FREMONT, CA, July 26th, 2019 – CORSAIR®, a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced its upcoming 2019 CORSAIR Charity Drive to support Save the Children, helping give children around the world a healthy start in life, an opportunity to learn, and protection from harm. CORSAIR will organize a full week of gaming streams in collaboration with partners from the CORSAIR Streamer Program from July 29th to August 5th. CORSAIR is aiming to raise over $25,000, matching every dollar up to $15,000.
CORSAIR hosted its first streamer charity event in 2017, which saw eight streamers split into two teams competing against each other in a variety of games for charity. During the event, viewers donated over $13,000 and CORSAIR matched every dollar, bringing the total amount raised to over $27,000. The goal this year is to put on another incredible event featuring Anne Munition, GiantWaffle, Loserfruit, Sp4zie, and more.
“Gamers have proven to be one of the most charity-minded communities. We are grateful that so many gamers and streamers have chosen to partner with Save the Children,” said Paul Butcher, AVP of Global Digital Strategy. “Thank you to our partners at CORSAIR for making us a part of their 2019 Charity Drive, we look forward to another successful event.”
“We couldn’t be happier to help contribute to such a noble cause as Save the Children,” said Andy Paul, Founder and CEO of CORSAIR. “Our last charity drive proved that our customers are just as passionate about helping children around the world as they are about gaming, and we can’t wait to see what kind of difference we can all make together this year.”
CORSAIR’s streaming community will be broadcasting throughout the week, and all donations received will go to Save the Children.
