Today between 1-5 PM PDT, 4-9 PM EDT, or 9PM to 2AM GMT, you can watch the GuardianCon Charity Livestream over on Twitch. The official livestream is being hosted by the GuaridanCon Twitch channel, but there will be plenty of big streamers out there hosting the stream I’m sure. Bungie have laid out a lot of incentives for donating, as well as some other stuff surrounding the event, so let’s dive in a check out what’s going on.
Firstly, there will be a Bungie employee playing Destiny 2 on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC, switching at different times. There is a bounty for killing said employees you’ll get eternal glory, and the Sign of Mutual Combat Emblem. For the first hour Bungie will be in Crucible Quickplay, for the second they’ll be in Gambit Prime, and for the third and fourth they’ll be in Iron Banner.

This event is going to be incredible, and it always raises so much money for charity. It’s important to remember that the cause is what we’re supporting here, and even though Bungie is setting aside a mere 4 hours for the event, they’re going to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help children who need it. I hope you all tune in later today to check out the stream at the very least, if not throw some money in for the chance to win something cool.
