Charity Knife Build-off and Auction

Recommended Posts

Utilizing Twitch.tv, CHicks0904 and BuildMakeShare have devised a series of events that will be coming up next month. We are entering into the #MakerBreakBattles2019 challenge along with WoodworkingWithMrJim and a select handful of special guest artisans. 

What is MakerBreakBattles2019?

MakerBreakBattles2019 is the first of its kind (we think) Makers & Crafting streamer showdown for charity. We have partnered with StackUp.org to raise money for veterans. Stack Up is a veteran focused, games-based charity that has a passion for suicide prevention. Stack Up brings both veterans and civilian supporters together through a shared love of video gaming through their primary programs: The Stacks, Supply Crates, Air Assaults and the Stack Up Overwatch Program [StOP]

How will MakerBreakBattles2019 work?

Our plan is to have a 3 week long knife build off between CHicks0904 and BuildMakeShare that brings people together to watch the crafting of two unique blades. WoodworkingWithMrJim will also be crafting a very unique wooden flag in his channel. During this time, there will be donation links available to those who want to show support, as well as sponsor driven side content showcasing their products. ALL PROCEEDS will go to Stack Up. 

At the end of the build, an auction will be held so you can have a chance to own one of the knives or flags from the build! The link to the auction will be available after builds are complete. Again, ALL PROCEEDS will go to Stack Up. 

When will we know that streams are live?

In order to watch the making of each piece, get on Twitch.tv and follow each of the makers. Be sure to turn on “go-live” notifications so you’ll be aware of when the stream starts. The links to each maker’s channel is as follows:

Right on @SteveShimanekand thank you for your service. I know that this sort of event may not be in line with the interests of most forum members since its a live-streamed event on the interwebs, but I felt compelled to share. Spreading the word gets more people in the stream, which means more potential money raised for Stack Up. Also more exposure for the ending auctions.
