How it works:
  • If you'd like to nominate a charity, please go to the Request a Charity subpage and tell us the charity's (1.) name, (2.) website, and (3.) country. We will be reviewing these submissions periodically.
  • Choose a relevant category for your idea to check to see if any other users have already submitted this suggestion before creating your own
  • Upvoting existing ideas will increase the weight behind the idea, as opposed to multiple similar requests (we will combine these anyway)
  • Be sure to share your suggestion with others to gain more support!
  • Note: Suggestions are not guarantees that we will take action on an idea. We will try our best to communicate why an idea may not work, but may not always be able to share that information

If you need help:
This forum is for ideas only. If you need help, please check out our help portal for tons of articles that may answer your questions. If you still need help, you can reach out to our support team in the help portal as well!

Appeals or commentary on suspension decisions, support requests, suggestions disparaging others, and non-constructive feedback will be closed without comment.

  8. October commemorates Filipino American History Month, and as such it would be great to have FANHS added before then! Their mission is "To promote understanding, education, enlightenment, appreciation and enrichment through the identification, gathering, preservation and dissemination of the history and culture of Filipino Americans in the United States."

    Stated on their website, "Since 1987, FANHS has sponsored national conferences (later ratified as a biennial event) where community folks of all ages and from all walks of life gather to share and present research, network with other Filipino Americans, and honor those who have produced ground-breaking innovative work in the…

  10. Endometriosis is a women's disease that needs to be more widely known which should be discussed that's why I think this is an important charity to be added to Twitch. 1 in 10 women has it, but how much it affects them differs greatly. More research is needed as to the causes and treatment for this disease, because much is unknown. Extreme menstrual pain is not normal. And not only menstruation problems but also infertility, miscarriages and chronic pain. It can have a huge impact on a woman's life.

  14. taking this idea from a comment by tarrenvane on the "Remove hate groups" idea. it would be better optics for twitch to remove autism speaks from this feature and put this one in its place. from the about page at https://autisticadvocacy.org/:

    "The Autistic Self Advocacy Network seeks to advance the principles of the disability rights movement with regard to autism. ASAN believes that the goal of autism advocacy should be a world in which autistic people enjoy equal access, rights, and opportunities."

    i believe ASAN is US-based judging by their mailing address being in Washington, DC.

  16. PancONE Network is the international research division of Pancreatic Cancer Canada Foundation, which aims to disrupt the traditional approach to discovery in pancreatic cancer by bringing together multiple sectors, innovations, and novel methods to drive real change. We’ve waited long enough for the kind of meaningful progress that matters in the lives of those directly affected by this horrendous cancer.

    Survival must increase more rapidly than 1-2% every decade. If we could change the odds for ****** cancer in our lifetime, what is stopping us from doing the same for pancreatic cancer?

  17. https://shadowcats.net/

    In 1997 there were very few resources available for stray cats in the central Texas area and nationwide. Rampant breeding allowed cats to give birth to countless litters of kittens to continue the cycle of suffering. Doomed to an indifferent life on the streets, their lives were usually brief; or, if they ended up in shelters, they were usually euthanized soon after arrival.

    Identifying a great need, Shadow Cats became a reality- a resource for cats in the shadows.

    Through diligence, a small cadre of veterinarians and trappers began to work together to learn to humanely trap, sterilize, vaccinate…
