How excited would you be if you dropped into a game of PUBG and upon looting your first house, found a level 3 backpack, helmet, vest and AWM? Pretty excited, right? Now take that feeling and multiply it by a 15x PM II Scope. That’s kinda how stoked we are about this epic announcement…
We’re proud to share news that our friends at PUBG Corp. will be joining us at Gamers for Giving 2018. In addition to working with us to host activities / tournaments for LAN attendees (details TBA), the developers of PUBG will be matching donations made by the community – effectively doubling the fundraising efforts of this year’s event.
Translation: if we’re able to reach our goal of $350K, with PUBG’s match, Gamers for Giving 2018 could raise as much as $700,000 in support of Gamers Outreach programs!
Wowza. Talk about a 10th anniversary celebration!
“It’s been great to see content creators and their audiences using their talents for worthy causes, and PUBG Corp. is committed to supporting charity efforts with the same enthusiasm our players have shown,” PUBG community manager Sammie Kang said in a statement. “We’ve made an impact in the gaming world over the past year, and we’re hoping to have even more of an effect on some outstanding charitable organizations in 2018.”
PUBG Corp. is dedicating $2 million to charity events this year – with a portion supporting Gamers Outreach programs, as well as other great causes like Extra Life. The money comes from the sale of PUBG crates that were sold as part of a promotion during Gamescom last summer.
We can’t wait to share more details in the coming weeks.
Massive thanks to the team at PUBG for their incredible generosity. These resources will make a HUGE difference in our quest to provide recreation to kids and families in hospitals across the nation.
If you can’t attend Gamers for Giving but would still like to support the cause, you can stream + fundraise by creating a campaign on our fundraising portal.
Hope you’ll join us in person or online April 28th & 29th!
