Can I donate with items?

Will I get a medal for donating?

Unfortunately we do not posses the ability to give donation medals to donators, like many other groups in a similar situation.

Why do you not have medals and others do?

Currently, Valve's current decision is to not accept new medals, as we were too late to submit our own. Other groups and organizations today with the ability to give medals managed to get their medals before that decision was made.

When do donations close?

Donations close on January 3rd, 2022. Certain incentives will close at the end of the livestream weekend, so make sure not to miss it!
