(April 26-27) Marathon Stream to Help Boston Marathon Victims Tournaments too!(Framingham, MA)


#1

With the horrible events that took place the past few weeks in Boston people are in a great need for help. As the New England Video Game Community we have a unique ability to reach people across the world through live streams and social media.

Together I think we can help a lot of people who are in need.

2 Ways To Help:

  1. In person

We are hosting a 26 Hour 20 minute live stream at Game Underground starting Friday 4/26/13 at 8pm and ending 4/27/13 at 10:20 pm.

There will be a $10 entrance fee to attend this event and 100% of the money will donated directly to The One Fund. www.OneFundBoston.org

You may also donate as much money as you would like in person.

Most of the Arcade Games will be set to Free Play including IIDX, ITG, Drum Mania, and more!

We will also allow people to “Buy” time in 15 minute intervals on the stream overnight to play the game they want on stream in order to raise more money.

There will be tournaments and free play on the stream as well as other games set up to play for free at GU as well. (more details tba)

  1. Online

Log into our live stream at www.twitch.tv/gameunderground

We will be encouraging people on our live stream to donate to The One Fund as well.

This is where we can make a HUGE difference. This stream can be viewed anywhere and the more we spread the word the bigger it can get! Let’s get this HYPE! Get celebrities to Tweet about it, get it on video game news sites etc! There is NO LIMIT to how big this can get! Think about it… if 1,000 people only donate $1 that really adds up!

The money be donated directly to The One Fund. We will not be collecting money online. We are encouraging people to directly donate to the official site. There will be more details on this very soon.
