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.
In 2019 we will be raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young, and we can not wait to help this amazing charity out however we can!
Every week in the UK at least 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions. Since its formation in 1995, Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) has been working to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD). CRY supports young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected by YSCD. CRY promotes and develops heart screening programmes and funds medical research. CRY publishes and distributes medical information written by leading cardiologists for the general public. CRY funds specialist referral, screening and cardiac pathology services at leading UK hospitals.
