The Joy of Fundraising: A Tiltify Podcast
In Episode 7, we had the opportunity to talk to the woman in charge of Community Engagement at Alienware, as well as content creator extraordinaire Anna "rxysurfchic" Maree
Anna has accomplished so much in the gaming industry - from professional Halo and Call of Duty competitor on the MLG Circuit to working in Community Engagement at Alienware, the community she has built up as an influencer is undeniably powerful. Over the last 6 years, they have raised over $100,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital - and, in the first week of the PLAY LIVE Prize Season this year, they have raised over $27,000 at the time of recording - and $35,000 at the time of posting this episode. With a month-long fundraising campaign for St. Jude every May, we wanted to talk to Anna Maree about how she finds a way to keep her momentum moving forward from day to day - while also asking about working with brands and her personal connection to St. Jude.
