Soo, here it is (INHALE)
We all found out a few weeks ago that one of our own, and one of my favoritest people ever - @LoZelda
is dealing with Cancer. I've had close relatives and friends go through similar experiences in battling Cancer, and the one thing that seems to weigh on them the most is the Financial burden of having to pay for the operations and treatments. What kind of world do we live in where someone who is sick and trying their best to get better, gets penalized with a crippling amount of bills? They are fighting a sickness AND have to live uncomfortably in order to afford fighting it. This is wrong, and I honestly disagree with it.
THAT is where I think we can help and HERE IT IS!
I'm pulling a 24 hr long gaming marathon - live on stream - in hopes to raise money for @LoZelda
so that she won't have to worry about financial troubles on top of her health. Any and all donations will be sent straight to her.
I've seen this community band together to do some amazing things for charities and such, so why not try to do this for one of our own?
HERE ARE THE DETAILS:
Streaming and gaming will begin at 7:00 PM EST on Saturday the 2nd (This coming saturday) and will go on for 24 hours....or longer depending on how things go. It will be a nice send off for her operation later that week!
The Stream will take place at www.twitch.tv/bluefire132 All of the information will be on the description below the video itself along with donation links and other stuffs!
Games to be played will be - Some Zelda games (I've never played zelda before, but I figure this is the best time to do so) And we will have Audience requests between the headlining games, so we can get tons of people involved!
There will be a donation link, and with every donation you may choose to write a message of inspiration to either be read on-stream or be kept private.
There will be Awesome Giveaways! Wildstar trial keys, RT Posters, and a super secret steam game!
WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
A- Of course the best way to help will be to donate.
B - For those that do not have the means to donate, hanging out for the stream will be more than enough to show support for the cause!
C - If you cannot donate and cannot make the stream, the best way to help is to Help spread the word, and to send your best wishes to @LoZelda
I'd love for this thing to be HUGE - I've gotten some announcements planned by HUGE Streamers like "MANVSGAME" and a few others, and I'd love to have as many people there to show their support.
My absolute stretch goal is to raise $5 Thousand. It won't be much in the grand scheme of things, but it'll certainly help make a dent with payments and such. BUT I'll be happy raising any amount!
So thanks everyone for giving me some time - and I really hope we can pull together to help out an amazing person!! See you all on Saturday!
24 HR Gaming Marathon for @LoZelda

When - Saturday August 2nd at 7PM EST (6PM RT Time)
Where - www.twitch.tv/bluefire132
