That’s why this particular charity event is special, and it’s something gamers all over the world can take part in.

This cause is also dedicated to the current Black Lives Matter movement, challenging Americans to look at the current state of our system and the root of current injustices seen by the entire world. It’s about human rights, it’s about humanity, and it’s a phenomenal cause that these Warzone players will be fighting for.
