St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Director of Innovation, Content Creator Development
Zachary Whitten created and leads St. Jude PLAY LIVE, the video game fundraising program that benefits the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This effort has raised more than $13 million in the last five years through streamers, content creators, and partnerships with studios and publishers. Now, Zach is looking beyond gaming to see how content creators in all genres can be engaged to support the mission of St. Jude. He is probably responsible for more St. Jude tattoos than anyone else in the world. His favorite game is Chrono Trigger.
