Who is behind all of this?
We are an online community and parody army with members worldwide. Toy Soldiers Unite started out in 2006 with the goal to make the world a better place. Now, many years later, our community and ambitions keep growing bigger constantly. We have various projects and events going on on a regular base to make people’s lives better and richer, and to bring more joy and fun into this world. This also includes lots of charity work. With the Gaming Marathon we are aiming to have a greater impact on our surroundings, to make a notable change.
What are the numbers?
In 2014, Engineer Airhead had a brilliant idea: Why not use the growing popularity of Game Streaming to support a good cause and spread fun worldwide? Quickly, he organised the first of a series of events, even though back then he wasn’t quite aware of it. That year, we collected 1001 USD for Child’s Play and we decided to aim even higher.
In 2015, we managed to collect 1565 USD for Alzheimer’s Society. Even though that was much more than the year before, we felt that we could do better!
In 2016, we moved to a total of 2100 USD for Enable. Only proving that we can indeed do better with the right amount of support!
In 2017, we dropped down to 1701 USD for Mind, and unfortunately did not manage to reach our goal. But this didn’t stop us from trying again!
And thus came 2018, our 5th year anniversary! Collecting 1715 USD for The Brain and Behaviour research foundation!
Every year we try to aim even higher. By contacting more sponsors, poking more streamers and providing more fun to the viewers!
