Brendon Urie is big in the gaming community, airing a daily Twitch stream where he talks everything from video games to recording metal songs. On Friday (November 15), he's using his platform for more than just entertainment. The Panic! At The Disco frontman is hosting a special stream that, according to a press release, will "feature special guests and giveaways from Panic! At The Disco and friends at Oculus, HyperX, Beat Saber, Call Of Duty, The Game Awards, and more surprises."
But that's not all. The stream is also an opportunity for fans to donate money for the band's Highest Hopes Foundation — an organization that "helps lead, develop, and advocate support for human rights" by sharing "strength, courage, and motivation to all people and communities who are subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity."
Earlier this year Urie was honored with the GLSEN Inspiration Award for the foundation's work with the LGBTQ community.
"After kicking things off at TwitchCon with the legend DrLupo, I'm excited to host a special charity stream for the Highest Hopes Foundation with support from my friends at State Farm,” Urie said in a statement. “The gaming community can be a powerful force for so much good – let's make a difference together!"
Help Urie get to his donation goal of $100,000 by tuning into his Twitch Channel.
