamers to create a match with the intent of pausing at 11 a.m. so other gamers can join the movement.
