I'm proud to announce that TakuChat will be hosting our first 24-hour livestream on Twitch in support of Child's Play from January 11 at noon to January 12 at noon EST. Please join our community as we play games, have fun and raise as much as we can for Child's Play in those 24 hours.
What's Child's Play?
Child's Play is a charity, set up in 2003, that is dedicated to improve the lives of children in hospitals with games, books, toys and more with the donations they receive. It's one of the more popular charities that gamers like us support through livestreams and things like PAX.
Schedule and Content
We don't have a schedule finalized yet of what we do plan to play, but it will be varied throughout the day and will depend on which members of the community we have playing or hosting. I'll do my best to make a schedule up before the 11th with the information I gather from now until then. Expect Borderlands 2, Resogun, Assassin's Creed 4, Mario and various other games across the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Wii U platforms, as well as Steam games on PC, unless someone local donates an Xbox 360 or Xbox One console for the day.
This stream will be a little different then most of the others that I've seen done before. TakuChat is a smaller website, with most of our members all in different locations. I myself am still young and could probably pull off all 24 hours for this stream (I've done it before for various other things), but we're a community who helps each other out. When the time comes for someone else to take over our Twitch stream, there will be a small interval, five minutes or less, while they get their side ready and load into Twitch.
Goal and Giveaways
With suggestion from Child's Play for a first time fundraiser, I have decided to set our initial goal to $300 and as always, the more we obtain the greater the cause! We will have game keys for indie games to give away during our stream. I do not know how many yet or which games, but one of our partners has agreed to supply us with some.
This article will be updated as we iron out a schedule of streamers and games, so be sure to check it often!
