#SPAWN4GOOD is a platform where we give gamers ways to do good in the world via this initiative. A platform with which to talk about social issues that the greater gaming community isn’t addressing. Especially those affecting gamers of color and other underrepresented groups.
The next topic we’re going to tackle is women’s reproductive rights.We at Spawn On Me understand that all encompassing healthcare is a right and we want to do what we can to support those fighting for those rights. Congressional barriers to women having access to the necessary health care they need to live their lives is something we want to push back against.
When thinking about this particular topic to raise funds for, We envisioned that we would have a higher ratio of women streamers than men. Although our show is hosted by two men, we both deeply care about these issues. We also know that since we can’t speak to these topics from personal experience we are giving a platform to those who have, do and will.
So I’m hoping that for a weekend we flip Twitch on its male streamer dominated head and have a bunch of badass people talk about these topics & issues frankly while playing games they love to make a difference.

SUGGESTED RULES FOR THE STREAM
- Ask people to donate. I’ll provide a link to where all donation funds will go.
- You can and should promote your respective platform (Website, Blog, Podcast) . I think it’s important for all those involved to share that they are doing something positive not only for our people but for the greater gaming community.
- Have fun, although some of these circumstances are dire and continuing. I believe that gaming should be an enjoyable hobby. This stream could be cathartic to us and our viewers, so please have fun with your respective stream.
- If you can or do already have mods for your streams, please let them know that we are hoping to have a positive day while this is going. We probably will get more trolls than usual.
