For the benefit of charity: water’s Water x Stream event

In February 2021, GFGC connected with charity: water and signed on as an official broadcaster for their Water X Stream event, which aimed to raise $1M for clean water projects before Earth Day. The team from last December’s event came back together and even grew in size, organizing GFGC Marathon: Just Add Water for the benefit of charity: water! Following three amazing days of fundraising, GFGC Marathon: Just Add Water became the most successful fundraiser organized by GFGC to date, raising $2,500 for charity: water and surpassing a cumulative $25K raised for charity since 2013. These funds were matched 100% by PCPartPicker as a part of the Water X Stream event, helping us bring clean water to more than 120 people in Uganda.

For the benefit of Direct Relief’s response to COVID-19

Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, Gaming For Global Change was forced to innovate, producing a streaming event for charity while keeping everyone distanced and safe. From this conflict, GFGC Marathon, a four day remote streaming event featuring broadcasters from all around the globe, was born. After four days of daily streaming from 12PM-12AM, more than $1,300 was raised for the benefit of COVID-19 relief and several new members of our community had the opportunity to game for global change
