St. Jude PLAYLIVE 2016
by Margaret Krohn on April 10th, 2016

​Internet!

Together, we have the power to make some major changes in the lives of thousands and thousands of kids and families. This year, I am going to be participating in St. Jude PLAYLIVE for the second time! Similar to what we did last year, I am going to be streaming for a FULL month in hopes that we can raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

​Here are some facts!

  • It costs $2 million dollars a day to operate St. Jude, which is primarily covered by individual contributors like you and me, averaging at around $33.00 per donation!
  • Families NEVER receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food! They even take care of the families pets! ...Because they feel that all families should be worrying about is helping their child live
  • St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90% by 2020, and we can play a big part in helping fund the research involved in making this happen!
  • Not only do they help children and families with cancer treatments and research, they also share ALL their research with other countries. They even help research vaccines for diseases like influenza! 

​My Experience with St. Jude!

​I had the opportunity to visit St. Jude with this group of amazing Twitch livestreamers and YouTubers, and it was truly a wonderful place for families to help their children receive the proper treatment, and live in a place where they can concentrate on the important things - helping their child live.

If you haven't checked out this year or last year's vlogs of my visits, please do. I warn you, I do get a bit emotional during some parts, and we weren't allowed to video tape the children or families for their own privacy. 

​What am I doing?

I'll be livestreaming at ​http://margaretkrohn.com/live to help raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

I'll also be doing a ton of giveaways, so stay tuned for those by watching the streaming and following me on my social media networks listed at the top of the website.

If you have any ideas on other ideas for milestone goals, please leave a comment on this article. :)

​How can you help?

​Most of all...THANK YOU!

​Really! Thank you all for your support and for helping these amazing kids and their families. I can't even begin to imagine what I would do if I were in their shoes. I'm just glad we have a way to help them by doing what we love, gaming.
