What is ZEvent?

Organized since 2016, the ZEvent is a rather special charity event in France. It brings together a large number of communities on the Twitch platform, across lives. Each streamer launches a live stream on their Twitch channel and asks their community to participate by making donations. This project is animated by two French streamers, Adrien Nougaret and Alexandre Dachary, better known as ZeratoR (1.4 million followers) and Dach.

How much money does it bring?

For the first edition, 170,000 euros were donated to the Save The Children association. Since then, the kitten has literally taken off: 500,000 euros in 2017 for the French Red Cross, one million euros in 2018 for Doctors without borders, 3.5 million euros in 2019 for the Institut Pasteur, 5.7 million euros in 2020 for Amnesty International and more than 10 million euros last year for Action Against Hunger.

A false start for the 2022 edition

ZEvent will support the ecological cause this year, but the elected association is not yet known. A few days ago a small controversy broke out around the one who had been chosen. The GoodPlanet foundation had been chosen, but this choice did not get consensus within the French Twitch community. Some have criticized him for his links with large companies such as TotalEnergies, BNP Parisbas or EDF. GoodPlanet has taken note of this and ZeratoR has decided to submit the choice of the association to its community.

Five associations will share the sum

This year we will work very differently and offer you a list of associations structurally capable of handling such a sum.ZeratoR announced in a social media post on Saturday. After a vote, we will keep your five favorite associations, which will split the sum equally.

ZeratoR invites voters not to rush to vote and take the time to reflect: ” You have 72 hours to inquire, ask questions, consult their site, etc. You will not find any consensus associations on this list, but it is by working with everyone that we will move forward.

What associations are in the running?

Everyone is involved in the ecological cause, but in different ways. The SeaCleaners and Wings of the Ocean fight against plastic pollution of the seas, the Association for the Protection of Wild Animals (ASPAS) and the League for the Protection of Birds (LPO) are more involved in the animal cause, Teragir and WeForest rather they want to support companies to invest in sustainable development projects … There will surely be some that will please you. The key is to keep only five …
