Esport event organizers 983 Media have announced a charity event to bring the Competitive Card Game community together and raise funds for the Covid-19 Response aid.
The event is appropriately named…Cards for Humanity.
It’s no secret that the world is in a bizarre place right now, and for all the chaos happening around us, there are also a lot of good deeds taking place. 983 Media is adding to that list of good deeds by organizing not one, not two, not even three but four competitive CCG tournaments in some of the genres biggest games.
Cards for Humanity will bring the communities from Magic: The Gathering Arena, Mythgard, Gwent, and Legends of Runeterra together to face off in their chosen game.
The top 8 for each of the four events will be aired on 983 Media’s Twitch channel on Saturday the 18th April in a monster 16-hour charity production.
Cards for Humanity has been fully backed by the developers and publishers involved, who have provided a variety of in-game goodies to not only compete for but to also giveaway to viewers of the event.
The fundraising target for the event is $1000, with every penny raised going to the Covid-19 Response Unit. Over the course of the 16-hour production, there will be an opportunity for the viewers to donate towards the funding goal.
