Oleg Krot and Yuri Lazebnikov from TECHIIA Holding host a charity marathon against coronavirus

Today we launch an international charity Dota 2 eSports marathon called WeSave! Charity Play by WePlay! Esports, which is part of the TECHIIA holding. Viewers of the tournament's online broadcast will be able to donate to the international charitable foundations of CEPI and GlobalGiving. The money goes for creating a COVID-19 vaccine and fighting a pandemic.


The money that we can raise with the eSports community, teams and our partners will be split equally between the two organizations - GlobalGiving and CEPI

The online marathon will run from March 20 to March 26 and the official broadcast will be on Twitch in Ukrainian, Russian and English. Also, thanks to the broadcast partners, Chinese, French, German, Portuguese, Turkish, Spanish, and Arabic languages are also available. So viewers from anywhere in the world will be able to join the fundraiser.

WePlay! Esports has set up a $ 120,000 prize pool with an option to increase it. Anyone who wants to help or speed up the creation of a coronavirus vaccine, from sponsors to spectators, will be able to increase the prize pool via online donations.

WePlay! Esports tournaments traditionally attract large audiences. WePlay! Bukovel Minor has set a world record for online watch duration in the category of minors, over 5.4 million hours. So with WeSave! Charity Play founders of TECHIIA hold plans to engage hundreds of thousands of eSports fans in an important mission - the creation of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“The money that we can raise with the eSports community, teams and our partners will be split equally between the two organizations - GlobalGiving and CEPI. If transfers to the first fund can be of benefit almost instantaneously as they promptly target the purchase of masks, artificial ventilation equipment and medicines needed for hospitals, in the case of CEPI donations will go to the creation of a coronavirus vaccine, which will take some time” said Yuriy Lazebnikov, Managing Partner at TECHIIA Holding.

Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) is an international fund based in Oslo, Norway, that raises funds to create a vaccine for infectious diseases and coronavirus. GlobalGiving is a global charitable foundation headquartered in Washington, USA, that helps not only those affected by COVID-19 worldwide but also people at risk.

Along with the global initiative, the founders of TECHIIA Holding are implementing charity projects in Ukraine, purchasing the necessary equipment for hospitals in Ukraine.


"We are mobilizing the global eSports community to address the global goal of creating the vaccine that is needed by everyone in the world as soon as possible," says Oleg Krot, Managing Partner at TECHIIA holding.

WePlay! Esports Company encourages all betting companies to accept bets on this tournament only if these funds are donated to CEPI and Global Giving. Follow the WeSave Tournament! Charity Play on WePlay! Esports and Twitch channels.

FYI. TECHIIA is a Ukrainian technology holding, which in 2019 consolidated the companies of two founders - Oleg Krot and Yuriy Lazebnikov. The holding includes an eSports company, an IT product and service company, a stuffed toy company, a development company, and a venture studio. The holding is actively involved in charity through the Tehiia Foundation, in particular helping the regional children's hospital in Kropyvnytskyi.
