Starlight Children’s Foundation Game Changers challenge on now

The Starlight Children’s Foundation Game Changers challenge is on now, with Aussie Twitch streamers doing their best to raise funds to support sick children.

Starlight hopes to raise $136,500 AUD to support its services, which include Captain Starlight, the Starlight Express Room and other hospital functions.

“Every minute of every day, a child is admitted to hospital in Australia. Now more than ever, sick and hospitalised kids need fun and positive distraction to help them cope with the loneliness and fear they are facing,” Starlight’s Partnerships Manager, Tracey Tomlin, said. 

“Game Changers who fundraise $39 will give one seriously ill child access to our vital hospital services, including the Starlight Express Room. It’s a place for children to get down to the serious business of having fun playing their favourite videos games or doing arts and crafts with Captain Starlight. Because happiness matters!”

While professional Aussie streamers are taking part, anyone is encouraged to join the cause. Interested parties can do so here.

The Starlight Game Changers initative runs over 13- 30 August.
