We are hosting a tournament for Child’s Play, a charity organization that ”seeks to improve the lives of children in hospitals around the world through the kindness and generosity of the video game industry and the power of play.” By holding this tournament we are hoping to raise awareness to this cause and possibly raise some money for them as well.
Throughout the tournament we’ll be giving some prizes away to the viewers at random and playing games with the viewers between and after tournament games. Some Rioters will be participating in these games as well as some familiar faces from the League of Legends community. Keep reading for the details.
In just 3 months, 10WinStreak has raised $4,030.14 for Child’s Play Charity thanks to your dedication and contribution! Let’s keep the momentum going and keep this movement alive. Our second round of fundraiser has just started, as you will notice an updated ChipIn widget on our site with the goal of $5000 by June 1, 2012. I expect to hit that goal way before June, just as we did with our first goal of $1337 back in September, 2011. Here’s to a fresh new year with a fresh new goal. Happy New Year everybody!
Since the release of our original site back in September of 2011, we have raised over $4000 for Child’s Play Charity and over 100 streamers have joined the cause (with stream applications pouring in regularly to this day).

Your continuous and relentless contribution to 10WinStreak.com has moved me deeply, and this new site is my appreciation to you and a commitment to keep going with this movement. I am confident that with your support, 10WinStreak.com will continue to create a real impact on charities that benefit people in need, as our community grows to become a positive force that represents the best of the gamer community.

Thanks for sending in the email. Do note that the new site is still under development, and we need to test out its existing functionalities. You can click on the Community menu (top-right) and register an account, change your profile, apply to stream, etc. There’s also a Forum (under Community menu) where I want you guys to post feedback. I will start a thread in the Feedback forum for us to discuss things.
We have been working on an overhaul (EDIT: the one you are looking at right now ) for our website! Planning to roll out before the holidays, along with some great events, so stay tuned!
For everyone who is wondering how to stream, Here is a guide on how it’s done. This link is temporary and will be removed once an offical link on the site is added.
Huge “thank you” again to Steven Snow for matching the original donation of $1337 to Child’s Play. Combining Steven’s donations with yours, we raised $2674 for charity by the end of September! Since then, you’ve donated and raised over a thousand MORE dollars, shooting us up to $3750. Suddenly, $9000 doesn’t seem so far. Give yourselves a hand!
We raised over $900 in just one night with the Penny Arcade vs. Rioters games, with peak concurrent viewer of over 2500 people! In addition, 10WinStreak.com was featured on Summoner Showcase and Penny Arcade!
