This Saturday, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re bringing our community and a whole lot of other folks together to do what we do best, #stayhome, play games, and support a good cause. Twitch Stream Aid – a 12-hour charity stream benefitting the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO powered by the United Nations Foundation – will feature some of the biggest names in gaming, music, and sports with special guests and lots of feel good moments for the greater good.
Twitch Stream Aid kicks off this Saturday, March 28 at 9:00 AM PST on twitch.tv/twitch. Throughout the day, we’ll host competitions featuring Fortnite and UNO, with talent such as Drew Taggart from The Chainsmokers, Lost Kings, Joe Jonas, and more who will be playing games throughout the show as part of our Twitch Rivals program. You’ll also see incredible musical performances from Ellie Goulding, Diplo, Cole Swindell, LAUV, Charlie Puth, Krewella, Die Antwoord, Jordin Sparks and more during breaks in the action. Plus, some of your favorite athletes will stop by, including Lando Norris, Aly Raisman, Greg Norman, and Richard Sherman with Darius Slay live on Twitch. Last (but certainly not least!), we’ll feature YOU! Throughout our show, we’ll be combing Twitch to feature streamers who are live on Saturday and pull them into our broadcast. For a chance to be featured during Twitch Stream Aid, go live on March 28 and tag your stream with the “TwitchStreamAid” tag so we can find you.
