I’m thrilled to report: Charitable Rust 2022, which took place this weekend, was a huge success!
This post is to acknowledge the hard work of our team and thank everyone involved for their participation and generosity. Before we do, allow me to share the estimated amount raised…
Estimated amount raised: $120,000!
Four skin sales: Still going!
We have 4 exclusive skins on the item store this year, including the first of its kind, a Sheet Metal Double Door with transparent wi
Thank you to the talented skin creators of the item store and Twitch drop skins Milho Frito ッ, Sfonsper, Mishka☢, Slanosta, Retr0, XOLODNO, IDEΛL, badtRIP ☣, Diazz, and Dark Schneider!
An extra shoutout and thank you to ThatGermanGuy who, for a couple years running now, has organized the skin contest for this event.
It’s not done yet though, the skins are still on the item store till Thursday! If you haven’t already, go pick them up and let’s keep increasing the total amount raised!
Over $27k in stream donations
We started with a modest $10,000 goal on our Tiltify campaign for the stream event on Saturday. After quickly beating that, we upped the goal a couple times, ending day 1 with over $22,000 raised!
Then, on Sunday, Rust Reborn put on their Bedwars event and helped raised another several thousand, bringing the campaign total to over $27,000!
A huge thank you to everyone who donated, tuned in, and spread the word about this campaign to help us not only meet, but exceed our stream goals.
Thank you to World Central Kitchen!
A huge thank you to World Central Kitchen for their collaboration with planning the event this year and for all the amazing good they do in the world through bringing meals to those in need around the world.
Our Tiltify campaign is still open, so it’s not too late to raise more funds for this great cause!
Thank you Facepunch!
We owe the entire crew at Facepunch a huge debt of gratitude for their continued support in Charitable Rust. Every year they have partnered with us to help raise funds for this event and this year they went above and beyond. They not only helped raise awareness, they once again agreed to put skins on the item store - the proceeds of which go towards this great cause. On top of that, they ran a Twitch drop campaign which helped us have tens of thousands of viewers all day!
I can not thank the entire team at Facepunch enough for their ongoing support and tireless commitment toward improving and adding to the already incredible game that is Rust.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you to the entire team at Facepunch! Keep up the great work!
Thank you to everyone who donated during the stream, and a special thank you to our top donors of the day:
Rudeolph (fifth year in a row baby!)
To our stream partners
In the interest of encouraging a little friendly competition, we used a team leaderboard system which tracked and aggregated hashtags in each donation towards a team goal.
Thank you to all content creators who participated throughout the week, and a special thank you to our teams: ChrissytinaFx, Raynbirds, TheRealTeam, MissD_ThatsMe, MUY SUS, BeccaSomething, Rust In Peace, Back2Beachbois, welyn, Diggie, DaniRaye, Yexom and everyone else who participated!
Another big thank you to all the special guests who joined us on the stream BeccaSomething, Tyrnhoz, Raynbirds, DaddyKeevo, ChrissytinaFx, SnuffyFluffy, teawithmilkandsugar, Wugti, Moondog_TV, and Templetaps.
On behalf of our VIP
A special thank you goes out to every Rustafied VIP customer. It’s the VIP program which keeps Rustafied operating - without it we would not have the presence and servers which we do. Each year we save a portion of our proceeds for charity. On behalf of you all, Rustafied donated over $2,600 during this event!
To the production team
This years’ event took literally thousands of hours to set up the server, prizes, invites, and everything else which went into the production. From the bottom of my heart, thank you to the entire team which helped out. There are way too many of you to name, but you know who you are, and I love you all!
Thank you to everyone else
These acknowledgement posts are always a challenge, especially with such a large event. So many people helped us reach (and beat) our goal, it is simply impossible to adequately acknowledge everyone. To all of you who donated, watched the stream, spread the word about the event, or participated in any way - I thank you.
If I missed a special mention to someone in particular, I apologize, and please know that I am grateful for your contribution.
This year, like previous years, we had some incredible entries to the art contest. A huge thank you to all who contributed, it was hard to pick this year. Here are the finalists (with the winner, Shhlie, first).
