We raised over $214,000 for One Step Camp! Thanks for watching and donating, we'll be back next year.

Tip of the Hats is an annual charity livestream event benefiting One Step Camp, hosted by the Team Fortress 2 community.

One Step Camp

Children's Oncology Services, Inc. believes that a diagnosis of cancer should not prevent a child from experiencing the simple joys of childhood.

Through their One Step programs, they offer camp experiences and other programs throughout the year that allow children with cancer to just be kids.

Their programs offer fun, friendship and support in a safe and nurturing environment.

"Chemotherapy may have cured my cancer, but camp definitely cured my spirit." - Stephanie


This year, we're upping the ante. Tip of the Hats 2015 will be produced in our Chicago, IL studio with all staff on-site. As always, we'll be live on twitch.tv/tipofthehats. You can find the full event schedule here.

More about TotH

In 2013, Sean "seanbud" Stradley started what would become Tip of the Hats. On his Twitch stream, Sean started a raffle into which anyone who provided a donation receipt to a charity would be entered. After the initial success of this miniature stream event, it was clear that something more could be made from it. The first annual Tip of the Hats was held a few months and a lot of hard work later, in March of 2013.
