Would you be interested in a Skaianet Charity Event?
Basically, we want to hold a huge Skaianet charity event (through something like Child’s Play) so we can raise money for those who really need it. As great of an idea this might be, we want to gauge what you all think first. If we get enough people interested, we’ll definitely start planning…
Let it be known that I am hella interested in Kyle’s Skaianet charity event idea and I can be relied on to help out a ton in putting it on if it’s for the right charity.
I would be most eager to help with the event if its beneficiary were GiveWell or one of the charities that GiveWell has identified as an excellent giving opportunity in effective international aid.
I learned about GiveWell this year and it has changed how I look at charity. GiveWell’s mission is to investigate and identify the most effective humanitarian giving opportunities in the world. They are doing the best work in philanthropy research and should be considered one of the most deserving charities of our time. I would jump at the chance to help direct funds and awareness towards them.
(This is just my personal preference. Ideally, the volunteers for this event will discuss it and choose a beneficiary that we can all whole-heartedly support.)
I have a good microphone, the necessary tools for game streaming and video chat, a love of dramatic reading, an even greater love of Homestuck lore, and most importantly, spare time! Outside of my part-time job, I am AVAILABLE TO HELP.
But I can’t be the only one. A charity streaming event is complex and requires a team effort. It won’t happen without a few more brave volunteers.
Fellow Stuckies, I urge you. If you want to make this event a reality, then STEP FORWARD. Talk to Kyle. Offer your help. Offer your ideas. Be a part of it. Do this thing. Make it hapen.
