It is coming up to that time of year again! Unreal Aussies is coming together to do our part in raising much needed funds for Beyond Blue. Beyond Blue
provides information and support for mental health issues, for example, depression and anxiety. This helps everyone in Australia achieve their best potential, whatever their age and wherever they live.
This will be our fourth fundraising event for Beyond Blue and our second in-person event. Last year we raised a whopping $5,319.69 for the charity and had over 30 different streamers involved in the event. Unreal Aussies has now raised a total of $7,920.69 over our three events. This year we aim to be bigger and better than ever with a new goal of $10,000 AUD. The event will be held on Saturday 27th July 2019 in the Brisbane/Gold Coast area and will run for roughly 10 hours. The games list is currently TBA.
We’re looking for help!
We’re always aiming to improve our events. A big part of that is the volunteers who contribute their time, and sometimes a decent amount of money to be able to attend the event. Dynovnrks will be reprising his role of Host, joined this time by the very talented RubeePlays. Similarly, our casting team this year sees the return of Kitfox confirmed. Additionally, we’re actively looking for more talent in this area.
The business side of the Oceanic gaming scene is getting involved this year. For instance, Logitech ANZ has kindly offered to put up some hardware to give away on the day. We are also looking for businesses that would like to match donations dollar-for-dollar during an hour on the day. Interested in sponsoring the event? Find out more here.

- RubeePlays (Host)
