The following was sent to Inven Global as a press release.
Secretlab today announced a partnership with Make-A-Wish®, the world’s leading wish-granting organization for children with critical illnesses and its first charity of choice. Make-A-Wish® has been helping wish children fulfill their wishes for the past 40 years, giving them the hope, strength and joy they need to beat back their illness.
Having recently concluded a campaign that will see 400,000 masks donated to hospitals in the US, UK, and Singapore, Secretlab remains committed to doing its part to give back to the community as the world continues to battle COVID-19. However, certain vulnerable groups are more heavily affected by the pandemic, and the partnership with Make-A-Wish® is part of Secretlab’s efforts to support those in need and bring hope and smiles to wish children during this difficult time.
Gaming has become wildly popular across the globe—with 2.6 billion gamers worldwide today—including among children with critical illnesses. Make-A-Wish has seen a rise in the number of gaming-related wishes, and this partnership with Secretlab will help wish children who are also passionate gamers form positive experiences and empower them with renewed energy and optimism to take on their illnesses.
As a leader in performance gaming seats and the partner of the world’s most successful esports teams and tournaments, Secretlab will support Make-A-Wish® in its drive to grant the wish of every eligible child, infusing happiness and cheer into the lives of wish children, inspiring them to fight even harder.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many wishes being postponed, and this partnership will ensure that some wish children still continue to have something to look forward to and see their most cherished wishes fulfilled.
To kickstart the partnership with Make-A-Wish®, Secretlab is collaborating with Team Liquid, one of the world’s oldest and most successful esports organizations with whom it recently partnered, to organize a 24-hour CHAIR-ity stream supporting wish children.
The stream will be hosted by Team Liquid, where stream donations as well as part of the proceeds from every Secretlab Team Liquid Edition chair sold during this period will help grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses.
The stream will go live on 22 May at 12.00PM PST at twitch.tv/teamliquid, featuring Liquid influencers and players from its championship winning teams, such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive talent Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella, Super Smash Bros. extraordinaire Juan “Hungrybox” Debiedma, and Team Liquid co-owner Steve “LiQuiD112" Arhancet.
In addition, wish children will have the opportunity to participate in the stream, alongside their favorite players and personalities. Together with Team Liquid, Secretlab aims to spread a message of hope for wish children and make a meaningful difference. The CHAIR-ity stream will also help raise awareness of the transformative power the fulfillment of a wish can have on individual wish children and further highlight Make-A-Wish®’s need for support at this time.
