Twitch Shows Support for Summer Games Done Quick 2013Jul 25 2013 · 0 comments · Events, News
Speed Demos Archive’s annual Summer Games Done Quick charity marathon is currently live on Twitch, gathering some of the best speedrunners in the world for a great cause. Viewers are encouraged to make a donation to the group’s fundraiser, the proceeds of which will go directly to Doctors Without Borders. With their previous marathon raising close to half a million dollars, there’s no doubt that SDA knows how to raise funds for great causes.
To that end, Twitch is getting in on the action by offering $50 per 1,000 peak concurrents, and up to $5,000 in total. For example, if SGDQ reaches 50,000 concurrent viewers, we’ll donate $2,500, and when they reach 100,000 viewers, we’ll donate $5,000. It’s our way of showing appreciation for the incredible efforts of the speedrunning community, while encouraging you all to tune in, spread the word, and make a donation of your own.
