Gamer charity organisation GenerOZity is teaming up with Cure Cancer in an effort to raise AU $50,000 for cancer research in Australia. GenerOZity 11, the latest event in a long-running series, will take place starting 1 June 2022 and feature a number of well-known Aussie content creators live streaming to raise funds throughout the month.

So far confirmed to be part of the event are PandaTV, LuckyBonez and TheMonolith, all of whom will be streaming on the GenerOZity Twitch channel throughout the event. As we head closer to launch, GenerOZity plans to launch a full creator schedule with more names and exact stream times.

Everyone who tunes in will have a chance to win prizes from a number of sponsors, but most importantly – they’ll be able to donate directly to Cure Cancer while they watch.

‘Everyone volunteers their time, we don’t make a cent off of donations which go completely to supporting amazing charities like Cure Cancer,’ Joel Rennie, director of GenerOZity said in a press release. ‘Everyone who donates, watches, likes our content, follows, retweets, subscribes, chats, lurks, emotes in chat – literally everyone involved makes GenerOZity what it is.’

To date, GenerOZity has raised AU $317,344.52 for charities, including Cure Cancer Australia, Childsplay Charity, Checkpoint Organisation, and Fire & Rescue Services (RFS/CFA) with all funds going directly to much-needed aid.

‘Over the last three years, GenerOzity and their dedicated community have raised an incredible $103,000 for Cure Cancer,’ Nikki Kinloch, Cure Cancer CEO said. ‘This wonderful achievement has helped to fund over a year of cutting edge innovative cancer research.’

‘The support of GenerOzity is vital in helping young cancer researchers pursue their ground-breaking projects – currently only 5% of researchers receive government funding, causing many researchers to leave Australia to pursue opportunities abroad or leave research altogether.’

There’s hope the organisation will surpass its AU $50,000 goal as its month of fundraising kicks off.

To tune into GenerOZity 11 and donate to Cure Cancer, you can follow along with all the news on the organisation’s Twitter page, or find out more about how to donate via its website. The month-long Cure Cancer initiative will be live on Twitch from 1 June 2022.
