- How did you get started in charity streaming and what is your favorite part about streaming for charity?
I’ve always been someone who loves working with charities, while I was in my tech school for the Air Force I used to volunteer at a local animal shelter and I would help a bunch of the races and walk 5ks, 10ks, and so on. Since I got hurt it’s harder for me to physically go places to help out, so with charity streaming it’s been a wonderful change to be able to support the charities I care about while working with my stream.
- Recently, you raised money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society via their Stream To End MS program. Tell us about that event and one of your favorite moments:
With the Streamer Sphere Sims Against MS event, I set up a four-day event with one of my moderators and we played Stardew co-op Fri-Mon. During that time period, I had a goal of $500 for the whole weekend. Within the first 2 hours, we were already up to $750 and the community showed a ton of support for the campaign. We had some fun charity incentives such as giving trash to the next seen villager or naming animals after donators. It was a lot of fun and it turned out to be a hit.
- Do you have any tips or advice for other charity streamers?
Do your homework, if you are raising money for a campaign you don’t know much about…do plenty of research on the charity and know how to answer questions about the charity. If you get caught having no information you begin to lose your credibility as a charity caster. Be able to talk about the charity for a few minutes every hour or two of the stream. But definitely care about the charity you are raising money for, because if it isn’t an authentic feeling about the charity it will come back to bite you.
