RabbitHouse Reaches New Heights for Dreamscape’s Charity Stream
“Do you always need a reason to help somebody?” –Ash, PokémonRabbitHouse’s love for video games led him to watch gaming streams. “When I was a kid there was this group called the Speed Gamers, and they were trying to complete all the Pokémon games that were out at that point,” he shared. “I thought it was the coolest thing ever to go through all of that and raise money for St. Jude while they do it.” Eventually, Connor’s passion and interest in charity streams was too strong to ignore. “It got to a point where I was thinking, I could do this,” he recalled. “I’m confident in my ability to put together something like this, and really do something special.” As a charity streamer, Cunningham hopes that each stream he does is a little bit bigger than the last one to the point where he can eventually really make a big difference.
Strength in Numbers“The decision to start streaming as my way to make a difference comes from my thought process of what can I do that is the most immediate that can make the most impact right now?” RabbitHouse explained. “I have this moment that I am in right now and I won’t get this moment back, so what can I do to do the most with this moment?” Connor admits that the experience of COVID-19 last year left him frustrated in wanting to make a positive change, but feeling like he couldn’t make a difference. “The way you are going to do it is by coming together with other people, and coming together makes you all much stronger than you could be individually,” he stated. “I want people to know that they can be a part of something like this.”
Sky’s the LimitCunningham has been defying the odds since day one. “I was born with a congenital heart defect called transposition of the great vessels, so basically when I was a baby all the tubes in my heart were kind of tied up in the wrong way” he described. “If I had been born 20 years earlier the surgery that fixed me wasn’t around at that point, so I wouldn’t have even made it.” Being born with this defect caused Connor to perceive himself as delicate or fragile, but as he got older his perception changed. “I made it through being a kid and I’m still here. I have a shot here,” RabbitHouse shared. “I’m at a point now where I am playing with house money, and everything from day one has just been icing on the cake.”
Battle Royale for AccessibilityFor his third official Charity Stream, RabbitHouse will be teaming up with Dreamscape Foundation this Sunday, February 21, from 7 pm – 10 pm EST to raise money for accessibility for individuals living with disabilities. “Unfortunately, a lot of people in that type of situation are brushed aside in today’s world,” Connor shared. “It’s an opportunity to step up and help out in a way that I haven’t done yet, so I am really excited to work with Dreamscape Foundation on this.” Cunningham will be playing the Battle Royale game Eternal Return. Time to put your strength, ability and wit to the test. « PreviousNext »
ThePhatBandit’s Month-Long Charity Stream Marathon
also known as ThePhatBandit to his Twitch community, is teaming up with the Dreamscape Foundation for a Charity Stream event like never before. Erick first got into streaming on Twitch through his longtime hobby of gaming. As a regular gamer, he found out about Twitch and started watching other streamers and personalities. After a while, he realized he had the resources to create a channel of his own, so why not? To him, it was more of a way to play games with his friends and connect with a broader community. His only goal was to have fun, make people laugh, and make even more friends.
An Open Community that Became FamilyThePhatBandit Twitch Channel is open to everyone looking to have a good time and interact with new people. Whether you are a longtime viewer or just checking it out for the first time, he is quick to invite you to join in and play along with him online. Erick strives just to be himself and network with people around the world he would never have met otherwise. Aside from just playing games, he is very vocal with his community. They talk a lot and consider it like therapy, talking about good days, bad days, whatever, and just hashing things out. When I asked him what he enjoyed most about streaming, he replied, “The comradely and the relationships we built just through our community and other streamers’ communities.” He went on to explain people had tuned in to watch the stream, never knowing them before, and eventually became friends he talks to daily. To Erick, Twitch is a place for people to have fun, play the games they love, and make new friends that’ll last a lifetime.
Familiar TerritoryCut from the same cloth, he has been a longtime believer in charity work and helping those in need. So much so, his full-time job is with a nonprofit organization we are proud to call a neighbor here in Naples, FL. The Friends of Foster Children Forever is an organization dedicated to fulfilling the needs of every child who enters or is at-risk of entering the foster care system throughout Collier County. Their primary focus for the children is to help them reach their full potential in life through education and enrichment opportunities, as well as simply enjoying being a kid. One of Erick’s favorite outreach events was when they took a large group of 40+ to a theme park. He remembers the look of pure happiness on each of their faces. Not because it was just another enjoyable day to a group of kids, but he knew for some it was their first time at a theme park and for others, their first time leaving their home town. Erick loves what he does and is excited to be able to combine his passion with his channel as a way to give back and help even more people.
