The Make-A-Wish foundation has granted over 550,000 wishes to critically ill children around the world, and they have recently reached out to the streaming community to help grant even more wishes in the future. Last year's The World Streams for the Wishes fundraiser raised over 550,000 dollars and was successful in over 100 countries. This year's event will continue in April, allowing anyone to stream for charity under the banner The World Streams for the Wishes.
The Foundation invites streamers to join content creators around the world in order to grant a wish to children in need. Over 50 countries have received a Wishes grant, and last year The World Streams for the Wishes fundraiser raised over $125,000.
Streamers may assist by livestreaming themselves playing games at any time during the month of April. These streams may be in any language and are not restricted to a particular platform. The foundation accepts donations via Tiltify, and provides a content creator toolkit to aid in the creation process.
Tears of the Kingdom's vehicle building might have been inspired by BOTW's fanmade flying machine in The Legend of Zelda.
Nowadays, many children make gaming wishes, and doing so helps them bond, connect, and flourish through entertainment. Since 2021, Make-A-Wish has given over 1,000 gaming computers and 1,600 consoles to wish children. Some have even received a mobile phone.
The Wishes is a very generous organization that works for children who need a little bit of magic, and it would be fantastic to see them raise even more money this time around.
