International charity Twitch event for Christchurch


He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata.
What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.
- Maori proverb.
“Aroha for NZ” is an upcoming international charity stream event for the victims and families of the terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand. This event looks to honour the memory of all those killed, and to spread Aroha to the people of NZ. “Aroha” is a Maori (indigenous NZ) word that means complete love and support.

Kiwi streamer ‘Solitaire YTG’, conceptualised the event, reaching out to Goto.Game’s Phid McAwesome to assist with event logistics.

Solitaire says: “When the news broke of the attack, everyone's reaction was shock. We are all deeply affected by this, but none more so than the victims’ families and the people of Christchurch. We have to react and do something, anything, to help and to show love against hate. There are people within the gaming community who have a voice that is heard when they speak, so I reached out to Phid first, then made a Twitter video post. People approached in droves to show support for the stream.”

Co-organiser Phid McAwesome added: “We want to ensure that this stream is nothing but Aroha (love) for those affected,the victims, their whanau (family) and the people of our homeland of Aotearoa/New Zealand. So we will not be branding this stream with company logos, however if brands want to assist we welcome their support of practical assistance or even donations. please follow our Twitch, twitter and Facebook accounts to find out more.”

“Aroha for NZ” is set to take place on Saturday 30th March, 2019 through Sunday 31st March, 2019 (AEDT).

Registration is open to all streamers worldwide. Any brands looking to support the event, are invited to reach out to Phid McAwesome via email: Phid@Goto.Game.
