It’s that time of the year again, where it’s all about giving, sharing, and celebrating. And of course we wouldn’t have it any other way then to celebrate this time with you…
Frontier’s 24 Hour Charity Stream!
On 17 December, 2018 (midday UTC), Frontier will be starting our fourth annual Charity livestream to raise money for SpecialEffect[www.specialeffect.org.uk], a wonderful charity which helps people with physical disabilities use technology and play videogames. It’s a charity we are all incredibly passionate about, and last year we raised over £58,000 together with you all – we can’t wait to reach more milestones this year and have 24 hours full of fun activities for you to enjoy. We will be hosting several activities in the weeks to come as well as during the 24 hour stream, which will end on 18 December, midday UTC.
This year we’ve got another exciting Charity Auction lined up for you; this Auction features unique prizes that you can bid on, like two special Elite Dangerous paintjobs, signed props from our Jeff Goldblum interview earlier this year, or a unique Planet Coaster cushion set (and loads more, don’t worry!). We will post separately about all the prizes you can bid on in the coming week. All of the money from the Charity Auction goes to our Just Giving page for SpecialEffect, and you will receive your amazing prize (if you are the highest bidder) after the Charity stream.
The Charity Sweepstake is the final hour of the livestream (so 11AM UTC on 18 December) and it’s the hour during which we give out loads of amazing prizes to our wonderful community. For every £1 you donate to our Just Giving campaign[www.justgiving.com] between now and 18 December 11 AM UTC, you get 1 entry into the prize draw (so if you donate £10, you get 10 entries, and so forth). At the end of the stream we will pick winners together on screen, so make sure to donate and enter your email address (the optional field at donation, not as a comment) for a chance to win one of the following amazing prizes:
- Noblechairs ICON in white
- PlayStation 4 Pro
- Xbox One X
- Thrustmaster (for platform of your choice)
- Elgato StreamDeck Mini
- HyperX headsets
- Corsair HS50, GLAIVE Mouse, MM800 pad
- Frontier Goodiebag
- Frontier Game Bundle on the platform of your choice x3 (contains Elite Dangerous + Horizons, Planet Coaster Deluxe, Jurassic World Evolution, and LostWinds 1 + 2)
- Planet Coaster Vinyl
- Frontier £25 Merch Design Voucher x3
- … and much more!
You are changing lives by donating to SpecialEffect[www.justgiving.com] and for that we cannot thank you enough! During the 24 hour livestream, for every £1,000 we reach in donations, we have a milestone activation – this will unlock a special giveaway or some secret Frontier content for you! So do keep supporting the cause during the stream as much as you can, and help us reach our target goal of £30,000!
We’ve also enlisted the help of some fabulous community content creators to help us raise as much money as possible. During the 24 hours, we have a separate streaming schedule where you can always find someone playing the game or doing charity challenges with their communities. We will post the full roster as soon as possible.
Thank you as always for the incredible and valuable support during the past year; from the launch of Jurassic World Evolution to the community meet-ups and the countless game updates, it means the world to us to have you by our side. We hope you’re excited to join our cause and our celebration, and remember that it’s all going towards SpecialEffect. Every little bit makes a huge difference in someone else’s life.
See you on 17 December, 12PM UTC!
