Sony and Twitch have partnered on a month of live Twitch charity drives called Gaming4Life 2018 with the goal of raising money for the youth cancer program You Can. The best part? Anyone with a Twitch account can help out.
The goal is to hit a whopping $50,000 by February 19. Those who register as charity streamers, and those who commit to donating to You Can, are in with a chance to win some pretty rad prizes courtesy of PlayStation Australia including an ultra rare 20th Anniversary 1TB PlayStation 4 console.
Less than 13,000 of these coveted machines were made and they became instant collector’s items so the fact that PlayStation AU have found FIVE of them to give away is no small feat. The four highest fundraisers over $10,000 will snag a 20th Annversary PS4 for themselves and every donation over $10 goes in the draw to win the fifth and final console.
There’s tons of streams going up all month, including from some of your fave Aussie streamers like Loserfruit, Bajo and Deligracy and you can find out when they’ll be running their steams here and sign up yourself if you want to get involved.
Per Sony’s press release, here’s the full set of prizes for streamers and donators alike:
Every streamer that reaches these fundraising milestones is eligible to win the following prizes:
- $50 — limited edition Gaming4Life 2018 t-shirt
