What is this event about?

Blapature is home to a group of creative individuals originating from the Team Fortress 2 community. Together since 2017, we've raised over $200,000 USD for various charities including SpecialEffect.

BlapBash is our annual charity drive event with two days of live streams on Twitch.TV and we're back for 2022 raising money for SpecialEffect. Check out our Schedule to see the segments we have coming up!

When is the event?

July 30th & 31st at 12pm CEST.
12 hours each day until midnight (ish!)

What is “SpecialEffect”?

A UK-based charity that's leveling the playing field for gamers with physical disabilities around the world. This includes eye-tracking and adaptable controllers! Find more details about the work they do on their website here!

Where can I donate?

Donations are now open! You can donate cash here and donate TF2 items here!

Can I donate Items?

Yes, head over to our Scrap.TF page here to donate TF2 items!

Are there TF2 medals?

Yes we have medals available as a donation reward. However due to Valve's current rules, these are copies of our previous medals with new names and descriptions.

For 2022, we have brought back our first medal design as a brand-new tier, the BlapBash Advocator!

Can I receive all the medals if I donate enough?

Only our highest reward tier, BlapBash Advocator ($50+ USD), includes all the medals.

The lower reward tiers are not cumulative, for example: a Benefactor level donor ($25 - $49.99 USD) will only receive the Benefactor rewards; they will not receive the Supporter or Backer level rewards. However a donor may donate more money to receive a higher tier of medal, for example a $10 donation can later be followed by a $10 donation to receive the Supporter level reward instead of the Backer level reward.

Please see our terms & conditions for further information.

When do donations close?

Donations will typically close a couple weeks after our livestream event finishes.

Please keep an eye on our Twitter page @blapatureco and in our Discord server to know when.

When will the medals be sent out?

Medals will be distributed within 30 days from when the medals are added in TF2 by Valve, or the event ending; whichever is later. We will announce when medals have been distributed via our Twitter page @blapatureco and in our Discord server.

However, we are typically able to distribute the medals within two weeks after donations have closed and the medals have been added to TF2.
