Gaming for Good
By Big Cheese, Owner of BigCheeseKIT
When Norton Gaming reached out about participating in a Twitch charity stream, I knew it was something I wanted to do. I was very excited to be partnering with It’sHafu to support an incredible organization, Black Girls CODE. Honestly, it was a no-brainer. Even though Hafu had to tag out about halfway through our game of Halo: Combat Evolved with motion sickness, her husband DogDog and I finished up strong, and hit our goal of raising $2,500.
But wait! There is MORE! The news gets even better, because NortonLifeLock Cares matched individual donations 2:1, donating a total of $10,000 to the cause! That’s ten thousand dollars in three hours, all going to Black Girls CODE! WOO! LET’S GO! Here’s a quick clip of us hitting the donation goal!
Black Girls CODE (BGC) is a not-for-profit organization leading a global movement to establish equal representation in the tech sector. BGC empowers girls between the ages of 7-17 by introducing them to skills in computer programming and technology and is building pathways for young women of color to embrace the current tech marketplace.
These girls are the future of technology, and I was honored to use my platform to help them out, alongside Norton Gaming. We had over 277,000 live views, and I’m pretty sure every single one of them loved our acapella rendition of the Halo theme song. If not, I know for a fact they dug the freestyle I came up with!
All jokes aside, I treasure this partnership with Norton Gaming. I’m able to do what I love, and they gave me a great opportunity to help out the kids and organizations who need it the most. There will hopefully be many more in the future, so please keep a lookout for all things Norton Gaming and BigCheeseKIT.
