Techathon is a charity livestream by the tech community, supporting Direct Relief.

The charity

Direct Relief works in the U.S. and internationally to equip doctors and nurses with life-saving medical resources. The organization operates in 80+ countries and all 50 U.S. states, from providing wildfire aid in California to distributing COVID-19 vaccines worldwide.

The event

We're planning two livestreams (one on December 18, one on December 19) with journalists, YouTubers, and other people in the tech community you might already know. Expect games, chats with viewers, and much more! We're using the Tiltify platform for donations, so the money goes directly to Direct Relief.

Techathon event schedule
Schedule is in U.S. Eastern Time (New York, UTC -5).
