BLAST x MENTAL HEALTH ACTION DAY
This year BLAST proudly partnered with Mental Health Action Day. During May we were part of the largest day of action on mental health in history, with the goal of driving people to support their own and other’s mental wellbeing.
By driving attention to free and easily-accessible resources, we can reinforce that everyone has mental health, and it is time we all take care of our emotional wellbeing. Mental Health Is Health.
Today marks the beginning of #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek and BLAST's proud partnership with Mental Health Action Day ????

BLAST x SPECIAL EFFECT
Throughout the BLAST Premier 2020 Fall Season and Global Final, we collected fines from competing teams and organisations and donated these to gaming charity, Special Effect.
Special Effect harnesses the power of gaming by offering opportunities to those who might otherwise be unable to play due to their disability. Each person will have different requirements depending on their needs and abilities, SpecialEffect works closely with participants to create technology focussed around their capabilities.

BLAST x IWD2020
In March this year, BLAST collaborated with the fashion brand Champion and 30 high profile brand ambassadors within esports to launch the BLAST x Champion Charity Hoodie for International Women’s Day.
Every penny of profit from the sale of the hoodie went to our chosen charity, WAGGGS. Empowering girls and young women to reach their full potential is at the heart of what WAGGGS does, giving women confidence to challenge gender based violence, tackle body confidence issues and give them a global platform to help influence key decision makers.
For more our the campaign promise:
08/03 is #InternationalWomensDay where we choose to celebrate women's achievements, raise awareness against bias & take action for equality.
All week we'll be sharing stories of the women in esports who inspire us????

BLACK LIVES MATTER
During the Fall Showdown, BLAST stood with millions around the world to raise awareness for recent injustices and push for change alongside the BLM movement.
It was during this time we made our BLAST For Good initiative known, to create a level playing field in esports for any person gender, race or background.
Here are the ongoing ways you can support BLM:
Together we can create a more diverse and kind esports community, so we’re creating a BLAST For Good programme. More to follow. pic.twitter.com/RvvtGcv0HG
