Frequently Asked Questions
What is Charitable Rust?
Charitable Rust is an annual charity event hosted by Rustafied and the Rust community. The Rustafied Community Team works all year long to build out special games just for Charitable Rust. The goal is to raise funds for a charity through having fun while streaming!
How does a charity get chosen for Charitable Rust?
There are multiple factors that go into choosing a charity each year. We refrain from any political/religious charities. We also do a transparency check and financial review of the chosen charity.
Who are you supporting this year?
The chosen charity this year is Pencils of Promise.
So, when is the event again?
This year we're doing it a bit different! Instead of a 12 hour stream by Rustafied with Special Guests, it will be a week long event where the Rustafied team will do a kick-off & closing event. There will be a posted schedule of the streamers who will be participating in Charitable Rust. The event will kick off on Thu Nov 14 2019, beginning at TBA EST and close on Thu Nov 21st at TBA EST.
What types of events/games will be on the Charitable Rust server?
We like to keep this as a surprise. There will be some events that will be showcased in an upcoming trailer video. To see all the different types of events/games we’ll have, you will need to join the Charitable Rust server during the event or stay tuned to the Charitable Rust Twitch stream schedule.
How do I get on this server?
During the week of Charitable Rust, connect to the Charitable Rust server on the official list. Note that once the event is over, the Charitable Rust servers will no longer be available.
Does my Rustafied VIP allow me access on this server?
No it doesn’t. There will be special event servers solely for Charitable Rust.
What kind of prize(s) can I donate?
Thanks for thinking of us! We are not taking any prize donations this year.
Aren't you just going to take all the money for yourselves?
No. Every cent will go to the charity and all funds go through Tiltify.
