What is love tropics?

Love Tropics is a weekend long charity livestream marathon featuring some of your favorite Mojangstas, Twitch/Mixer streamers, YouTube creators and Minecraft modders. Throughout the weekend, these and other Minecraft personalities will be hosting the event, and you, the donors, will be able to play on a server with them all! There will be donation rewards, giveaways, competitions, and more! Expect lots of fun, laughs, and most important of all, love.

why love tropics?

In 2011, a summer trip to Puerto Rico inspired the creation of Tropicraft, a beautiful Minecraft mod that adds an idyllic, lush tropical paradise for players to explore. Over the past seven years, Tropicraft has continued to draw upon the natural beauty of Puerto Rico and other tropical locales around the world for inspiration. The Puerto Rico that we all picture in our heads is, much like Tropicraft, filled with pina coladas, palm trees, and crystal clear cyan waters. In September 2017, Hurricane Maria, a category 5 hurricane, tore through Puerto Rico, leaving the entire island without electricity or running water. Relief efforts were slow and disorganized, leaving most of the island in a state of confusion and disarray. While much help has arrived since the storm, thousands are still without proper roofs on their homes, or without a home at all. Help us help Puerto Rico rebuild during this year's Love Tropics event!

Who are we supporting?

This year, we have chosen to support Team Rubicon's efforts to help rebuild Puerto Rico after last year's storms. During Cory and Matt's trip to Puerto Rico, they discovered the immense number of houses that had blue tarps instead of roofs. Team Rubicon is veteran-led disaster response organization who has been on the ground in Puerto Rico since last year's hurricanes helping local communities rebuild. To date, they have completed 420 roofs, have 110 in the queue and 40 in progress at this very moment! We are proud to support Team Rubicon for Love Tropics 2018.

While we have elected to support Team Rubicon this year, we are considering our options for next year, and are considering using donated funds to potentially help build hurricane preparedness kits, support education, or...well, lots of things! We are looking for your feedback as to the causes you feel would be best for us to support, so if you have any ideas, drop us a line on Twitter @WeLoveTropics! :)
