The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation (SCHF) is launching a fundraising campaign this October to raise funds to help bring sick kids home from hospital sooner — and they need your help.
Enter Stream Team, an initiative that will give you the opportunity to put a smile on kids’ faces while streaming or using social media this October — whether that’s through Twitch, hosting a cooking class through Facebook or YouTube, singing on Instagram Live, or flexing some dance moves on TikTok.
So how do you actually take part? Easy. Simply sign up, set your fundraising goal, promote your stream on socials, go about your regular stream, and encourage your audience to donate to your fundraising page.
As COVID-19 continues to impact the healthcare system, Children’s hospitals and paediatric services are facing increased pressure to meet the demand posed on them by the pandemic — it’s never been a more important time to help. Donations to the SCHF help fund life-saving equipment and the best possible clinical care for sick and injured kids. The SCHF also funds services to help ease the burden on families, raise the spirits of kids undergoing life-saving treatment, and invest in programs that help make world-class care possible from the comfort of home.
The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation is calling on the entire streaming community to help make this happen. Simply go about your stream as normal, and support a great cause while doing so — what’s not to love? To find out more about how to set up your fundraiser, head over to the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation sign up page.
The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation supports Sydney’s large network of world-leading kid’s hospitals and services, including; Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Bear Cottage, Newborn and Paediatric Emergency Transport Service (NETS) and Kids Research.
The good folks behind Stream Team have also set up some handy social media kits available to download for anyone taking part, including Twitch and Twitter banners, social media tiles, streaming screens, and various other resources.
The Stream Team have also set up a Discord if you’re down to connect with and chat to an entire community of streamers joining together for a common good. You can check out the Discord here.
