Are you headed to TwitchCon next month? JDRF Game2Give is! Read on for details, along with a recap of our Game Over, T1D fundraiser and a spotlight on a Ready Type 1 Ambassador who has danced her way into our hearts.
TwitchCon: Visit Us in the Charity Zone
We’re going to Vegas, baby! If you’ll be at TwitchCon October 20–22, stop by our booth in the Charity Zone to meet Monique and Josh from the JDRF Game2Give team and hear about the cool initiatives we have planned for the coming year.
We’ll have Captain Novolin playable on a SNES at the booth, plus we’re organizing a JDRF Game2Give community meetup during the show (email email@example.com to let us know you’re interested). And if you know other streamers who will be there and want to join in the fight against type 1 diabetes, please send them our way.
Game Over, T1D! Recap
Many thanks to the 57 fundraisers who came together in July and August to raise more than $44K during Game Over, T1D!
Topping out at $8,227.50, our #1 fundraiser for the event (and winner of the X Rocker Ocelot gaming desk grand prize) was 4Zae, a group of Team Fortress players who hold an annual memorial tournament for a teammate who had T1D. Next up was Toonafeesh, who got clever with giveaways and 3D-printed prizes to raise $7,100, followed by ResurrectionFern, who raised $5,010.49 thanks to her beautiful music and supportive community.
If you hit a fundraising milestone during the event, your prizes will ship in October. Our next fundraiser will be in November for National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM) and you can register on Tiltify starting this Sunday.
Streamer Spotlight: Arielehm
Arielehm likes nothing more than an excuse to get dressed up and have a good time. And when she combines her passion for dance with charity streaming, that’s when the real magic happens!
On Twitch, you can usually find Ariel grooving to Just Dance or playing games like The Sims while she shares her experiences with type 1 diabetes and fundraises for causes she’s passionate about. For Game Over, T1D! in August, she organized a 15-hour Just Dance relay, raking in over $1,600 for T1D research with four friends.
“Fundraising for JDRF Game2Give means supporting research that greatly improves the lives of people living with diabetes,” she tells us. “It’s difficult to imagine dancing without the medical advancements JDRF had a hand in creating, and as a T1D, I am so happy to combine my passions for a cause that makes me feel hopeful for a cure!”
