War Child UK | LONDON, OCTOBER 6, 2023
Lomadiah, Koji, GeekyCassie, AyeforScotland, DonaTarte and ChocolateKieran will join forces for a marathon stream this Sunday, in support of War Child UK.
Hosted by Shay Thompson and produced by award-winning London & Los Angeles-based creative production agency ADVNCR Productions, creators will play a selection of multiplayer games, whilst interacting with the audience to take on challenges and suffer forfeits… all for a good cause!
Alongside the livestream, War Child will be running an online auction, where fabulous gaming items and merchandise can be won.
This activity marks the finale of a 3-week fundraising event called the Power Up Cup. War Child UK has been running alongside its sister agencies in Netherlands, Germany and Sweden to try to raise £50,000.
For more than two decades, War Child has worked tirelessly with children, young people and their communities and are committed to ensuring children affected by conflict are safe, heard, and have bright hopeful futures.
Notes to editors:
War Child UK is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. For more than two decades they’ve been driven by a single goal – for no child’s life to be torn apart by war. They aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and stay to support them through their recovery – keeping them safe, helping them learn and cope with their experiences, and equipping them with skills for the future. They understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and put them at the centre of the solution and campaign for changes to policies and practices to support children in conflict, working with children and young people themselves to demand their rights. Together with their partners they deliver vital, life-saving work in 15 countries across Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and Latin America.
