We, the gamers of Long Island, offer our heartfelt thoughts and best wishes for the people of the Philippines affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

To help the people of the Philippines recover, we are going to be running a Gaming Charity Marathon, similar to our previous “Secret for Sandy” and “Tornado Relief Zone” marathons, to raise money for relief efforts. This time, we will feature the Legend of Zelda game series.

Details on the Games:

We have planned for the original “The Legend of Zelda”, followed by “The Adventure of Link”, “A Link to the Past”, and “Link’s Awakening DX”. More games may be put on the list if time (and player energy) permits.

How to Watch & Donate:

Starting at 10am Eastern time on Sunday, November 24, 2013, we will be streaming our play on Twitch at http://www.twitch.tv/whoaguygaming . We encourage you to watch, as that is the primary attraction for our fundraiser- funny people playing great games for a good cause. During the broadcast, we encourage you to make a donation and then challenge us to do something in or out of the game!

Distribution of Donations:

100% of all donations will be forwarded to the International Red Cross and will go directly to aid victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

This Saturday, we will host our first charity marathon. This marathon will raise funds for the victims of the tornado in Oklahoma. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Date: Saturday, June 1, 2013 starting at 11:00 AM EDT

Games: We will start with the Genesis Sonic games: Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3+Knuckles, and possibly Sonic 3D Blast. Then the Dreamcast-era games Sonic Adventure 1 and 2. More games, such as Sonic Generations, may be put on the list if time (and player energy) permits.
