Newegg partnered with ASUS for the Build Together, Give Together charity challenge, inviting PC builders, gamers and modders to build for a cause in August 2021. In celebration of the growing PC-building community, the Build Together, Give Together challenge encouraged aspiring builders and tech enthusiasts alike to share their PC builds and donate to their favorite charity. To help support the cause, Newegg and ASUS created a high-end PC build that was later auctioned off, the proceeds of which were donated to charity.
“For many of us at ASUS, PC building is more than just a hobby – it’s a way to make new friends, bond with our loved ones, and connect with a global community of builders and tech enthusiasts,” said Jackie Hsu, ASUS Senior Vice President and Co-Head of the Open Platform Business Group and AIoT Business Group. “To celebrate our community and the ways PC building brings us together, we’re proud to launch the Build Together, Give Together challenge alongside our closest partners to spread the joys of PC building in light of these wonderful causes.”
To kick off the Build Together, Give Together challenge, Newegg’s CEO Anthony Chow assembled ASUS Gundam Edition parts and components to build an RTX 3080 gaming PC. The PC was donated to Gamers Outreach, a charity that provides hospitalized children access to gaming equipment while they receive medical care.
