Aftershock Media Group (AMG) hosted a refugee aid charity live stream event sponsored by GFuel and Mobile Gaming Corps on May 13 and 14, 2022.
On Friday and Saturday, May 13 and 14, 2022, several of AMG’s talent team streamed for 2 hours or more on their chosen platforms in support of the charities Direct Relief and Voices of Children. GFuel and Mobile Gaming Corps sponsored all the streams.
AMG set a goal of $10,000 to be raised for this worthy cause, and together we managed to meet it with $13,270.64 raised (at the time of writing)! We would love to give a huge “THANK YOU” to everyone involved!
Join AMG & Content Creators around the world for our 2 Day Live Stream Event, Friday & Saturday May 13-14th!
Proceeds go towards “Direct Relief” & “Voices of Children”.

Feedback from our Talent
“I feel so blessed to have participated in this event, which helped give back to worthy causes. Supporting charities that help kids, like Voices of Children, has a deep personal meaning for me. My goal is to make at least one person’s day better every day. It’s incredible to see my community care as much as I do and to be able to raise money as a team of creators. Thanks a lot, AMG!”

“I have been blessed with the opportunity to wake up each day and play mobile games for a living. I cannot imagine what the people of Ukraine are going through, so this event gave me the chance to do something much larger than myself and give back to those in need.”
