What Is #MakeItBlue?

#MakeItBlue is a global campaign to show our appreciation for all those on the frontlines while doing our part to stay home. Individuals are encouraged to turn their social media feeds blue by posting fun and engaging videos, photos, selfies, Tik Tok challenges, and more — anything positive is acceptable, as long as you #MakeItBlue!

These efforts began with #LightItBlue, a tremendously successful ‘thank you’ campaign for essential and frontline workers in which stadiums, arenas, government buildings, arts institutions, and other landmarks lit up blue in hundreds of cities and other communities around the world.

Now, and for as long as the frontline workers have to keep going to work to fight COVID-19, we’re going to keep the gratitude flowing for them with #MakeItBlue.

How Can I Get Involved?

It’s now our turn in the gaming community to show our support and Make It Blue. This will take many forms, and your creativity is encouraged! We all have something special we offer to the gaming community. Whether it be a live stream, fan art, music, memes, singing, cosplay, or even competitive esports, you have something to offer. And we’re asking you to make that special something blue! Use #MakeItBlue as you show off the special twist on your talents!
