Hey all! I'm very grateful to be supported by a community of the coolest people I've ever met. With your help I've even been able to join Twitch.tv's group of signed partners.
From August 22nd through 28th I'm giving back by stepping up my game with a week of collaborative streams with other members of the XCOM community. Check out the Graphical Schedule here: https://imgur.com/a/feOvy
My biggest hope for this week is that you all have a great time, find some new people you enjoy watching, and meet some new friends in chat.
For those of you who'd like to go above and beyond, I'm asking donations this week be made to the International Medical Corps. My $1,500 fundraising goal is absolutely ludicrous in my opinion, but every time I've tried one of these weeks I've been blown away by the generosity of my community, so I'm setting the bar high!
I've chosen to support the International Medical Corps because of their work on creation of Mental Health Infrastructure in areas of the world which need it and which few other organizations have the resources to reach. You can read all about their Mental Health work here: https://internationalmedicalcorps.org/program/mental-health-psychosocial-support/
I've met countless people in my life who have struggled against mental illness, including members of my family and some of my closest friends. So many of these diseases can tear a person apart, but are beatable with proper care and medication. I'll count this week a success if one person somewhere in the world gets the help that they need and a chance to live a happier life.
Donations on this page won't show up on stream (www.twitch.tv/joinrbs) automatically, but I'll check it regularly and read any message you'd like to share.
