Gamers versus COVID-19 Fortnite Tournament
In times of such uncertainty and worry, it is important to remember we are all in this together! During this worldwide pandemic, many countries are coming to the aid of those in need, despite having issues of their own at home. Whether it be sending equipment, medicine, tests, etc., our world leaders know we are stronger together than apart! Sharing that spirit, on Sunday April 26th, ScrimToWin hosted the Gamers vs Covid-19 Fortnite Tournament and fundraiser on Twitch.tv! Their goal was to bring people together in a safe and enjoyable way, to raise funds for Direct Relief’s Covid-19 fund. But the event turned out to be much more than just a fundraiser! So much so, that Co-Founder, Timothy Tello, had only this to say, “I am just floored at the overall response of the gaming community. Everyone has been so receptive to helping in these hard times. It’s amazing to see community helping community.” With that in mind, it is clear, charity events like this go well beyond simply raising money. They send a clear message to those they support, that they are never alone and never forgotten!
