So in the two days now We have taken in our son's best friend until some things settle down. We want to do a charity stream to raise funds to buy him an Xbox one as his step dad came today and stole the PS4 from their home. There is a good possibility that he may have taken other items of value as well. Any extra funds would be used for some extra toys for the younger siblings. As well as other necessities Caleb might need, i.e. shoes.
More backstory: The night of the 5th, our son's friend witnessed his step dad fight with his mom, shove her out of a car and speed off.. drunk and possibly high. All the while he was holding his younger sister(2) and younger brother(1) from going outside. This boy, Caleb, has been a great friend to our younger son, Ethan, since we moved in to our current apartment and has also been an awesome boy towards our girls. He is very respectful, quiet, and sweet. This would be an awesome gift we could do for him as it would give him the ability to play video games with Ethan and our other son, Sebastian whether online or at his place. We can provide a way to get him access to our library of games (we over close to 200 in all, as well as Gold membership).
Right now we figured a minimum of $500 to get a referbed xbox one with 1tb HD and a second controller from Gamestop. We have a membership with them so can get the discount. Any extra funds will go towards toys/items for the younger siblings to help out.
We ask that if you are willing to help out to DM myself or Tank for links and details. We want to do one stream for sure this next Wednesday July 12th starting from probably 5pm CST and going until whenever, more details will be hashed out as we figure it out. If that date doesn't work the best or doesn't produce much, we will both do another stream or multiple streams over the next few days thereafter.
We want to encourage other streamers to join us in our streams or if they want to use a link/panel whatever for their own stream to help us raise the funds.
