Hurricane Sandy Relief
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, millions of people on the East Coast are now without power, food, water, and homes. AZUBU and the Collegiate Starleague are issuing a call to the ESPORTS community to aid those in need through an all-day charity event, the AZUBU Hurricane Sandy Relief Tournament.
On November 8, from 11am-11pm PST, join AZUBU and the Collegiate Starleague in a series of tournaments, showmatches, guest-appearances, and fun community events. Viewers will be encouraged to donate to the Chip-In fund, in which 10% of donations will go to a prize pool for a 1v1 tournament and 90% will be donated to the American Red Cross.
Individuals who have donated will be eligible to sign up and play in the 1v1 tournament. Contributors who have donated are not forced to play in the 1v1 tournament.
The event features a 1v1 tournament -- pay what you want -- where 10% of donations will go to prize pool while the majority 90% will be donated to the American Red Cross.
"The Red Cross has provided more than 23,000 overnight shelter stays since Saturday. Tuesday night, more than 9,000 people stayed in 171 Red Cross shelters across 13 states.
On the ground, the Red Cross has more than 2,300 Red Cross disaster workers from all over the country who have served more than 100,800 meals and snacks. The Red Cross has activated nearly 200 emergency response vehicles that are beginning to circulate through some communities distributing meals, water and snacks."
