Nintendo Enthusiast’s parent company, Enthusiast Gaming, is partnering with streaming juggernaut Twitch for its Twitch Stream Aid 2020, a 12-hour charity streaming event benefiting the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO). It will feature major celebrities from gaming, music, and sports all contributing for this crucial cause. If you want to get involved as a viewer or participant, turn off your ad blockers and jump into the fun as Twitch Stream Aid 2020 begins on Saturday, March 28 at 9:00 a.m. PST. The Luminosity schedule is as follows:
To support the event, you can of course watch the stream and donate what you are able. If you are a streamer yourself, you can set up a “supporting campaign” on Twitch’s Donation page, and/or you can co-stream Twitch Stream Aid 2020. Also, if you tag your stream with “TwitchStreamAid,” Twitch might choose to feature you too!
The stream will seemingly host a wide spectrum of games, as there will be the likes of Fortnite and Uno, but then you have Call of Duty: Warzone being played by Enthusiast Gaming brand ambassador and San Francisco 49er Richard Sherman, the Philadelphia Eagles’ Darius Slay, and members of the Seattle Surge professional Call of Duty team.
But if you don’t care about video games (which… admittedly seems unlikely if you’re here), the lineup of musicians at Twitch Stream Aid 2020 is pretty bonkers. It will have talents as diverse as Garth Brooks, Ellie Goulding, Diplo, Cole Swindell, LAUV, Charlie Puth, Krewella, Die Antwoord, Jordin Sparks, Steve Aoki, Monsta X, and (G)I-DLE. Yep, even K-pop is accounted for. Here is a sampling of who else will be there:
About participating in this event, Corey Mandell, President of Enthusiast Gaming’s Entertainment Division, EG Live, shared the following:
We are honored to partner with Twitch and join forces to help support the global fight against COVID-19. Now more than ever we are committed to using our entire platform to provide support and connections for our communities. Twitch Stream Aid is an opportunity to raise funds for the World Health Organization and its fight against Coronavirus.
