Yesterday was a long day, but we managed to make it through a 16-hour Sonic The Hedgehog marathon. While we didn’t get through all the games we had hoped to, we did have lots of fun. Huge thanks to everyone who donated. Although we had hoped to raise more, we’re thankful for what we got.
Thanks to The Fan’s POV for making this short recap video of the event:
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.
How to Watch & Donate: 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: 25% of all money raised will be sent to the Central Oklahoma Red Cross to provide medical aid, 25% to the Oklahoma Humane Society, which has been working to give medical care to pets lost or injured in the disaster, and 50% to a to-be-determined fund that will directly help those who lost their homes or were displaced because of damage.
