The Nexus Hub, in collaboration with select partners, has announced the CREATORS UNITED initiative. This event brings together streamers, vloggers, YouTubers, writers and influencers, donating their time and skills all in aid of raising funds for charity.

The selected charity for the event is the Abraham Kriel Bambanani Children's Non-Profit, with the theme being superheroes. Content creators taking part in the event will be using their own platforms, be it on YouTube, Facebook, Twitch or others, to raise funds and garner donations from their respective audiences.

There is also a 24-hour streamer challenge whereby select local content creators try stream for the full twenty-four hour event as a donation challenge.
