EarlyGame Awards In Favor Of Laureus Sport for Good: Social Act of the Year 2023

The EarlyGame Awards in favor of Laureus Sport for Good Germany 2023 is not only a charity project itself, but also honors the Social Act of the Year.

Social Act of the Year
Which person/group was most social this year?

Since our EarlyGame Awards are in favor of Laureus Sport for Good Germany, a category like Social Act of the Year is extremely important to us. Many of our favorite Influencers actively advocate for the unfortunate and try to make the world a little better.

Therefore, we want to honor those who have done some good in 2022 and who have helped people.

Social Act of the Year - Nominees

Friendly Fire (Gronkh, PietSmiet & Co.)

Every year Friendly Fire returns and collects a large sum of donations for a good cause. Even the 8th time around the stream of Gronkh, Pietsmiet and Co., entertained us for 12 hours with a good mix of games and challenges.

With a solid sum of €1.102.830 we simply have to nominate this social act. It's especially cool that the collected money went to a variety of different organizations and associations.

Loot für die Welt (LeFloid, Spacefrogs & Co.)

Another annual campaign is, of course, Loot für die Welt. This year, Berlin's influencers again diligently streamed for 36 hours, raising €334,710 in the process.

We thought it was especially cool that 2 streams were running simultaneously. One on Twitch, which was mostly filled with party games, and one on YouTube, both about gaming. So there was something for everyone and we were even more motivated to donate.

Of course, great events are noteworthy, but in our opinion, a lot of applause should go to Letsplay4Charity. Throughout the year, the organization streams multiple times for a good cause.

Overall, many spectators were able to become active again and again. Therefore, we have nominated this campaign here, because it takes a lot of perseverance and vigor to score again and again!

The last year was very much marked by the war in the Ukraine. At the beginning of the year, these 4 guys thought they wanted to get active and collected donations for emergency aid through a stream.

All three rappers have a personal connection to Ukraine, so this was especially near and dear for them. The people have also noticed that, which is why over 100,000 € came together for the campaign. To spontaneously deliver like that for a good cause simply has to be honored with a nomination!

Gaming gegen Krebs

A little ray of light can bring a lot of comfort. The Gaming gegen Krebs team thinks the same thing. Every November, they organize various streamers in a big campaign to provide dog-assisted therapy for people with cancer.

We think that such a unique initiative definitely needs to be highlighted. There is a lot of heart in this and sweet doggies, which in our opinion, everyone deserves.

Play4Water (Fabienne, Eko Fresh, Gentleman etc.)

Time for some soccer! Esports.com organized together with Viva con Agua and EA Sports an event for FIFA 22. The goal was to collect donations for water well projects and clean drinking water in Ethiopia and Uganda.

It's pretty amazing that the campaign was shown on TV on ProSieben Maxx and online as a livestream on several platforms. An impressive amount of stars and influencers also participated. That's how Play4Water scored a goal with us for the nomination!

As gamers, diversity is very important to us, in game genres and in nature. With that in mind, WWF has launched a collective fundraising campaign to preserve the diversity of wildlife this year.

Everyone can simply stream for the charity, no matter if big or small. In total, this idea has raised over €30,000 and the campaign is still going on, so get streaming!


Mif Com

Gaming is a hobby that is not limited by country borders. MIFCOM has proven that this year, because the two CEOs are from Ukraine and Russia. At the beginning of the year, they wanted to set an example and together they created #Mifcomhilft.

With a direct line on site, the PC builder supported a local aid center in Vinnjica with donations of over €20,000. Our opinion: A strong symbol deserves a place on this list.

Fragging for Charity

It's always cool when developers mobilize the community themselves. Riot has done this for the third time with Fragging for Charity. Since it's a huge tournament, we were all rooting for the good cause.

With almost €80,000 for a variety of organizations, this clearly shows how seriously the Valorant community takes such an event, and therefore we say hats off and here you go: A nomination!


7 Days to Charity 6

Our final nomination goes to 7DaysToCharity, because their campaign is for children with cancer. Various participants stream a PvP match in the game 7 Days with their own new map. The whole thing is meant to entertain and collect donations for the little ones in need.

For the sixth time, this social act has now been organized, and this year has raised €24,500. As a thank you, the team posted a long video of the donation handover and exact in-depth details from the Förderkreis Bonn. Our hearts soared while watching it.

If you want to donate, now you have another chance in order to win an awesome gaming PC from MIFCOM and many other prizes:
