World Autism Awareness Day 2021 takes place on Good Friday, the 2nd of April. On that day, I will doing a special charity stream event to raise more awareness and money for the National Autistic Society. On this page, you will be able to find out the latest information about the event, so make sure you check back regularly!
On top of already challenging myself to play the Super Mario 64 using an Arcade Stick, plus allowing you to use Bits to activate Crowd Control, there is one more aspect of this to add to the fun! For every sub and gift sub, I will eat one bean from a pack of bean boozled!
For those who do not know what Bean Boozled beans are, they are jelly beans that can have one of two flavours depending on their colour. For example, you can get one that may be tutti-fruity, but it may also be stinky socks! So, you can expect some truly hilarious reactions with each Twitch sub, whilst also knowing that 10% of the sub will go to the National Autistic Society.
The main goal of this stream will be to raise awareness and funds for the National Autistic Society. Whilst I obviously stream in support of them all the time, we are going to push the length of the stream much further than normal. The idea of this is to gain more awareness than normal, whilst also showing the importance of autism awareness.
Fundraising will happen using the following methods:
- Donations made directly through my JustGiving page, which go straight through to the charity.
- Bits, used either for Crowd Control or just for support
- Twitch Subs, including gift subs and Twitch Prime subs
10% of all bits and subs will be donated by me through the JustGiving page on the 15th of the following month, when I receive the Twitch payout. This will be publicly visible on the JustGiving page as well, so you can rest assured that the 10% will be donated.
As part of this charity stream event, a number of amazing companies and brands are providing a range of items that will be given away on stream. Each giveaway will be “unlocked” when we reach a certain level of donations through the JustGiving page. The following is the list of sponsors confirmed so far!
