The devastating California wildfires have damaged and destroyed thousands of homes, schools and other structures, directly affecting so many students and families.

Let’s help!!! The North America Scholastic Esports Federation (NASEF), a school-based nonprofit education program that uses gaming as a vehicle for learning, is rallying the esports and gaming community to help those in need. NASEF’s mission is to help students become society’s game changers: educated, productive, and empathetic individuals. Our core set of values is premised on helping others, so let’s come together and help!

We at NASEF know just how empathetic and caring the gaming and esports communities are. As such, please join NASEF’s sponsors, the Samueli Foundation and the Anaheim Ducks Foundation, who have generously offered to match up to $50,000 to the relief effort, in providing needed resources to those who have suffered such devastating losses.

Please accept this challenge and DONATE NOW...Every donation makes a difference...donations of $5 and $10 and $20 when combined with this matching challenge will have incredible impact. As a gaming and esports community, let’s show others how we care for those in need!

Individual donations will be combined with the matching grant and given to a variety of on the ground nonprofit charities to help meet the shelter, clothing, and educational needs of affected students and families.. Let’s rally together to make a difference in the lives of those who have lost so much!
