On June 22/23rd, the Mix it Forward community took part in a fundraising charity event for the LGBTQ support group; It raised $640 for The Trevor Project!
The Trevor Project was founded in 1998, and named after the academy award winning short film, TREVOR. It is devoted to providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) individuals under the age of 25.
It is a sad truth that this minority is discriminated against, and the need for such services exists at all. However, the fact that they do exist means that those individuals who suffer from this abuse are able to get the help they need to make it through the bullying.
I support these actions, nobody should be discriminated against for who they love. And the Mix It Forward community stands by me in this.
Who is the “Mix it Forward” community that is hosting the Trevor Project Charity stream?
To answer this, we must first explain what Mixer is. Mixer is a streaming platform run by Microsoft and is an alternative to Twitch. It is a fair bit smaller than Twitch but has several unique features available to it. My favorite of which are interactive buttons that can do whatever the streamer programs them to do. To see a full list of these features, please visit the Official Mixer features page.
Mix It Forward is a community of streamers helping one another learn the ins and outs of the Mixer streaming platform.
The Mix It Forward community was founded by Paco1342, after answering common questions and frequently giving sound advice as a moderator on the subreddit r/Mixer. He created a discord server as a place to gather helpful people and information; to be able to help new and small streamers get questions answered, receive meaningful feedback, and get a start on networking. He genuinely wants to help people, and he has a track record of helping individuals improve to a level where they can kick off.
To join in the charity event, simply visit Mix It Forward’s Tiltify page during the event on June 22nd and 23rd. Further down is a schedule list of all the participants and a glimpse into what you can expect to see!
