Remember TheSpeedGamers? If you don’t, they’re a group of gamers that plays through games for charity. Usually about once a year they’ll do a MOTHER series marathon for charity, and the latest one begins today, in just a few hours!
If you’ve been around for a while, you might remember that last year they managed to raise over $10,000 😯 This year they have some more stuff planned, here’s word from them directly:
We,TheSpeedGamers, are based in the DFW Texas area and play video games to raise money for different causes. Today, Friday May 7th starting at 6pm cst, is our Mother/Earthbound marathon for Susan G. Komen. This event will last 48 straight hours.
We broadcast ourselves over the internet playing video game franchise’s to their completion while also providing video commentary. There is a chat room that accompanies the video game feed so that the viewers can interact with the players and other viewers. Everything can be viewed on TheSpeedGamers.com . Donations will be gathered using a chip in widget; debit, credit cards and paypal can be used to donate.
We have been a group for over two years now and have raised approximately $137,000 for various causes.
- Fangamer will be donating the proceeds of their new T-shirt shirt design to Susan G Komen. The specific design will be unveiled at the start of the marathon.
- Our goal will be $10,000. If we reach $20,000 a sponsor has said that they will ad an additional $1,000.
The marathon begins in just a few hours, so check it out!
