Serreph is Dreamscape’s Own Guardian Angel for Charity Stream
Prospering Shares His Passion for Dreamscape’s Charity Stream
We have all heard the saying, find something you love to do and you will never have to work a day in your life. Unfortunately for most of us this dream is not a reality, but for Javante Anderson it is. Anderson, better known as Prospering, is a lifelong gamer who turned his passion into a successful career two and a half years ago.
Life is About Balance
Prospering recalled, “In the beginning you really got to buckle down and grow your brand, but also find that balance between educating [yourself], fitness, and eating well. In the gaming industry, or any industry, I believe self-care is extremely important.” Anderson’s positive outlook and don’t give up attitude, as well as his impressive gaming skills has all contributed to his success as a streamer.
The streamer has not only grabbed the attention of fellow gamers, but caught the eye of a very well known company. “I am still currently sponsored by DTS. They are like family to me,” Anderson explained. The company celebrated Prospering’s huge achievement of reaching 10,000 wins in a little game called Fortnite by gifting him a large custom made canvas displaying the gamer with his historic milestone.
WIN, WIN, WIN
In addition to Anderson’s colossal amount of wins, he holds the #1 Ranked Spot for PC Wins Worldwide in Fortnite. “Fortnite is just such a unique and beautiful game in all aspects. It does require a lot of time to put in to play to get a certain hand on it, but once you do put that little bit of time in it is such a beautiful game,” he explained. Prospering also currently holds the #1 Ranked Spot for PC DUO Wins on Fortnite.
Nothing Beats a Smile
If you ask the highly skilled gamer what his favorite part about streaming is you might be surprised by his answer. “My most favorite part is the moments I share with people. The smiles, the laughter, the very unique moments that bring joy to everyone, I love that the most,” Prospering described. This joy is apparent in every single one of his streams and makes Anderson the perfect candidate to host a Charity Stream.
For his second official Charity Stream, Prospering is teaming up with Dreamscape Foundation to raise money for individuals with sensory disabilities. He explains, “If I have ways to give back, I would like to take those opportunities just as much as I would to further myself.” Join Dreamscape Foundation and Prospering for an action-packed Charity Stream this Friday, January 15, starting at 11 am EST. In Anderson’s own words, “I am going to be playing a lot of Fortnite. If anyone else wants to join in, feel free to come get some games in.”« PreviousNext »
Another Gamer Making a Difference in a Time of Need
In the online realm of gaming and streaming, people all around the world connect, play, and chat every day. So, with everything happening in the world, to them, there is still a place they can escape and find a bit of normalcy and hope. Some of these gamers, like Twitch Streamer Taterchimp, see it as much more. Rather than a place for people to escape to or socialize safely, Taterchimp took it upon himself to use it as an opportunity… An opportunity to make a difference and help those in need during this worldwide crisis.
A Chance to Make a Difference
On May 1st, Taterchimp set up a 13-hour Charity Stream, to raise money for The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. Setting his goal at $250, he made a promise to personally donate an additional $100 should the goal be surpassed and donations hit $500. Playing Final Fantasy XIII, he offered his viewing community a fun and exciting blind playthrough with some awesome incentives to go with it! Taking things to another level to ensure there was something for everyone to enjoy, he had donation incentives that let the viewers take control. All donors had the chance to change up the scene to his Pet Cam, pick his game character, mess with the music, or request a story or personal hand drawing to be done live! He even went as far to provide multiple game change incentives for those who may not have been fans of the game or wanted to mix it up and see something new.
He wanted everyone to feel welcome and use it as a chance to bring family and friends together in a fun, but safe way. In Taterchimp’s blog post announcing the stream, he had this to say, “Bring your family, bring your friends, and please bring random stories and jokes to help me keep my sanity.” Encouraging everyone to take part regardless of their ability to donate. In this great time of need, he wanted to support efforts helping save children, but also do his part in helping everyone. As we all know, staying in and staying safe is great, but not the easiest thing for everyone. Finding new ways to pass the time or keeping a routine can definitely be a struggle! That is why Taterchimp wanted this event to be for everyone because while he may have had a dedicated cause for the funds raised, he knew there were more ways to help people than just donating.
At the conclusion of the event, Taterchimp successfully surpassed his donation goal of $250 and currently stands at $365 raised! Even though the event itself has come to a close, you can still donate on Taterchimp’s Twitch Channel, as well as watch the recap on Extra Life. So, for anyone looking to give, it’s not too late to help!
An Extra Hand with Extra Life
Taterchimp may have orchestrated and hosted this event, but he had some support in doing so. The organization Extra Life has been helping gamers make a difference for years. Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. They are constantly working with new gamers and you can keep up with them and what’s coming next on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube. Interested in being a part of one yourself? There is no requirement or minimum follower limit needed to bring your fundraising idea to them for help.
We want to give a big THANK YOU to Taterchimp and Extra Life for all of their hard work and selflessness! It is because of individuals and organizations like these, we are able to make such a difference to so many all over the world!« PreviousNext »
