Event to Mark Khalifa’s First-Ever Gaming Live Stream
JULY 11 “WIZ AND FRIENDS CHARITY LIVESTREAM” TO BENEFIT RISE ABOVE THE DISORDER
Funds Raised to Support People of Color in Need of Mental Health Care
PITTSBURGH / ATLANTA — Global esports team, the Pittsburgh Knights, and charity fundraising platform, Softgiving, have announced a partnership to create live-streamed charity events together. The first event, the Wiz and Friends Charity Livestream, will take place on Saturday, July 11, 2020, and will be hosted by multi-platinum recording artist Wiz Khalifa in his first-ever gaming live stream. Wiz is a strategic partner for the Knights and will be the featured personality at the center of these new philanthropic initiatives by the team. Additional charity stream events for 2020 will be announced.
In addition to Wiz, Twitch streamer Austin (formerly “RajjPatel”) will be featured at the event. Additional talent will be announced.
The July 11 event will benefit Rise Above the Disorder (RAD), which provides a universal mental healthcare system accessible to youth all over the world. Since 2017, RAD has covered the cost of mental health care for more than 35,000 people across 132 countries. All funds raised will support people of color in need of mental health care.
People of color in the U.S. experience a significant degree of marginalization and discrimination, which is a top risk factor for poor mental outcomes. As in health care, mental health care disparities associated with access and lack of insurance are substantial.
“In light of this extraordinary time when the Covid-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests have swept across the U.S. (and the world), we believe it is an especially important time to support thosewho are suffering and in need of mental health care,” said Knights president James O’Connor. “This charity live stream is a direct way to help those who do not have easy access to the care they need and deserve.”
The live-streamed event will feature guests including music artists, professional athletes and gaming influencers, as well as members of Khalifa’s artist collective, Taylor Gang. For a chance to play with Wiz during the livestream, fans can donate now at wizandfriends.com. Two winners will be chosen.
A Forbes-profiled entrepreneur, Wiz Khalifa is recognized for his business acumen, creative excellence, and charitable efforts. He has had his finger on the pulse of the video-gaming scene for several years, including the launch of his own top-rated mobile game in 2017.
Khalifa has said: “Nowadays artists are breaking music as well as premiering on different platforms like Twitch. I have always tried to be at the forefront of technology and I think this is another amazing moment in history. I am happy to be a part of it.”
O’Connor added: “We’re looking forward to using both our platform and our network to bring attention to worthy causes. We believe that esports is a wonderful way to bring people together and promote community, especially during such an unprecedented and isolating time. Softgiving is an amazing resource for us to bring everything and everyone together in order to make this all happen.”
Softgiving, an Atlanta-based fintech company, creates innovative and convenient fundraising solutions for nonprofits and is the first charity streaming platform to have a 0% platform fee. Their technology provides all of the tools and resources necessary to produce online charity events, such as custom landing pages, live support, streamer tech, and prize giveaways. Softgiving will also be instrumental in matching complementary nonprofits to the Knights and their associates.
“This partnership with the Knights is truly an amazing opportunity to help bring attention to the needs of so many charities all around the country … especially at a time like this when they may need support more than ever,” said Softgiving CEO Matt Pfaltzgraf. “Gaming brings communities together, so we are pleased to be a part of the efforts the Knights are making to impact people in a positive manner by supporting Rise Above the Disorder.”
“We’re thrilled to be teaming up with the Knights, Softgiving and Wiz to put on an event that will completely change the way we talk about mental health,” said Rise Above the Disorder CEO Jason Docton. “Now, perhaps more than ever, mental health care is so greatly needed. Through this event we’ll be able to raise the critical resources needed to provide free mental health care to people around the world.”
Softgiving and the Knights have developed integration opportunities for brands to sponsor the charity streams. Brand and donation partners for the July 11 charity stream will include Schell Games, MetroStar Systems, DREAM Clothing, and NFL Alumni Association.

Medi-Immune Ltd. have today (25-03-20) revealed their ProtectivAir® compact, wearable, breathing device which will protect front-line healthcare staff and those working in biologically-compromised environments. ProtectivAir® is currently awaiting testing against the Coronavirus at PHE Porton Down. ProtectivAir® has proven extremely effective against a range of viral and bacterial pathogens and is extremely likely to be similarly effective against SARS-Cov-2 (Covid-19).
ProtectivAir® provides four crucial protections:
• Disables airborne pathogens before they are inhaled
• Immediately protects the user from infection
• Does not use a filter, this allied with an optional, small positive air pressure generated by the device, provides far better protection from leakage than existing mask systems
• Tests to date indicate the resulting antigens trigger the body’s immune response
Public Health England – at their Porton Down laboratories, have validated the test results – confirming both protection and the initiation of an immune response. ProtectivAir® is now fully developed, and could be in production in weeks, providing protection and saving lives long before production and deployment of a vaccine. MedImmune believe that with appropriate resources, ProtectivAir® could be in full production within weeks.
ProtectivAir® offers superior operator protection over N95/99 and FFP3 face masks as well as much improved breathability and ease of use for the wearer. There is no requirement for fit testing. ProtectivAir® is completely reusable, internally self-sterilising (the outside can be surface decontaminated) and does not suffer from reduced efficacy over time (like conventional face masks).
Infectious diseases emerge at a frequency of one every 8 months of which a proportion are pathogens, transmitted as aerosols. Emerging respiratory diseases do, and will, continue to cause havoc within the world’s population, as is happening now with Covid-19. ProtectivAir®’s long shelf-life means it can be stockpiled for use in future outbreaks.
ProtectivAir® is an all-British invention, patented internationally, and represents a paradigm shift in respiratory protection. UVc has long been known and used as a way to sterilise surfaces and instruments but this novel application harnesses this technology to sterilise breathing air to protect users/wearers of the device.
We have proven the protective efficacy of ProtectivAir® but further investigation is required into the parameters surrounding the additional immune stimulation effect. This effect has been observed in studies using the Influenza virus but as yet uncharacterised; this immune stimulation effect offers a rapid solution to emerging pathogens as it does not require development, manufacture, and dissemination of a conventional vaccine.
