The charity is for Gamers Outreach which provides recreation to children in hospitals through the power of video games and the gaming community. Hospitalization can often be a lonely, isolating, and scary experience for young people. We ease those burdens by providing equipment, technology, and software that help kids cope with long-term treatment.
Battlegrounds has stated that they will be matching up to $100,000. Currently, with 2 of the 3 EU matches done, Battlegrounds has raised $48,000.
With streamers like Summit1G, Lirik, Dr. Disrespect, TimtheTatman and Josh OG still to come, I’m certain they will smash that initial goal.
Make sure you support the streamers and especially the charity during the day and enjoy some quality Battlegrounds gameplay.
