Tip of the Hats: Item Donation Changes

Tip of the Hats 2018 is returning on Oct. 5th, and donations will be opening soon. In preparation for Tip of the Hats 2018, we've made a number of substantial changes to item donations. These changes serve to make donating to charity easier and more accessible than ever, and with more incentives to boot.

First, we've expanded the amount of different items we accept by over 10 times. These new items represent a very diverse range of TF2 items of all different kinds. It's almost a certainty that you'll have something you can donate!

Additionally, item donations are now able to bid put towards incentives. If you're unaware, incentives are a unique TotH system whereby donations go towards a common goal; for example, $10,000 to shave Getawhale's head. In previous years, item donations were unable to be used on incentives -- but that's no longer the case. Also, item donations now get put into the main donation reading queue; if you have something heartfelt to say in your donation, there's an equal chance it'll get read on-stream as if you had donated cash.

Finally, we've made a number of small tweaks that make the process significantly smoother. 

 

Tip of the Hats 2018 is running from October 5th to 7th, and it's going to be better than ever. Make sure to tune in!

The Blapature Co. Charity Bash, a 24-hour Team Fortress 2 charity livestream, kicks off this weekend! Starting on Saturday, July 28th, at 7pm CEST, join a host of personalities from the Team Fortress 2 community as they raise money for Child's Play Charity.

Everyone who donates at least $5 will receive a special in-game medal. There are additional medal styles available for larger donations! The stream will cover a large variety of gameplay types and content, including competitive TF2, custom community servers, TF2 trading and more!

The stream will be broadcast live on the Essentials.TF Twitch Channel. To donate cash, visit the event donation page. You can also donate in-game TF2 items through ScrapTF

Cash and item donations get combined when determining which medal you receive! For instance, donating $10 in items and $5 in cash will count as $15 total for your account.

Hey guys,

Hugs.tf -- an annual TF2 charity event supporting Special Effect -- is returning on April 21st and runs through April 22nd. Although it's not live yet, you can get in on the action early, as donations are now open!

As usual, you can donate with either cash or TF2 items. There is a spiffy medal up for grabs for anyone who donates a combined total of £10 or above. This threshhold can be reached by donating through any method (for example, donating £5 in cash and £5 in items will earn you a medal).

Thanks!
