Tuesday Newsday – Gaming for Charity!

A few weeks ago, I received a message on Etsy asking me if I would be willing to donate a few items for an event.

The items I provide will be given out as raffle prizes that you can earn by making a donation. The donations will be going to OSCAR – One Step Closer Animal Rescue (you can find more info here). For every $5 you donate, you earn a raffle ticket to win a variety of prizes.

The fun part? This isn’t your typical event.

It’s a video game marathon.

Say what?!

Yes, that’s right. A 24-hour gaming marathon featuring a live stream of participants playing various games. Sounds fun, right?

It’s called the “For the Pets Gaming Marathon” and it will be held on April 25th starting at 7am ET.

They will be playing several different games including “Tokyo Jungle” and “Ape Escape.”

They have held several of these events in the past and in November of 2012, they held a Mass Effect marathon where they received almost $27,000 in donations that went directly to the Child’s Play charity.

The goal for this month’s marathon is $5,000.

I will be donating these items:

Donation 2

Maskutchi, a mini bob-omb, and Bandage Girl.

So, if you like watching other people play video games (I know I do) and also love helping out animals in need (I like that too!), then join them on Saturday the 25th for this fun event!

Every $5 donation earns you a raffle ticket and a chance to win one of my snazzy plushies (among other things)!

Hope to “see” you there!

As I find out more information, I’ll try to update this post. 🙂
