Softgiving helps high profile streamers raise nearly $160,000 for Best Friends Animal Society


About 2 dozen animal-loving influencers led by high-profile streamers Veritas and aDrive raised nearly $160,000 for Best Friends Animal Society during our month-long, #MarchCatness charity streaming event!

During the event, animal advocates across the nation got their communities involved in peer-to-peer fundraising while raising awareness of the amazing work that Best Friends Animal Society does for animal welfare.

“It’s surreal to take a step back and see just how much my community, and other streamer friends, stepped up during these last few events. Raising nearly $160,000 in such a short amount of time still blows my mind,” said Veritas, who has raised nearly $68,000 for Best Friends Animal Society this year.

“When my wife and I visited the Best Friends location in New York City, the impact our community is having really hit me,” he continued “Seeing just a small set of the animals who were helped and rescued as a result of everyone’s generosity was amazing — but getting to see, first hand, the looks on the faces of the families and kids that would eventually be the ones to take them home was truly unforgettable. I’m so thankful for the support from the Escape from Tarkov community, and everyone else who supported this cause!”

“I was drawn to this campaign because I truly love my dog, Lillipup, and I hope for others to see the value in sharing their lives with an animal companion,” said A-Drive. “It gives me a lot of hope to know how much good people do in the world for our furry friends, so I wanted to do my small part in giving back to them. I’m so proud of my community, the aDrive Army, as well as a handful of other awesome communities, for coming together for such an incredible cause.”
