Ellie’s Charity Invitational is a charity event hosted by twitch.tv/ellie4k in aid of Sea Shepherd, a global marine wildlife conservation organisation protecting our oceans. It's not only Ellie's birthday, but her first ever tournament and she is beyond excited to have TheViper, Mbl, Mr. Yo, DauT, JorDan, Slam, Hera, and Liereyy joining her for the 2-day event on February 27th and 28th. Dave will be co-casting the event on Saturday.
A prizepool of $2000 USD will be split 50/50 between Sea Shepherd and the players, with all additional funds raised going to charity. The games will be played vegan, so no taking of fish/hunt/herdables will be allowed. Why? Captain Paul Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd explains:
"My ships are vegan because we are conservationists. There are simply not enough fish in the sea to continue to feed the ever expanding populations of humanity. By 2030 every single commercial fishery on the planet will have been destroyed. We have already seen the destruction of the Northern cod, the bluefin tuna, the orange roughy, the Patagonia toothfish and so many more species. There is a major biological holocaust being waged against life in the oceans. More than 50% of the fish taken from the sea is converted into animal feed making pigs and cows the largest aquatic predators on the planet. Domestic chickens eat more fish than all the world's puffins. Domestic cats eat more tuna than all the world's seals together. We catch 50-70 fish from the sea to raise one farm raised salmon. We are vegans because it is an ecological crime to eat fish; we are vegans because we are marine conservationists."
