The VR Charity Challenge Game Show is a social good initiative organized by esports brand ESL and Oculus, a leader in virtual reality technology. Featuring VR gaming competitions that aim to raise money for a good cause, this game show spotlights two teams that compete for a prize valued at $100,000.
These teams consist of influencers representing one of two gaming charities -- Stack Up, a nonprofit that supports veterans, or Take This, a nonprofit providing mental health support and resources for those in the gaming community.
Aiming to help support a good cause through an emerging form of entertainment, ESL and Oculus capitalize on the popularity of game streaming platforms like Twitch to launch their own immersive series. Through this initiative, the two brands help gamify giving and help charitable organizations while ensuring participants and viewers are having fun at the same time.
