The second annual Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Warrior Week livestreaming charity event started with a jelly bean and ended with a record-setting response.
Warrior Week kicked off with WWP teammates Matt “SapperSteel23” Twigg and Brandi “PewPewPorcupine” Glover playing Fall Guys with WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington on WWP’s Twitch channel. For every $19 donation they received, the trio would eat a random BeanBoozled jelly bean. Some of the flavors were appetizing. The dead fish and vomit ones were not.
“They were awful, but I’d eat them again and again to show love to the Stream to Serve community, who always show up to support Wounded Warrior Project and the warriors and families we serve,” said Matt.
The event connected more than 170 content creators to WWP’s mission of honoring and empowering wounded warriors and their families.
“Watching the Stream to Serve community come together and accomplish such a level of impact during Warrior Week was amazing,” said Brandi. “Seeing everyone viewing, raiding, and hosting fellow Warrior Week streams shows how people come together to help veterans.”
Live streamers across the country used jellybeans, joysticks, and everything in between to raise support and awareness for WWP. Here’s what some of them had to say:
In addition to content creators and their followers, sponsors also participated in Warrior Week. Sony PlayStation, TechniSport®, and SteelSeries gave back to veterans through their sponsorship.
Support from Warrior Week helps provide free, life-saving programs and services to WWP warriors, like Army veteran and avid gamer Sergio Alfaro.
“I am so happy to see others working hard to raise money for an organization as an incredible as Wounded Warrior Project,” said Sergio. “I am moved by others' generosity … to help other veterans so badly in need of help.”