The When, What & Why?Now, as I mentioned, this is a charity stream event like never before for Dreamscape! You may be wondering what is so different this time around? Well, ThePhatBandit has decided to step things up a bit! Rather than streaming for a day or 2, he will be turning this charity stream into a month-long Marathon Event!! Beginning on November 15th and ending on December 15th, Erick will be raising funds to help with our holiday efforts. All proceeds will be used to support various children and families in need throughout the Holiday Season. From adopting families to donating to shelters and foster homes alike. As always, we will be giving thanks to our generous supporters with thank you gifts and entries into our raffle drawings. The awards will be on a tier-based system, ranging from t-shirts and steam keys to Funko Pops and your favorite Call of Duty collectible character figures. Not stopping there, we will send a couple of lucky winners away with our raffle prizes of various Amazon gift cards, with the grand prize being $100! See our prize chart here: All donations are welcome and beyond appreciated, but are never required! Erick encourages everyone to join in, no matter his or her ability to support. His community is a place for everyone to have fun and join in on the games and conversations. He will be playing various video games, including the new Call of Duty Modern Warfare! Additionally, he will be opening up several discussions around the charity, which we are supporting, and give you his honest thoughts on the matter. As Erick mentioned during his interview, “there is always a way to help out, even if it’s just educating and informing people on a need.” To keep up with Erick and join in his community, we encourage everyone to follow his Twitch Channel, Twitter, Instagram, and to check out his organization, The Friends of Foster Children Forever! « PreviousNext »
The Game Docs Take on Dreamscape’s next Charity Stream
The Early Days of Youtube and TwitchWhile attending college at Seton Hall University, before Bryan and Tom took the Game Docs name, Tom went to Italy for a study abroad program. While he was there, since he didn’t have his daily fix of gaming, he went to Youtube and started watching Youtube channels dedicated to gaming. After watching for a while, he had an idea and thought to himself “I could do this”. Then started thinking of who could join him and after a phone call to his friend Bryan, he knew he found his partner. Thus, the Game Docs Youtube Channel was born! In 2017, after about 2 years of consistently adding new content to their channel, Bryan began pushing the pair towards Twitch. They decided it would be best to ease their way into the transition. So, little by little, they started phasing out their content on Youtube and increased their time streaming on Twitch. Today, they focus almost entirely on Twitch, except for adding some highlight footage to their old Youtube Channel.
The Game Docs and Charity StreamsTom and Bryan have always been up for helping out those in need. Before they became the Game Docs, they did their first few events for Extra Life. Extra Life helps bring thousands of gamers worldwide together, to help support their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Once the Game Docs were founded, they completed their first official stream for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Overall, in a 3-year time frame, they raised $3,000 for Extra Life and over $1,500 for St. Jude’s. An incredibly generous gesture for kids of that age. Additionally, this isn’t their first time working with the Dreamscape Foundation. Our founder, Joseph Sehwani, also attended Seton Hall University and met them first as friends. Sehwani used to join them on occasion to play some video games or just hang out. Dreamscape Foundation, being in its early days, was eager to start doing some fundraising events and partnered with the two for its first Charity Stream events. Both the Dreamscape Foundation and the Game Docs are excited to bring it back to the beginning again on Saturday, April 20th, with a much higher goal of $600 in mind! But overall, the main focus as always is to make sure everyone has fun and enjoys themselves!
Where are the Funds Going?This time around, the Dreamscape Foundation is looking to help Audrey Pickett. Audrey is a local and dedicated member of the Hannibal YMCA in Missouri, who has lived her entire life in a wheelchair. She has been attending personal training sessions at the YMCA for about 6 months now and has seen a tremendous improvement to her physical and mental strength! The biggest benefit besides just gaining some muscle in her upper body and “toning up for bikini season” as she likes to joke, is she can stand noticeably longer when she has the opportunity to stand out of her chair. This was a major motivator for Audrey and it made her want to continue with her training at the YMCA. Our campaign is going to help her pay for additional training sessions and if any is left over, to helping the YMCA obtain more accessible equipment to benefit all their disabled members.
Giveaways for our Selfless Donors!We are no stranger to charity streams, and we a super appreciative to our donors! In the past, we’ve given away Amazon gift cards along with streamer specific prizes. This event is no different! If you donate at least $10 during our stream on Tiltify, you will be entered to win a Super Smash Bros Gamecube controller, along with a mystery amiibo figure! Take a look at our entire prize list, and the gift cards we will be raffling out to our wonderful community: We urge everyone to tune in this Saturday, April 20th starting at 12 pm EST, to the Game Docs Twitch Charity Stream event and support this amazing girl! Every little bit goes a long way and all we can ask is to give what you can! Even if you cannot afford to donate at this time, we would still love to see you all there to enjoy the fun and just have a great time! « PreviousNext »
