SHARING is CARING!
I have a heart for charities! Many of my supporters do too. Donations are made through TILTIFY, a dedicated charity fund collection service which gives supporters confidence that their dollars are going directly to the charity.
The Charities we have helped raise awareness and donations through my Twitch Stream Include:
September was childhood cancer awareness month and on my Twitch cooking channel, my supporters and I were able to raise over $2000 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation! What a tremendous blessing!
Starlight delivers happiness to seriously ill children and their families at more than 800 children’s hospitals and health care facilities in the US.
Its state-of-the-art programs like Starlight Virtual Reality, Starlight Hospital Wear, and Starlight Gaming entertain, distract, and inspire hospitalized kids.
Since 1982, Starlight has brought smiles to more than 16 million seriously ill children and their families.
22 Kill One Tribe
Creates a community that raises awareness and combats suicide by empowering veterans, first responders, and their families through traditional and non-traditional therapies for suicide prevention. Every day we lose 22 veterans due to suicide and this foundation tries to prevent that. This is one of the other non-profits that we have supported.
St. Jude's Children's Foundation
This charity has truly touched my heart as well. I lost my cousin to leukemia when he was only 9 years old. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and tries to defeat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Parents never receive a bill due to donations. We proudly support this charity through our channel. They bless families across the nation. Thank you St. Jude for all that you do!
Hope For A Day
Suicide completion rates have surged to a 30-year high. Suicide has no prejudice, and each year more than 800,000 die in this silence. In the United States, over 48,180 people die by suicide every year, averaging 121 suicide completions each day. Suicide is a preventable mental health crisis. The primary obstacle to suicide prevention is the silence of stigma. Stigmas are social and cultural factors that try to dictate how we express ourselves and compel individuals to be silent on their internal experiences. Too often, we do not discuss mental health or suicide until it directly impacts our community. Proactive prevention is about creating an environment that doesn’t wait for someone to reach a point of crisis to address their mental health. In doing proactive prevention, individuals step up to take action and facilitate the conversation on mental health in their spaces.
Cure Alzheimer's Fund
This charity inspired us because in January my husband and I experienced a heartbreaking loss of his dad and his mom also has Alzheimer's as well. We were looking at additional charities to support and this one truly touched our heart. We wanted to do this in memory of a great man and other's who experience this heartbreaking disease as well. Cure Alzheimer's Fund has a team of scientists working together to find the most promising research towards a cure. They provide fast, flexible funding without red tape and lengthy grant applications.
