Twitch’s Announcement:

Twitch made an announcement highlighting how the process unfolds.  100% of anything cheered using Bits is donated to the charity for which money is raised. Child’s Play has ensured kids have access to games, play, and entertainment since around 2003.

Twitch has used some clever wording on how this process works. Basically, every $1.00 for 100 Bits is donated to the charity. 100 Bits costs $1.40. Twitch normally gives one cent to each live streamer per bit cheered.

Other Donation Methods:

If you wanna make Jeff Bezos day, you can sidestep his cut, and donate directly to their website. If you decide to utilize this method, be sure to check out the matches on Twitch! It’s always an entertaining time watching some of the Leagues best players go head to head.

Tonight, August 25, the All-Star Event kicks off at midnight BST. IF you’re a night owl like I, you’ll stand a great chance seeing this live. Big names like Kim “Geguri” Se-yeon and Park “Saebyeolbe” Jong-ryeol. These two players will represent the Pacific and Atlantic divisions, competing in various game modes, such as Lucioball and mystery heroes.

There is also a rumored 1v1 Widowmaker tournament between various players and hosts. You don’t want to miss the variety of OW talent, showcasing and showing off their skills.

The main event will -reasonably – be tomorrow at 7pm BST. So, get your Bits (see what I did there?) over to the official Twitch for the Overwatch League, and cheer for your favourite players, and help bring gaming to children who need it.
