Event Ended with raising $1,362 for NAACP Empowerment Programs
Summary of event
Black History Month with Raids of Love was an event raising nearly $1,400 for NAACP Empowerment Programs.
Throughout the event, the Raids of Love community shared stories in a safe space that allowed for conversations and topics that are usually seen as not acceptable because of how it makes some people feel. The conversations were respectful, honest, and helped to shed light on topics, and helped to educate people on the issues that still remain in society today.
Original Event Information
RAIDS OF LOVE HOSTING A WEEK-LONG EVENT TO SHOWCASE AMAZING PEOPLE OF COLOR AND THEIR TALENTS: Black History Month with Raids of Love
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
What is Black History Month with Raids of Love?
Black History Month with Raids of Love is a week long even that takes place between 2/21 and 2/25 2022. During the week the Raids of Love community will be working to bring attention to amazing People of Color content creators. Throughout the week, Raids of Love will host gaming events, create music, and PoC content creators to bring hype and love to their streams.
How Do Raids of Love Fit In?
The Raids of Love community will be the central force bringing the hype and attention to the event. Co-Creator Jason from AWRebels is apart of the People of Color community, and is the driving force of this month’s events.
Raids of Love partnered up with the charity organization NAACP Empowerment Programs during this event to raise money for the charity, and help people in any way they can. Throughout the week, the Raids of Love community will be focusing on talking about all the different ways people can get involved, and stay involved, with helping bring more attention and equality to the People of Color community.
During Raids of Love, Kingbullet, AWRebels, and guest streamers stream to their respective pages after creating a list of creators that should be raided. We then collaborate with our collective viewership and guide them – real people – to various creators’ pages where we encourage them to show love. Raiders share words of encouragement and compliments. Some Raiders also choose to drop gift subscriptions, personal subscriptions, stars (Facebook), bits (Twitch) or a follow. There are no bots, no hate, nor any negativity.
Black History Month with Raids of Love
During the week, the Raids of Love events will also consist of gaming & music creation. Across 4 different events, Kingbullet and AWRebels will invite fellow creators to “pregame” before the Raids of Love main event with a variety of playfully competitive games. These games include: Fall Guys, Among Us, Pokemon Unite, and others. We are still looking for guest gamers to participate.
During the music creation portions of the event, AWRebels will create a song within 2 hours. The song will include lyrics from the audience, stories for participants, and instruments chosen by the viewers during the stream. This is an experience unlike any other.
At key moments throughout the week, our activities will encourage those able to donate to the NAACP Empowerment Programs. Their efforts reflect Kingbullet and AWRebels’ desires to support all communities, and ensure everyone can enjoy the gaming world. Streamers, viewers, gamers, and gaming platforms have a responsibility to each other and Black History Month with Raids of Love will bring attention to this responsibility.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
Black History Month with Raids of Love was developed and designed by Kingbullet (twitch.tv/kingbullet) and AWRebels (fb.gg/awrebels) to bring Twitch and Facebook gaming community together. We are looking for viewers to participate, join the conversation and have some fun while raising awareness for people in the people of color community. The event is free to attend.
