United Kingdom – July 11th, 2019 – Method will once again be running a charity drive in partnership with the global humanitarian organization Save the Children during the upcoming Race to World First: The Eternal Palace event.
The last time Method and Save the Children partnered up in the RWF: The Battle of Dazar'alor earlier this year, both our goals were shattered as we raised $17,000 - a full $7,000 more than we were aiming for! This time around Save the Children is celebrating their 100th anniversary and so we're setting our sights higher and are hoping our amazing community will help us raise $20,000 during the race. Viewers of the Race to World First will have the option to make a donation during the event by visiting this link, and we're excited to see what we can accomplish together.
Maral Moghadasi, Save the Children Charity Gaming Consultant:
Over the last several years Save the Children has partnered with the online gaming community and content creators across platforms like Twitch, YouTube and Facebook to help in our efforts to ensure that every last child has the chance to grow up healthy and safe. We are thrilled and honoured to have Method celebrate Save the Children's 100th anniversary and mission by choosing us as their beneficiary for yet another Race to World First. This time for The Eternal Palace.
The Race to World First: The Eternal Palace will be taking place starting July 16th in the early evening (BST) from the TakeTV studios in Krefeld, Germany, with a bigger event than ever before, hosting an additional 7 guilds and their streams and streamers. The event will be streamed on https://www.twitch.tv/method and you can read the official announcement for more information about the event.
