Last year, two streamers, scaredpanda and Rahne, took on a very ambitious project: EVE’s very first 72-hour continuous stream—EVEathon. With over a dozen streamers involved in the project, EVEathon managed to shatter the barriers for player-driven fundraisers – a monumental task given EVE’s very charitable player base. EVEathon raised over $6,800 for the charity organization Spam4Heals—a nonprofit benefiting Broadcast4Reps and Best Of Us with a focus on suicide prevention and awareness. This year they’re at it again!
This year, EVEathon will be benefiting The AbleGamers Foundation, an established non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the wonderful world of video games to those with disabilities. Moreover, AbleGamers has been instrumental in the lives of several EVE denizens—making them the perfect choice. The Angel Project will accept in-game donations, too. The Angel Project is a 5-year-old in-game charity with 100% of the donations supporting new player groups.
From Friday, June 16th until Sunday, June 18th, scaredpanda and Rahne will be joined by The Imperium’s own Gommel Nox among over 15 other Eve online personalities at www.twitch.tv/EVEathon for seventy-two continuous hours of Eve Online action! Everything from solo PvP, NPSI Fleets to exploration and mining—anything you’re interested in is covered. Whether you can donate in-game, out-of-game, or not at all—EVEathon would love to have you watch and spread the news. Let the world know that, without a doubt, the game known for scams, deception, and war is still second to none when it comes to being charitable.
