Today’s the day. Operation Supply Drop’s 4thannual game-a-thon enlists the incredible gaming community willing to do silly from 12 p.m. (EST) Saturday to Sunday. Course, if you’re like me, you don’t have the time to dedicate to the all-day affair or your laptop / console / toaster / PC can’t stream (GET ON THAT). That’s fine.
No, that’s great actually because channels need viewers such as yourself. How can you follow all those? Simply glue your eyes to the 8-Bit Salute hashtag, follow the official Operation Supply Drop Twitter account for updates, or poke a look at every fundraising team. Additionally, Twitch and MLG.TV both host landing pages full of streamers ready to knock his or her sleep schedule off. Being that 8-Bit Salute gains significant steam every year since its inception back in 2012, you’ll need to sit down to figure out who is involved. Sounds daunting, right?
Well, consider this article your 8-Bit Salute “TV Guide.” We’ll tell (and link to) you the big fundraising teams, streamers, notable personalities, and those special rewards specific to the fundraising team. Below are the list of organizations and communities supporting 8-Bit Salute.
