Skillz, which has a platform for mobile esports, is launching mobile game tournaments to raise donations for the American Red Cross.
Starting on Saturday and running over the weekend, Skillz will host mobile game tournaments where players can donate to the American Red Cross, in hopes of alleviating severe blood shortages caused by COVID-19.
Through proceeds from mobile esports tournaments, Skillz will help the American Red Cross ensure a safe and reliable blood supply for patients in need during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
