Brazilian CS legend and MIBR captain Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo is doing a series of special livestream sessions to help out South African team Bravado Gaming.
The special series called "Confia no Duo" (Trust the Duo) will feature FalleN himself along with various personalities including fellow pro players and local celebrities on his stream channel.
Proceeds of the campaign will go for the benefit of Bravado’s crowdfunding campaign launched last month.
Called Project Destiny, the crowdfunding is an initiative by the South African org to allow their CS:GO team to continue competing in the USA. The squad saw decent success since their move to North America February last year. They had risen from rank 150 since April last year all the way to rank 25 at HLTV.org’s global power rankings after successful contests at ESEA and MDL. They also gathered mainstream attention after reaching the grand finals of the DreamHack Open Winter and winning the DreamHack Invitational Mumbai.
They also qualified for the IEM Katowice Americas Minor, which will be held in Poland in just under two weeks. Their bid for a spot at the Majors might be in shambles if they won’t be able to gather enough funds to continue their bootcamp in the USA and hence move back to South Africa where issues on connectivity with top teams await them.
Project Destiny looks to secure their stay by attaining a goal of $30,000 US Dollars. According to their Indiegogo page, the project is in trouble of discontinuing due to the lack of additional funding. So far, they are about to reach the 10K mark after pledges from over 170 backers were made.
Bravado is thankful for the continuing efforts of the community. FalleN’s first stream alone held earlier today which featured Brazilian celebrity MC Davi have earned around $5,000 US Dollars which inches them further towards their goal.
