The charity event, #GamersVsCovid starts today, and is a streamathon in support of Direct Relief’s Covid-19 Fund for Community Health, brings together former NBA pro Nate Robinson, pioneering YouTube personality Michelle Phan, and Team SoloMid’s ZexRow and Reverse2k for a 12-hour event Sunday, April 26 benefiting Covid-19 relief.
Gamers can participate in Fortnite tournaments hosted by celebrity streamers for free, with donations in support of the cause highly encouraged.
Hosted by ScrimToWin, the esports tournament platform, #GamersVSCovid will feature prizes courtesy of Logitech G, Razer, and other sponsors.
Here is more about the event:
The action kicks off at 8:00 a.m. PST, with featured creators being highlighted each hour of the event. Throughout the day, the community will have a shot at stellar prizes from sponsors Logitech G and Razer, including state-of-the-art gaming computers, keyboards, and signed jerseys and mousepads. Prizes will be awarded to those tuning into ScrimToWin on Twitch.
Since January, the humanitarian aid organization has supplied millions of masks, gloves, coveralls, and other personal protective equipment to health workers. All proceeds from #GamersVSCovid will go to Direct Relief’s Covid-19 Fund for Community Health, which has received multi-million dollar support from 3M and Sean “Diddy” Combs.
“The work being done by Direct Relief and others in the fight against Covid-19 is nothing short of inspiring,” said Timothy Tello, co-founder, ScrimToWin. “#GamersVSCovid is an open call for all gamers to aid the cause.
