In March, the Fallout 76 community rallied around long-time roleplayer and community pillar CJ Martin. After a successful fundraiser to aid Martin and his family after a house fire, members of the Fallout 76 community have created a much larger effort to benefit St. Jude’s. A streaming event called Fallout For Hope will run from Dec. 14-20, with a number of Fallout streamers and content creators, both from 76 and other Fallout games.
There will be over 150 contributors to Fallout For Hope, including Bethesda employees like Bethesda vice president Pete Hines.
Behold! Just some of the #FalloutForHope community super stream team assembling to raise money for @StJudePLAYLIVE! Over 150 streamers and creators all over the world. One community. One voice. One cause! Dec 14 to 20th. https://t.co/hOe4mvoxo7 #fallout76 #fallout4 #falloutnv pic.twitter.com/QbFe3OFY1c— CHAD: A Fallout 76 Podcast ️ #FalloutForHope (@fchadfallout76) November 13, 2020
The initiative has already raised more than $3,000, despite not starting for another four days. Players will be streaming regular gameplay and PvP events, but also in-game karaoke and treasure hunts, live cooking recipes from the Fallout franchise, and mixology streams.
Bethesda’s QuakeCon team reached out to the community organizers behind CHAD: A Fallout 76 Podcast, and there will be three “main stage” events across multiple streams to host the biggest names among Fallout streamers and personalities.
