What is the Trevor Project?
The Trevor Project is described on the official website as:
Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.
The charity was founded in response to a public health crisis impacting LGBTQ youth, and research the charity has done has showed “that over 1.8 million LGBTQ young people in the United States consider suicide each year.”
They operate a 24/7 phone Lifeline, an on-demand digital service for youth to reach out 24/7 over text or online and generally offer support to effected youth all throughout the year. Alongside this, the charity also created TrevorSpace, a dedicated social networking site in over 100 countries that allows LGBTQ youth to connect.
They do fantastic work in what is a really important area. You can read more about the charity and their brilliant work on their website right here.
How can I help The Trevor Project?
The first way is to head over to Ranboo’s Twitch Stream right now. Ranboo is aiming to become the most subbed streamer on Twitch through this live stream and will be donating all proceeds to The Trevor Project.
Who is Ranboo?
Ranboo is a US Twitch streamer with over 1.5 million followers on the streaming platform and over 840k on Twitter. He regularly streams Minecraft.
What records were broken?
Ranboo set out to become the most subscribed Twitch streamer, something he achieved with ease. He also broke a range of other records along the way.
He now holds third place for most concurrent Twitch subs ever and he also believes he broke the record for most subs in a single day and the biggest hype train ever. All while raising $100,000 for a fantastic cause. Great job, Ranboo.
We raised over $100,000 for the Trevor Project
I became one of only 3 people to ever hit 100k subs on twitch
We broke the record (I think) for most subs in a single day (44.5k)
We (I'm pretty sure) created the biggest hype train of all time
And even more.
