Hello friends! This Saturday, September 22nd, we, The Republic of Players gaming team, are hosting a 24-hour charity stream from the Maudlin’s Hotel in Kildare. We will be going on live on our Twitch page at 9am that morning until the following morning.
There will be tons of giveaways throughout the stream, spot prizes, forfeits and whole lot of craic! Our prizes include games from Sony, EA, retro game consoles, vouchers and more. Our event on Facebook is here!
Why are we doing this? Well, Seamus Fanning, who’s part of the TROP team, came to us asking if we would help support his niece Katie Coogan Fanning. Katie is a wonderful girl, but she can’t walk or talk – she has impaired vision and has had surgeries to improve her quality of hearing. She only has one working lung and a multitude of other problems (You can find out more about her here)
So far with the help of family and friends, we have raised over €2.5k for her recovery, surgeries, and equipment but we would love to raise more. The hashtag we are using is #TROP4Katie
We would love if you could pop-in during the stream and say “hello” and donate here through her Uncle Seamus if you can – but if you can’t, we’d be so grateful if you could help us spread the word. Here are some ideas if you’d like to use them or customise your own (feel free to attach the image of Katie too):
