"Panoorin nyo kami nila Junemar, Japeth at Kiefer maglaro sa April 6 para makatulong sa ating mga #frontliners. Target namin to raise P1M para sa PGH Medical Foundation. Naka halos P400k na tayo. Salamat sa lahat ng sumali, nag donate at sumusuporta. Pero higit sa lahat, salamat sa ating mga bayani sa inyong #labanparasabayan," wrote Pingris.

"Basketball pros, Dota 2 pros, at pati narin ang mga daddy ng Lupon ng Womboxcombo ay sumali na para tumulong sa pag donate para maabot ang ating 1 MILLION PESO GOAL na ipapamahagi sa ating mga frontliners," MineskiTV's official Facebook page wrote.

"Ang Mineski Esports Lockdown Games ay ang aming charity tournament at livestream para makatulong tayong mga gamers ng kahit konti habang naka-quarantine tayong lahat."
