Add Epilepsy Awareness
November is Epilepsy Awareness Month, and we should add at least one Charity to be able to help. Epilepsy affects 8.4 out of every 1,000 people every day and there is no cure at the moment. Epilepsy is extremely dangerous and taxing on the body and charities working to help those deserve the recognition. I've listed a few that could be added.
- EPI: Epilepsy Foundation https://www.epiny.org/
- Golden Heart Ranch https://www.goldenheartranch.org
- The Chelsea Hutchinson Foundation chelseahutchisonfoundation.org
Please consider this because the more charities we can support that cover more disabilities and diseases the more we can do to help those who are smaller.
We wanted to let you all know that the process for getting a charity added to the Twitch Charity Tool has changed, because of this, we will be closing out these requests. At this time, the charity tool is fully integrated with the PayPal Giving Fund; so if your charity is registered there, you can already find it to start a fundraising campaign. In the case you find your charity appears to be missing from the tool, please reach out to the organization regarding registering with the PayPal Giving Fund.
You can learn more about how to sign up your charity here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/twitch-charity-charities. For more information on Twitch’s Charity Tool, please feel free to access our FAQ Help Article: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/twitch-charity-faqs.
While we normally respond to each idea on UserVoice individually, as a result of the volume of requests and the scope of this change, we will be mass responding to let the community know. Apologies if you have shown support for multiple charities and are receiving more than one email update for this adjustment.
Thank you all for giving us your feedback and for sharing your passion for your charities with Twitch!
