Original Event Information
RAIDS OF LOVE HOSTING A WEEK-LONG EVENT TO CREATE MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS AND COMBAT HATE RAIDS: Mental Health Week with Raids of Love
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
What is Mental Health Week All About?
An online effort designed to bring awareness to gamer mental health, raise funds for the Center for Suicide Awareness, and help streamers feel loved again, kicks off at 11am EDT October 25. The event will be streamed to multiple pages on Twitch and Facebook. Throughout the week, Raids of Love will host gaming events, music events, and most importantly Raids of Love events.
How do raids of Love fit in?
Raids of Love will be the central focus – more details found at www.jasonb230.sg-host.com. Streaming and Mental Health are closely connected. To entertain, put oneself on screen with video and/or voice, and engage with the world, it can be the most rewarding experience on the planet. It can also be extremely difficult, and it is because of this difficulty that Raids of Love were created.
Raids of Love’s sole focus is to bring positivity and inclusiveness to anyone and everyone in the content creator world. With Hate Raids focusing on the People of Color (PoC) and Pride (LGBTQIA+), the Love Raids’ main focus was to find people a part of these communities and bring some love, positivity, and hype back to their streams.
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.
Mental Health WEek
The Mental Health Week 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, Dead By Daylight, 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 Center for Suicide Awareness. Their efforts reflect Kingbullet and AWRebels’ desires to support all communities, especially the gaming community with regards to suicide prevention and support. Streamers, viewers, gamers, and gaming platforms have a responsibility to each other and Mental Health Week with Love Raids will bring attention to this responsibility.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Mental Health Week 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 about mental health, suicide prevention, and hate raids. The event is free to attend.
