On May 23, six top lifestyle and gaming YouTubers will throw down in a girls-versus-guys charity livestream benefiting children’s healthcare nonprofit SickKids Foundation.
AzzyLand (12.1 million subscribers, 230 million views per month), Infinite (15.2M, 100M), Preston (27M, 400M across five channels), Brennen Taylor (3.58M, 20M), Kiera Bridget (3.54M, 8M), and Brianna (3.31M, 60M) will broadcast for two hours, and aim to raise at least $30,000 for the organization. All funds gathered will go toward helping SickKids construct new medical facilities to replace outdated buildings at its hospital in Toronto, Ontario.
“I am so proud and excited to be able to use my passion to engage my community and support this exceptional institution,” event organizer AzzyLand (aka Azra Bajrami), who’s a lifestyle, gaming, and reaction content creator, said in a statement. “Growing up in Toronto, I know how important SickKids is to children in Canada and around the world, and I wanted to do something to give back to help families in need.”
She and fellow hosts–all joining in from their respective locations, because social distancing–will spend the stream competing head-to-head in video games from the popular Jackbox Party Pack franchise. They’ll also spin a wheel to answer live audience questions.
The stream will run from 12 p.m. PST to 2 p.m. PST on AzzyLand’s channel. It’s being produced in partnership with Extra Life, an organization that helps gamers set up fundraisers in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Through Extra Life, creators have raised more than $2 million for SickKids, and more than $70 million total for the network.
