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 organisation Spam4Heals - a nonprofit benefiting Broadcast4Reps and Best Of Us with a focus on suicide prevention and awareness. This year they’re at it again!
EVEathon 2017 will be benefiting The AbleGamers Foundation, an established non-profit organisation 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. In-game donations will be accepted, too, for The Angel Project (https://community.eveonline.com/news/news-channels/eve-online-news/the-angel-project/): 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 Gommel Nox and 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 will be 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 everyone know that, without a doubt, the game known for scams, deception, and war is still the best at being charitable.
