#GamersVSCovid, a charity stream in support of Direct Relief’s COVID-19 Fund for Community Health, kicks off on Sunday, April 26. The stream will feature free-to-enter, donation-encouraged tournaments in Fortnite, hosted by Team SoloMid’s ZexRow and Reverse2k, YouTuber Michelle Phan, former NBA pro Nate Robinson, as well as other well-known content creators.
The 12-hour stream will be hosted by ScrimToWin, the esports tournament platform designed for creators and gamers, to easily connect in bracket-style tournaments. In collaboration with Logitech G, Razer, and Streamlabs, ScrimToWin’s #GamersVSCovid will feature dozens of content creators and pro gamers hosting tournaments anyone can join.
#GamersVSCovid invites anyone to enter the free creator qualifiers and pledge their support for the cause by making a donation for Direct Relief. A winner from each creator qualifier will go on to compete in the finals for the grand prize.
The action will kick off at 8:00 a.m. PST and featured creators will be highlighted each hour of the event. Throughout the day, the community will have a shot at prizes from sponsors Logitech G and Razer, including gaming computers, keyboards, and signed jerseys and mousepad. Prizes will be awarded to those tuning into ScrimToWin on Twitch. Since January, Direct Relief has supplied millions of masks, gloves, coveralls, and other personal protective equipment to health workers.
“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 of ScrimToWin. “#GamersVSCovid is an open call for all gamers to aid the cause. Please join us by pledging your support, making a donation, or playing in one of our tournaments!”
Donations are now open via Streamlabs. To join creator qualifiers and check the schedule of events, visit the official website. For more information on the work done by Direct Relief, visit the website, Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
