‘You must be the change you wish to see in the world.’ – Mahatma Gandhi
We here at EACL are a team of innovative, persistent and ambitious social entrepreneurs, who are passionate about making a difference. We truly want to be that change we wish to see in the world. One might ask how a gaming company like us plan on changing the world? And our answer would be…By pushing boundaries, embracing innovation and thinking right outside the proverbial “box”.
We believe that every contribution to change, no matter how big or small, can make all the difference. But, we also believe in going big or going home. We’ve worked long and hard to invent a business model that pushes the envelope in the gaming industry and gives a lot of people the opportunity to make a little contribution, creating one massive, collective contribution. This, we hope, will truly make the difference.
At the same time, we’re acutely aware that there are incredible non-profit organizations out there working extremely hard all year long to fundraise so that their community efforts can thrive. Often these fundraising methods are expensive and time consuming with very little reward. At EACL, we wanted to find a way to help these organizations generate significant funds without this excessive effort. Pooling our creative resources and business acumen, we’ve built an infrastructure that creates a source of funding for non-profit organizations with very little effort.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every EACL dealer is assigned to a non-profit as a liaison to help facilitate the best results of a video gaming tournament for that non-profit. These non-profits are given a set number of seats to sell per category, for which they’ll receive 50% of the sale price. We’ll help with the marketing and sales tactics – all the non-profits have to worry about is selling their seats. They’ll stand to make up to $40,000 a year without the need to hold a barbecue, run a door knocking campaign or produce and sell merchandise. It’s that simple.
Sound too good to be true? We promise that it’s not. Welcome to social entrepreneurship.
