For this upcoming New Year’s Eve, Stream Energy will once again sponsor the New Year’s Eve fireworks show in downtown Dallas, as part of the Big D NYE 2012 event.
We’re going to use that platform to highlight Captain Hope’s Kids and the work they’re doing to bring relief to the homeless children in North Texas.
Recently, we followed Stream Energy Chairman Rob Snyder as he visited the WFAA studios to film one of the commercial spots that will air on New Year’s Eve. Check out the video for a “behind the scenes” look…

This holiday season, the Stream Energy employee family has been actively engaged in a toy drive to end all toy drives. In 2009, we set a record for toy donations made to Captain Hope’s Kids, and it was our stated goal for 2010 to smash last year’s results.
In a word, we crushed it.
Thanks to the combined generosity of all Stream Energy employees and many of our Ignite Associates, we gathered 2,313 toys for Captain Hope’s Kids this year.
If you visited the Stream Energy office in Dallas yesterday, you likely noticed that a camera crew took over the Diane Davis Auditorium space.
This was part of our planned New Year’s Eve sponsorship of the Big D NYE Fireworks Spectacular and New Year’s Eve countdown on WFAA Channel 8.
But we’re not just simply sponsoring one of the largest fireworks displays in the United States; we’re also using that bully pulpit to help spread the word about the good works performed by Captain Hope’s Kids.
Senior staff from Captain Hope’s Kids joined Stream Energy chairman Rob Snyder on camera to share their appreciation for all the toys donated by Stream Energy employees. More importantly, they shared the message that homeless children in our community need support. And their friends at Stream Energy are there for them!
As we prepare for the New Year, enjoy a video clip from WFAA promoting our Stream Energy Fireworks Spectacular.

“A Big Difference Starts Small” campaign includes
Holiday Toy Drive, Diaper Drive and New Year’s Eve Fireworks at Victory Park
Stream Energy, the largest network marketer of energy in America, has announced expansion of the firm’s partnership with Captain Hope’s Kids, a charitable organization which meets the critical needs of homeless children in the North Texas area.
As part of its commitment, Stream Energy unveiled a campaign, “A Big Difference Starts Small.” Stream Energy Chairman Rob Snyder announced that the initiative will include an extension of the company’s spring 2010’s record-setting diaper drive and the holiday seasonal Toy Drive. Additional initiatives will be announced soon.
To give greater visibility of the work of Captain Hope’s Kids, the organization’s Executive Director Jeanne Reyer will join Rob Snyder in helping to launch the Stream Energy-sponsored spectacular fireworks display climaxing the New Year’s Eve Big D NYE. The celebration at Victory Park in Dallas will air live on WFAA, Channel 8 December 31st.
“New Year’s Eve is a celebration of renewal and hope,” said Rob Snyder. “We are very proud to draw deserved attention to Captain Hope’s Kids, which in 2009 touched the lives of 32,000 children from homeless families.” He continued, “Families with children make up 47 percent of the homeless population in the Dallas metropolitan area. Captain Hope’s Kids provides needed goods and services to these unfortunates – and Stream Energy is going to help.” Captain Hope’s Kids works with 40 service providers to provide basic items to homeless mothers and their children.
One featured segment and one commercial sponsored by Stream Energy highlighting the work of the 20-year old non-profit organization will air on WFAA, Channel 8, during the New Year’s Eve program.
