WeSave! Charity Play FAQ
Who are WePlay! Esports and why did they start WeSave! Charity Play?
WePlay! Esports Media Inc. is an esports company that hosts a lot of Dota 2 and CS:GO tournaments. After the major offline events in the esports industry have been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided not to shy away from the problem and help as much as we could to bring our beloved events back. So, we created WeSave! Charity Play - an online tourney where all the teams are participating to bring some fun matches to the audience. The prize pool, together with all the donations from the viewers, will be transferred to the charity organizations that are helping to fight COVID-19.
What does my donation actually go towards?
Every donation that we get during the WeSave! Charity Play will be distributed evenly between GlobalGiving and CEPI funds.
Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) was launched at Davos (Switzerland) to develop vaccines and stop future epidemics. It is supported by the authorities of Norway, Germany, Japan, Canada, Australia, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Wellcome Trust foundation, and other charity organizations. CEPI, in coordination with the World Health Organization as well as other partners, develops vaccines against the coronavirus. CEPI’s aim is to advance COVID-19 vaccine candidates into clinical testing and defeat the virus as soon as possible.
GlobalGiving is a global crowdfunding community connecting nonprofits, donors, and companies in nearly every country. The organization partners with Hilton, Microsoft, Nike, Facebook, Ford, Cummins, Discovery, Google, and other companies to implement corporate social responsibility and philanthropy programs. The GlobalGiving Coronavirus Relief Fund was created to help and protect those who are the most vulnerable. The fund sends doctors and nurses to where they are needed the most; provides hospitals with masks, ventilators, and other lifesaving medical supplies; and delivers essential items to struggling families.
Does my donation go directly to CEPI and GlobalGiving?
All the donations are accumulated on the accounts of WePlay! Esports Media Inc. We have agreements with both of the funds on donating the funds to them as an organization. So after the marathon, all the donated funds and the prize pool will be distributed evenly between these two funds.
How can I donate via Twitch?
You can donate via their built-in system - Twitch Bits. If you already have them on your Twitch account, use cheermotes on our official Twitch channels - weplayesports_ru or weplayesports_en to make your contribution. We will add $0.01 (1 cent) to the prize fund for every spent Bit on those channels. Information about Bits and how to buy or use them can be found at https://www.twitch.tv/bits.
