As some of you are probably aware, I was one of the first people to raise money for charity through 'Sea of Thieves.' Over 500$ was donate to the Wounded Warriors Project back in 2017. A record of this endeavor is available at https://www.seaofthieves.com/community/forums/topic/56350/rescue-a-pirate-save-a-soldier
More recently, I helped several members of the community raise 450£ for Tommy's, an organization that uses donations to fund research into miscarriage, premature birth & stillbirth, and provide free pregnancy health information to parents-to-be.
Since then, I have been trying to figure out how to contribute to the charity scene in a way that the community hasn't seen before - and in a manner that wouldn't leave me penniless after the fact. And what's when I came up with the idea for the subject of this post.
A Cutthroat Arenathon event will occur every December 22nd of the year. From early morning to late afternoon, Pacific Standard Time, I and three other pirates will set sail in the Arena aboard a galleon and attempt to earn as much silver as we possibly can during each match. The final total will then be converted into dollars and submitted to a charity that will be chosen beforehand.
Every thousand pieces of silver earned will equate to a United States dollar (USD). That means that if our ship happens to accumulate, say, over 5,000 pieces of silver by the end of one match, the chosen charity will be due 5$. However, shoulder our crew happen to find themselves serving aboard the Good Boy, that donation will automatically be doubled at the end of the match; 5$ becoming 10$.
Now, unfortunately I cannot stream these events. I lack the capability. However, I do know some people who can. If it turns out that they are willing and able to on the day in question, I will put out a Tweet (@SkolDuggary) with the #BeMorePirate and #SeaOfThieves hashtags so that the community will know when and where to tune in!
Regardless of whether or not the event is streamed, I will be submitting screenshots of the donation page after the fact, so that everyone knows that I'm not just blowing smoke!
Thank you, whoever you are, for taking the time to read this message. If it resonates with you, I implore you to ❤ it and spread it around with the #BeMorePirate and #SeaOfThieves hashtags included!
See you soon, mateys!
