Season of Giving 2016
During this holiday season, Continuum Studio had the opportunity to engage the community in two forms. First, we partnered with the Orlando Church of Christ and the Coalition for the Homeless here in Orlando, Florida. At the Coalition for the Homeless, we traveled to the women’s shelter downtown to cook and serve a Halloween themed dinner. Dinner consisted of meatloaf, mashed potatoes, mixed veggies, salad and dirt pudding. We were able to feed about 50 mothers and children. Overall, it was a great time for Continuum and Orlando Church of Christ. Our hopes are that we can continue to do this on a monthly basis come first of the year in 2017.
This November, we were able to join in the Extra Life 2016 Charity event. Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world in a 24 hour gaming marathon to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $22 million for local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This year Josh, Casey N. and Chad joined in on the fun. We also started to work on our Continuum Studio twitch channel for this event. You can find us at www.twitch.tv/continuumstudio. Both of Josh and Casey’s channels were hosted on our channel through out the streaming event. Each team member had a personal goal and then as a team we had a goal. Our team goal was $500. We felt that it was a good benchmark to set for us. The results were amazing!!! The event had over 5,500 teams and we were ranked 1,500! As a team, we raised $620 which is 124% overall our goal. Chad’s personal contribution to the team goal was a blessing. His goal was $200 and managed to raise $490 in total which in return gave him a 245% increase. Some participants didn’t managed to get on a team but decided to participate as an individual. There were over 50,200 participants. Chad was ranked 3179 which is in the top 6% of all participants in the event!
This is the first of many events for us towards the community. Look out for more in the future in a variety of ways! There is a link to the right if you want to give more to help save the children! We would like to thank every giver to our campaign so far!
