If you’re a fan of Resident Evil AND you want to help improve the world, you’ll get a chance to marry those two passions this October when TheSpeedGamers host a 72-hour non-stop livestream where they will play through multiple titles in the Capcom’s survival horror franchise while raising money for a good cause. Let’s run through the details, shall we?
Starting Friday, October 13th at 6pm CT, TSG will be playing through Resident Evil 0, 1 (REmake), 2, 3, Code Veronica, 4, 5 (with DLC), 6, 7 (with DLC), Revelations, and Revelations 2. If they somehow manage to beat all of those before the livestream is over, they say they’ll throw in some extra games for the fun of it.
TSG has teamed up with Direct Relief International as their charity of the livestream, with 100% of all donations made through PayPal or through the Twitch page going to the organization. Direct Relief’s mission is to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty and emergencies. Additionally, Capcom has committed to lending their support with prizes and promotion.
Direct Relief states, “[We’re] so excited to have the TSG crew back raising for Direct Relief! Let’s eradicate some Las Plagas!
TSG member Jasef Wisener explains, “Resident Evil has always been one of our favorite series, and we’re incredibly excited to be playing through the franchise again and very thankful to Capcom for helping us out so much with this event.”
John Helgeson, another TSG member, adds, “TSG is happy to be raising money for Direct Relief once again this October. Direct Relief provides so much good and aid towards the lives of people in crisis, and we want to be a part of keeping the support going to where it’s needed.”
Over the years, TheSpeedGamers have raised over $750,000 for various charities through their live streams. It’s beyond clear that they are committed to making the world a better place, so if you can tune in even for a little while to show your support for what they’re doing, it could make a big difference.
To watch the livestream, simply follow or subscribe to TSG on Twitch so that you’ll be kept up-to-date of the event.
