Hundreds of Streamers join forces to fundraise for Starlight Children's Foundation

The fifth annual fundraising campaign unites over 200 content creators to bring happiness to hospitalized kids

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Starlight Children’s Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to delivering happiness to hospitalized kids and their families, “presses start” on its fifth annual Stream for Starlight (S4S).

The month-long virtual fundraising campaign, which takes place in September honoring Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, invites content creators to stream and raise critical funds for Starlight.

“Hospitalization can be scary and stressful for kids, often isolated from friends and families. That’s why we strive to transform hospital experiences by providing young patients with Starlight programs that provide them with play, positive distraction and a sense of normalcy to help young patients feel more cheerful and supported during hospital stays,” said Adam Garone, CEO of Starlight Children’s Foundation. “We’re incredibly thankful and humbled by the number of streamers returning this year, utilizing their online platforms to raise funds to help us advance our mission of bringing happiness to hospitalized children and their families. We’re also grateful for the support of Razer as a returning sponsor, helping our amazing charity streaming community thrive.”

Stream For Starlight aims to raise $250,000 to help fund comfortable, fun Starlight Hospital Gowns and entertaining Starlight Gaming Stations, Starlight Virtual Reality and Toy Deliveries to children’s hospitals and facilities nationwide. Since 2019, Stream For Starlight has raised more than $1.8 million.

Over 200 streamers from all categories on Twitch are joining the campaign – including LEGO building with Amish_Ace, gaming with Smirky, crocheting and crafts with NinePointFive, and many more.

The “Press Start” Event will kick off Stream For Starlight on September 1st at 4 p.m. PDT on Starlight’s Twitch channel. Viewers will have the opportunity to meet the 2024 Starlight Ambassadors.
