Here at Thumb Culture we are all about giving something back into the world, especially charities. We felt that, even though participating in our upcoming charity stream is beneficial, we wanted to make this a permanent fixture in Thumb Culture. This way we will be constantly trying to raise awareness to those charities that are closest to the team’s hearts, through our website and streams. All revenue, donations etc will go straight to that charity, Thumb Culture will not gain any profit.
Each year a new charity will be chosen to raise money and awareness for as team members get to pick one they would like to start the year off with, making it a team effort and voices being heard.
With so many worthwhile charities to choose from, this year we will be raising money for Anxiety UK. This charity was established to promote the relief and rehabilitation of persons suffering from agoraphobia, associated anxiety disorders, panic attacks, PTSD, stress, depression, phobias and conditions, in particular, but not exclusively, by raising awareness in such topics.

With mental health problems being on the alarming rise, 1 in 6 people in the UK will experience a common mental health issue every year, we felt that this was something we wanted to help with and also a few of our team members are dealing with this in their personal life too, as are so many other people.
Charity Stream – 23/24 June 2018 – 9am until 9pm BST on both days
We would like to invite you to our very first charity stream! As mentioned before, all proceeds go directly to Anxiety UK. Our goal is to raise £500 and by doing that we have a variety of streamers who will be playing some video games via twitch for your viewing pleasure split into two 12 hour streams over two days. It will be an amazing weekend where we aim to bring awareness, positivity, fun, chat and some good old video game playing. Did I mention lots of prizes to giveaway like game codes and merch too?
