Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the rate of violent crimes against Asian Americans has dramatically increased. This issue hit a new peak following the murder spree that took place earlier this week in Georgia. In light of recent events, many of those around the gaming and entertainment industries have rallied their efforts to not only raise awareness, but raise money towards helping the cause. Casters and Cantrips has announced its own livestream going down this evening to raise money for #StopAAPIHate.
Casters and Cantrips took to its official Twitter account to share news of the charity stream. Stating later today, March 19, at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET, Casters and Cantrips will go live to raise funds and awareness for #StopAAPIHate. Those looking to donate can do so via the official Tiltify campaign, which currently has a goal of $500.
