Charity Hammer 3: The Charity of the Hammerous

Are you a Warhammer fan? Did you know Charity Hammer 3: The Charity of the Hammerous is just around the corner. Join in the fun and help support Child’s Play! We recently connected with Colin Sherman to get the deets. 

What is Charity Hammer?

Charity Hammer is a competitive Warhammer 40k streaming event for charity, hosted by the Best in Faction podcast. It brings together forty skilled and successful 40k players to stream competitive 40k games for charity. There will be:

  •     Three streams, each running for 73 hours straight
  •    Some of the most successful 40k players in the last five years, representing a wide variety of factions and playstyles, and...
  •    Raffles, special stream games, and other hilarious events.

This year's goal?  

Since 2018, Charity Hammer has raised over $40,000 in just three years! We hope to raise $20,000 from just this one event!. If successful, many bearded men will sacrifice their facial hair for your entertainment.


Charity Hammer will begin on Thursday, August 5th at 2:00 pm Pacific (3:00 pm EST)  and close on  Sunday, August 8th at 3:00 pm Pacific (6:00 pm EST)


All Charity Hammer streams and events will be free to watch. However, we encourage you to donate! Aside from the obviously great cause, donations will earn raffle tickets for great prizes.


Chance to Win?

We are giving out tons of loot, including nearly 4000 points of painted Necrons, a beautiful painted Knight, and thousands of dollars in 40k box sets.  Every $30 you donate gets you a raffle ticket, prizes will be drawn during every game of the event.  Also during the event there will be trivia questions that also can get you chance to win tickets.
