Razer is inviting gamers to help out with the current global health crisis. Gamers can now exchange their Razer Silver for mask donations to frontline health workers. In addition to helping frontline healthcare workers, the program encourages people to stay indoors, which can help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). So far, over 30,000 masks have been donated through the program.
People can earn Razer Silver in a variety of ways. One free way to earn Razer Silver is to launch games through Razer Cortex, a game optimization software from Razer. It's available on PC and Android devices. Razer Cortex has paid to play games that allow you to earn Razer Silver by playing them. Razer Silver can be exchanged for Razer hardware, gift cards, and games, but people can now elect to trade in their Razer Silver for mask donations.
"We are calling on the gaming community to do what we do best, stay home and game on, and now for a good cause, too," said Min-Liang Tan, chief executive officer at Razer. "Razer's unique ecosystem of hardware, software and services has always been geared towards the gamer and now we have a way to allow the gaming community to directly contribute to Razer's key COVID-19 initiatives. For those who are game enough to rise to the challenge, we are excited to see how many masks we can pledge together."
Gamers can also contribute to mask donations using Razer Gold, a virtual currency from Razer. You can read more about the program on Razer's website.
