Theme weeks are back in business at SB Nation and we’re rocking with “video games” for the next seven days. That means you’ll get to read a plethora of content from all around the community focusing on one of America’s favorite past times.
This week, to turn something commonly thought of as “unproductive” into real production, I’m going to be streaming a game later today in one of my Connected Franchises on Madden 20 in hopes of raising funds for a struggling business in the Minneapolis area. The business is called The Dripping Root and it’s quick-service restaurant that provides healthy-eating choices like fresh-pressed juices and smoothie bowls. The owner, Catiesha Pierson, is a young entrepreneur who is trying to achieve her dream while also raising her young son.
I’ll be streaming the game over on my Twitch account around 5 p.m. PT and I’ll be sure to post the link to the stream on my twitter which you can find here @Zonetracks.
The link for Catiesha’s GoFundMe is also right here.
I hope you all will join me in raising money for a good cause.
