My move to Facebook Gaming will give me a larger platform to share my voice with a global audience and hear their perspectives on the gaming landscape.”
In addition to Facebook Gaming’s reach, the platform offers features that enable streamers to fundraise with their communities for charitable causes, a value that rings true to Wang's commitment to philanthropy.
“Facebook Gaming and I share a deep understanding about the importance of giving back and helping others,” said Disguised Toast. “I have always admired Facebook’s proactive approach to philanthropy, and I am excited about working together to support children and families in need.”
As part of this move, Wang will donate 100% of his net proceeds earned from Facebook Stars, a feature that allows creators to monetize their streams through one-time donations from viewers, to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for his entire first month on the platform. In further celebration of joining Facebook Gaming, and to share his love for gaming with others, Wang has also donated $20,000 to patients and their families at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
