We were so excited to attend TwitchCon this year in San Diego. We spent three days with this kind, fun, and creative community, learning about them and sharing Starlight’s mission of delivering happiness to seriously ill kids.
Our team met many of our Stream For Starlight streamers, who’ve helped us raise over $30,000 this month! We also met many new friends who are huge supporters of our mission. It was a weekend we will never forget.
Here are a few of our top TwitchCon moments:
In the beginning of September, The8BitDrummer was one of the first streamers to support S4S, drumming while fundraising with his streaming community. During his campaign, The8BitDrummer drummed his way to over $4,500! He and his wonderful wife, Chiata, stopped by the Starlight booth and when they found out that $5,000 could place Starlight Gaming Center at a local hospital in South Carolina, they immediately donated the rest of the money to hit that milestone. Super Stars!
Team Bone-In, 13 streamers who love to cook, had multiple streams over the month, raising nearly $8,500 for Starlight. The Bone-In crew was just as fun in person as they were on screen, and meeting them in person felt like a celeb sighting IRL!
We’re obsessed with this hot pink-haired streamer! She raised more than $771 for seriously ill kids and stopped by to check out Starlight VR and see where her fundraising dollars are going!
MisterMez took the day off from playing Mario Maker 2 for TwitchCon and brought his S4S shirt with him for this special occasion! His generous community raised $1,040, helping him level up to being one of our top individual fundraisers.
During September, Quiltoni took a break from her regular stream of creating pixel quilts to engage her community with a Twitch Sings stream to raise $725 for Starlight! When she stopped by the booth, we were overjoyed to meet this incredible woman.
From the moment that NachoPandaa walked into our booth, his passion and dedication to making an impact could be felt by everyone. He’s already raised $165 for S4S, and he told us he can’t wait to do more! Also, his shirt is very on brand.
We had hundreds of conversations during our three days at TwitchCon. All were invited to try out our Virtual Reality headsets that are transforming the hospital experience for seriously ill kids. It was heartwarming to see our programs truly resonate with those who stopped by. Here are a few new streamers we met who stole our hearts:
Angels_Piano (a professional pianist! swoon) stopped by on Day 3. She said she was a big fan of our mission and couldn’t wait to S4S!
11-year-old Parker, aka Dwn_Range, would’ve played Starlight Virtual Reality all day if his parents would’ve let him! He’s an advocate for other gamers who have Autism and is working to spread awareness through his gaming community.
LindorMD calls himself the Chief of Streaming. It may look like a cosplay outfit, but Vishal is a real doctor who has a passion for charity streams. This doc knows how to have fun!
FavoriteGalJen made a quick stop by the Starlight booth and was excited to get her S4S started. Her desire to make a difference and get involved was infectious and we are so excited to see what she does through her stream.
