#GamersVSCovid invites anyone to enter these free creator qualifiers and pledge their support for the cause by making a donation for Direct Relief. From each of these creator qualifiers, a winner will emerge and go on to compete in the finals for the grand prize. 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. Please join us by pledging your support, making a donation, or playing in one of our tournaments!"
