Ben's Charity Tour was a VGC tournament organized by Ben Li. The event aimed to raise money for Stop AAPI Hate, an organization that was formed in response to racially motivated violence against Asian people due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. 50% of the entry fees raised from the tournament ($101.25 USD[1]) was donated to Stop AAPI Hate, in addition to a raffle that encouraged people to donate directly to the organization.[2]

The tournament was played using VGC 2021 Series 9 rules on Pokémon Sword & Shield.
