I hope everyone is recovering well from their Independence Day festivities, because we have quite the announcement today. On July 12th, Matt Barker is running a 24 hour Twitch stream, raising donations for the Salt Lake City COVID-19 Mutual Aid Fund. This is a great opportunity for many of us to support our community directly, while also having an excellent time painting alongside Barker, so let’s get into the official details.
When: July 12th, 12:00 PM – July 13th, 12:00 PM
Why: Matt is fundraising for the SLC COVID-19 Mutual Aid Fund, where all donations will be going, to help support those who need it during the pandemic. Donations will go towards rent, food, and other bills that people may need to pay, but aren’t able to.
Donations Incentive Raffle
Matt has also put together some great incentives to raise donations, including a raffle! Matt will be raffling off the following items:
- Start Collecting Dhrukari + Codex
- Start Collecting Gloomspite Gitz + Battletome
- Start Collecting Kharadron Overlords + Battletome
- Cypher Lords Warcry Warband
- Wild Card (any unit, or single model from any 40k or AoS army)
- Game Grid Gift Certificate
So how does one get in on this raffle nonsense? It’s simple, you donate to the SLC COVID-19 Mutual Aid Fund during the stream, and provide proof of donation to Matt! Every $10.00 you donate will get you one entry into the raffle, and the raffle will commence at the end of the stream.
But that is still not the end of it, in addition to raffling off prizes for donations, Matt will also match all donations given, up to $200.00! This is an awesome opportunity to raise money for a good cause, and really help out those in need, while also watching a very talented local painter.
As for the content, Matt has obtained the recently released Lumineth Realm-Lords Army Set, and will be painting the entire box on stream! What better way to familiarize yourself with this brand new faction then to see them put together from the base up. It’s going to be both interesting and potentially a learning experience too if you’re new or still learning miniature painting.
Hopefully we’ll see you tune in, even if it’s only for ten minutes, and hopefully you’ll donate yourself, even if it’s just $1.00. Humans haven’t gotten as far as we have by ignoring those in need, but by sticking together when we need it the most.
