Creators will play fun and popular games like Crazy Cookie Taste Test, Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader™ as well as a never-before-seen game built specifically for the campaign from Scott Cawthon, the maker of the popular Five Nights At Freddy's video game series. The livestream will also feature a special guest appearance from former St. Jude patient, Miguel, who was treated for osteosarcoma as a teenager and now works at the fundraising organization for St. Jude.
Viewers can make donations to St. Jude anytime during the livestream, as The Game Theorists participate in fundraising challenges and announce special donation incentives.
"We are incredibly excited to partner with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital this year and so thankful to our collaborators on YouTube who are partnering with us on the stream. Treating childhood cancer used to be considered a hopeless cause," said Stephanie Patrick of The Game Theorists. "But treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago."
"The doctors and researchers working in this field are the bravest, most dedicated out there and the children going through treatments deserve all the support in the world," said Matthew Patrick of The Game Theorists. "Our friends joining us on the stream and their audiences are some of the most generous and amazing people we know. If we can play a role in helping bring everyone together in a big way to support the kids at St. Jude, in our mind, there's no more deserving organization."
