Ty the Pie Guy – Let’s LIVESTREAM

In Family Entertainment, Livestream, Our Work, Social Media, WebSeries on August 9, 2020 at 6:30 pm

When Ty the Pie Guy’s Ty Freedman called Susan to say he wanted to make a difference for kids during Covid, 134 West teamed up with Ty the Pie Guy to produce 24 episodes of Ty’s Kitchen Dance Party LIVE – a streaming show to help kids stay active and engaged during a time of great stress for parents and children.¬† ūüėć

Thanks Essential Workers

Ty opened each show welcoming kids to his kitchen and using dance and yoga for a fun kid’s work out, while also talking about important, timely issues – like wearing masks, Pride month, Black Lives Matter, missing graduation – giving kids and parents a way to discuss and deal with this unprecedented time. Even school kids and teachers joined the LIVESTREAM so Ty could shout out to students and fans around the country.

For the July 31st Season Finale on Facebook and YouTube Live, we joined STREAM for No Kid Hungry and raised almost $1200 to help provide over 10,000 meals for kids.¬† ūüĎć

What’s next for Ty the Pie Guy: Season 2 of Kitchen Dance Party LIVE? Or Ty the Pie Guy: The Movie? Stay tuned, mask up and eat pie!
