Unboxing a Giant Mr. Saturn!
January 8th, 2013 | EarthBound
Paolo sent me this recently:
Speed Demos Archive is holding a speedrun marathon with members of Speed Runs Live on Twitch.tv from Jan 6th to Saturday Jan 12th to raise money for Cancer prevention, and on Wednesday Jan 9th at 09:10:00 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time) they will be performing an EarthBound speedrun of the full game. The estimated time for the run is 6:15 by Mickey_Mage and skateman222.

the main host website is here
It’s for a good cause and so far on their second day they have raised over $61,000! They have goals, challenges and prizes for each game, and for EarthBound people can donate to name characters and win fan made prizes raffled off to people who donate. It’s a fun time and I was wondering if you could notify people on EB Central by posting something about the event? They are playing many of the best games of all time nonstop as fast as possible with dozens of runners, and they need all the support they can get.
Hopefully you can read this by the time the stream is on.
