Bits & Bytes

We've been doing this for 3 years now.
And every year we keep growing in our efforts to make the world a better place.
One charity at a time!

We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.

The Army of Toy Soldiers is 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.

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 1000 USD for Child's Play and we decided to aim even higher.
In 2015, we managed to collect more than 1500 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 the target to 2000 USD and managed to collect even that amount. Only proving that we can indeed do better with the right amount of support.

And every year we try to aim even higher. This by contacting more sponsors, enlisting more streamers and providing more fun to the viewers!

So, what do we actually do?

We get together, play games and stream them online for everyone to see. People can follow our various streams, watching people from all over the world play - And if they like it (or even if they don't), they can donate any amount. Every penny helps and means something to those who it will go to. So, take a look around, join us and enjoy the show!
