Assassin's Creed Streamers Raise Over $5,000 For Syria And Turkey In One Day




On February 6, a devastating series of earthquakes struck south-central Turkey and northwestern Syria. The first one measured a 7.8, while the second nine hours later was a 7.7 on the Richter scale. These were followed by hundreds of aftershocks. When the dust cleared, hundreds of buildings collapsed leaving tens of thousands trapped in the rubble. Already 50,000 are reported dead, and it may be weeks before a final death toll is compiled.

It's not an exaggeration to call these earthquakes the worst natural disaster in modern Turkish and Syrian History. And given the significance of these countries to Assassin's Creed fans, it only makes sense that they'd band together to offer financial relief for the stricken countries.

The Assassin’s Creed Community Relief is a community-led effort from Assassin's Creed fans to raise funds for Turkish and Syrian reconstruction and to offer aid to families left without food, water, or shelter. "Our goal is to mobilize Assassin’s Creed fans around the world to contribute to our fundraiser for people impacted by the earthquakes and their aftereffects," reads the group's site. The fundraising drive began yesterday with the help of several Assassin's Creed content creators and community sites, including AC Landmarks, AC Sisterhood, Access The Animus, the Assassin's Creed Subreddit, and many more.

With an initial goal of raising $5,000 USD, the Community Relief fundraiser smashed that goal in just 21 hours. Events continue today with SophiaEA16 who takes us through the streets of Istanbul with Ezio in tow. Tomorrow, streamer LeoK Rogue will broadcast Rogue Academy LIVE from 1 PM ET (10 AM PT). There are plenty more interviews, Game streams, podcasts, and newscasts, so check out the fundraiser website for the full schedule.

And to sweeten the deal, the Assassin’s Creed Community Relief effort is providing a bunch of prizes that you can win. Those include an Assassin's Creed 15th Anniversary vinyl box set, a PureArts Amunet the Hidden One 1/8th-scale PVC statue, 20 Assassin's Creed - The Ezio Collection digital Game codes for the Nintendo Switch, quite a few Valhalla and Ragnarok Game codes, art books, board Games, and more. There are also two grand prizes Assassin's Creed 15th Anniversary Collector's Boxes available, but those will only go to higher-level donations.

Head to the Assassin’s Creed Community Relief site to donate and check out the schedule of events.
