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

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
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
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
