So, this group at my school, Gamer's Club, is hosting an event called the "Game-A-Thon" which raises money for the Child's Play organization! It's a 24-hour event in which we play games, yet raise money for this charity. Last year, they raised over a thousand dollars, and I know you can help us raise even more than that.
Gamer's Club is a group at my school that meets and does what you more than likely think they do, which is play games. Anything from tabletop games to electronic games, we'll play it. However, we do organize this event to help raise money Child's Play, so it's not all fun and games. Every penny earned from the donations goes to Child's Play and we don't get any of it, but it's worth it in the end.
Our Mission Statement
"The RECHS Gamers' Club is intended to bring the gaming community together. We intend to act as role models in our community to help set an example that gamers are not lazy, but active members of their community. With our 24 hour Gameathon, we hope to prove to our local community that gamers can make a major impact on society."
The Game-A-Thon is our 24-hour event where we stream all sorts of games. In Gamer's Club we play all sorts of games so whatever ones that you want to watch, we'll most likely be streaming it. Not only will we be streaming Speed Runs and card/board games, we'll even have little competitions we play among ourselves. You can root for anybody you want, and donate money while you're at it!
"Child's Play is seeking to improve the lives of children in hospitals around the world through kindness and generosity of the gaming industry and the power of play."
So please donate whatever you can! Any amount of money is greatly appreciated.
