Panda Collaborates with Gamers for Giving

Panda had an exciting weekend collaborating with Gamers for Giving, a global charity event featuring competitive gaming tournaments, streaming marathons, and LAN parties to raise money for the Gamers Outreach organization! The charity event was hosted on March 20th and 21st.

Along with the many other streamers participating in the event, our Panda family was able to help contribute a significant amount to the nearly 1 million dollars raised in just two days! Panda raised $10,253, including reaching the donation goal for two GO Karts; one for Boston Children’s Hospital and the Children’s National Hospital. 

The charity hosting the event, Gamers Outreach, is an organization that empowers hospitalized children through video games. They are building a world where play is easily prioritized alongside research and treatment in order to bring a sense of normalcy for child patients. 

Gamers for Giving is a part of Panda’s goal to run and participate in at least 12 charitable events throughout 2021. By using our platform, we aim to organize events that combine our love of competitive gaming and giving back to charities who we strongly believe in.
