Starting this weekend, EA will be hosting their own E3 event called EA Play. To celebrate the occasion, they’re giving $1 million to charity through their new Play to Give program. The program will make donations to the following charities:
National Center for Women & Information Technology
The goal of the contributions from EA is to give back to the community, and support a more inclusive environment in gaming, along with helping future creators. To commemorate the event, EA is offering up some in-game challenges to allow you to show your support.
Games with challenges include FIFA 16 and Madden 16, with Battlefield 4, Battlefield Hardline, Star Wars Battlefront, and Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes representing the core audience. Each challenge will offer special rewards for their respective games. You can find a list of the games and their rewards below, via the blog post from EA. More details on the challenges will be revealed soon. You can get more information on Play to Give from EA’s website.

As a community,Battlefield 4 players are challenged with getting a 45 million total re-supply score and Battlefield Hardline players are challenged with getting a 5 million re-supply score from June 12-17. By achieving either of those goals, contributing players will get rewarded with an extra Gold Battlepack via Battlelog.
