Fight For Relief is a day of charity fighting game tournaments intended to raise funds for Japan relief efforts due to the earthquake and resulting tsunami that devastated the nation on March 11. It consists of two fighting game tournaments that will both be broadcast via a unified justin.tv stream, which will also accept online donations from viewers like you.
For the first time, two of the fighting game community’s premier streaming groups, iPLAYWINNER and Level | Up Series, in cooperation with Etrium Gaming District and the Fighting Gamers @ UCI, will be collaborating to broadcast an entertaining online show featuring giveaways, special guest interviews and top-level play in Super Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs Capcom 3 from the likes of EG Justin Wong, Alex Valle, John Choi and other competitive legends — all with the intention of raising awareness and donations along the way.
All tournament proceeds and donations raised from Fight for Relief will go towards a collective fundraiser on GlobalGiving.org, a website dedicated to social change and helping victims of natural disasters. More specifically, donations and proceeds will go towards a direct fund dedicated to Japan Earthquake and Tsunami relief efforts.
Through this event fighting game competitors and gamers alike will come together through our favorite hobby to help our fellow man in need.

For everyone else, we look forward to seeing you live via justin.tv/fightforrelief on April 3!
