I am a pre-med college graduate, and through my undergrad study one of my favorite times of year was taking an annual trip to locations in need of help from natural disasters, economic despair, or other unfortunate circumstances. Fresh out of school with debt and a new job I will be unable to make that trip this year but my friends and I decided to set what time aside we do have to host a charity drive stream for the American Red Cross and throw a little help towards the disaster in Nepal. To date over 6800 people have been found dead with little hope of finding survivors. Numerous organizations have contributed to the effort over the last week but malnutrition, unrest, and a lack of immediate aid continue to be a threat to Nepal.

We have all been playing Smite since early beta but mostly stick to casual play. We have former professional gamers (Call of Duty), several 4x WoW Gladiators, and a homeless Australian grill that plays out of a van. The stream is likely to be split between Smite, GTA 5, and some Worms. Come hang out and support a great cause :)
