Blap Bash is an annual variety stream charity event hosted by several TF2 YouTubers, to raise money for several charities, including Child's Play and SpecialEffect. It is hosted over a weekend in the summer, with two twelve hour streams, featuring segments such as Mann vs. Machine games, jump courses, pub matches, MGE duels, showmatches, custom maps, SFM animations, and crate unboxings. Each event has also featured in-game medals, obtainable by donating certain amounts to the charity drive.
The name "Blapature" is a reference to Black Mesa from Half-Life and Aperture Science, from Portal. The symbol looks like a modified version of the Aperture Science logo with the Team Fortress logo.
As of 2019, the annual events have collectively raised over $100,000 USD.
This medal was awarded to players who donated at least $5 to the 2017 Blapature Co. charity drive.
