There are worse things to do than to watch a live stream Legend of Zelda charity marathon.
Basically, “these teenage guys stream video of their gameplay live, non-stop, for 2-3 days at a time. They narrate, play all night and interact with their viewers. Every marathon they play they have a charity organization which they sponsor and ask their viewers to donate so that they can reach their goal (usually $1000-$2000).”
Currently, they are in the midst of Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past. They’ve reached their initial goal of $2,000 (right about now they are pushing $3,500) but if you watch (and you should), donate to their charity, Free the Children. If they make it to $8,500 that’s enough for the charity to build a school in an African village.
Pretty remarkable stuff, and not for nothing, but if you don’t want to give for altruistic purposes, then donate today so you can write it off your taxes in April.
