SMASHED IT! Absolutely smashed it! This year’s charity stream was incredible. I set the goal for the stream at $10,000 and I thought we could probably reach that by the end of the stream or at least be very close. You smashed through the goal halfway through the stream (hitting the obligatory $6969.69 and $7777.77 on the way) and just kept on going. I raised the goal to a hopeful $15,000 but you smashed that too!
By the end of the stream, which actually ended up being 26.5 hours (thanks to breaking the $13,000 milestone), you had raised $17,057.77! The highest amount we’ve ever raised (and the donations are still rolling in*), incredible considering what everyone has been through over the last 12 months.
GeeklyInc will also be donating all proceeds from the Twitch stream from all the bits, and subscriptions etc once we have worked out what that is (this post will be updated with that figure).
A huge thank you to everyone involved. Whether you donated to The Trevor Project, appeared on the stream, or just gave us moral support in the chat, we couldn’t have done it without all of you!
Thank you to all of the GeeklyInc hosts from ‘Dear Internet’, ‘Greetings Adventurers’, ‘Transformation Sequence’, ‘Naruto Reviewto’, ‘Yer A Wizard, Harry’, ‘Welcome to St. Paxton’, ‘Vaesen: The Sight’, and ‘Random Encounters’, and an extra-special thank you to our guests from ‘Joining Call’ and the ‘S House Studio’ podcast network; who all donated their time and their talents to fill the stream with entertainment.
Thanks also go to all of the companies and people who donated items for our prize giveaways; ‘Slugfest Games’, ‘Brotherwise Games’, ‘Raw Fury’, ‘Apotheosis Studios’, ‘Greater than Games’, ‘Zoltar’s Bazaar’, Monica Ruiz, and Pat Edwards. This year we had 71 prizes over 42 separate giveaways! It was honestly difficult to fit them all in.
On behalf of everyone here at GeeklyInc, a huge thank you to you all for your support during the stream. You really stepped up to the challenge and this stream would not work if we didn’t have such an amazing community.
I’m extremely grateful to be a part of this community and I’m very proud of each and every one of you.
Thank you all, so much.
*At the time of writing this, we’re sitting at $17,197. The donation page will stay open for the rest of the year, so you can still support the cause if you would like to.
