Just thought I'd let you all know that QB just started a 12-hour charity livestream to support 2 really nice causes. In addition to all our donations he himself will throw in all the ad rev he gets from the stream.

Those charities he supports are well worth supporting.  Cancer research is pretty obvious. The Special Effect charity provides adapted game controllers for people with severe disabilities.  It allows people to play video games which they wouldn't be able to otherwise. https://www.specialeffect.org.uk/ QB has a video about a visit he paid them some years ago.

I am not a QB fan (maybe for being so diplomatic vs WG, but I understand is part of the British culture that i am quite familiar with)....maybe once a week or two  I follow him stream...he gives good advice and tactic explications......but this event makes me wanna remove my hat and salute it. I followed him last year, the messages helped me out a bit since my father passed away right before the stream victim to this illness....This year I want to make a donation....So congrats to you QB for making this....and I strongly suggest that you do something similar right before Easter with the same exact purpose

BRAVO !

£17000 raised so far, it would be good if some could be donated to cure your attitude, but your life is your own creation.

Yeah so he gauged it really well.  Made the target with an hour to go.

 

And it turns out he's bounced a total of a hundred thousand pounds combined across the years.  

 

Where is WunderWurst I wonder?

You can think what you want about QB's content, but he's now raised over £100,000 to charity over his 5 annual charity streams. Sure, £50,000 to cancer research isn't going to change the world, but it's more about the awareness and idea, but for Special Effect is a smaller enterprise and the money he's raised them has surely had a noticeable impact in their ability to actually do stuff.

You could throw another 500 billion at it and watch the cancer rates stay the same for another 40 years.. The special effect one is no doubt making progress!! and worthy!

£50,000 will sponsor a crap-ton of post-graduate research which will lead to more results like breast/prostate and bowel cancer no longer being missed or misdiagnosed and treatable rather than fatal.

All it takes is one step.

£500 billion would have paid for stereostatic,ultrasound and MRI machines and the training in every major hospital in every major city in the world. I am not saying that giving money wont help of course it will but the cure is always around the corner and another few billion is all it takes yet cancer rates are rising at an alarming rate.. not dropping!!. Cancer care ,research and treatment in the UK and most other nations is a massive failure and a huge waste of resources. The sooner that is understood and spoken about the sooner it can be fixed and people can stop dying needlessly.

 

The whole cancer and lukemia enterprise generates Billions of revenue every year ask yourself if it might not be the greatest fraud the medical world has ever seen.

 

red pill delivered. all you need to do is swallow.

Then, when those people play this game.  The community calls them every name under the sun and feels justified doing so.

I dont think people are that selective. The names generally apply to everyone who is not them.

Meanwhile, rabies still has only a single treatment with a 5-6% success rate. :harp:
