Hey guys, it’s great to help out people, especially sick kids, so I wanted to help promote a Game-a-thon held by Insomniac gamers this weekend. All the proceeds go to Child’s Play Charity which is an awesome cause! Mario 64 and Super Mario bros 2 are amongst the games that will be played through ๐Ÿ˜€ Here is a copy of their press release anyway, the rest is up to you! It’s quite fun to watch people play video games anyway…

On Saturday, July 20, 2013 at 10:30 A.M. Eastern Standard Time (GMT -5) Insomniac Gamers will hold their second-ever gaming marathon to benefit Child’s Play Charity. Gamers from around the world will be playing through games in record times for segments lasting between one and three hours.

The Charity Marathon will cover well-known series such as Zelda, Pokemon, Super Mario Bros., Metal Gear Solid, and Dark Souls. The streamers will play through the various games, using their skill and practice to complete the games more quickly than a usual play-through, all while entertaining and talking to a live chat room. Their first charity held in October 2012 raised approximately $1800 for Child’s Play Charity.

The marathon is a 20-hour marathon that will be broadcast live online at http://www.insomniacgamers.net via Twitch. Viewers are encouraged to participate in the live chat on the site to interact with the gamer and with other gaming fans.

For this marathon, Insomniac Gamers will be raising money for Child’s Play Charity [http://www.childsplaycharity.org]. Child’s Play takes monetary donations to buy games and toys for children who are staying in the hospital long-term. There will be an embedded widget on Insomniac Gamers website that directly links all donations to the charity. Paypal and most major forms of electronic payment are accepted.

Insomniac Gamers is a website started in February 2012 as a group of gamers who enjoy streaming for fun. The site streams games 24/7 and streams all game genres played by gamers from around the world. It features a community consisting of a chat, forums, as well as having community pages on Facebook, Twitter, and Steam.

Please join us for a good cause on Saturday, July 20, 2013 at 10:30 A.M. EST (GMT -5) at http://www.insomniacgamers.net
