Three Dedicated Gamers to play World of Warcraft marathon to raise money for Child's Play charity

A team of three gamers will spend seven to ten days playing World of Warcraft in an attempt to collect donations for the charity Child's Play. All donations solicited will go straight to the charity and will never touch the team's hands.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Jul. 29, 2009 - Beginning at 8 AM on August 1, 2009, a team of three dedicated gamers known as the WoWathon team will begin to play a marathon of the popular online role playing game World of Warcraft. The marathon will be broadcast online using the online streaming service Ustream.com and donations will be collected through Paypal.

The WoWathon team, consisting of three college students from Southern California, believes it is the first group to attempt a fundraiser gaming marathon using World of Warcraft. The team will stream their progress live online for anyone to see throughout the marathon via their own homepage (www.wowathon.com) and their Ustream page(www.ustream.tv/channel/world-of-warcraft-marathon).

The charity to receive these donations, Child's Play, is run by popular webcomic creators Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik. As stated on the charity's website, it is "a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in (their) network of over 60 hospitals worldwide."

The details of the marathon are as follows:

Two characters will be created on the realm Bronzebeard

Between the levels of 1 and 40, the team will try to raise $250 USD

If the team hits this goal, it will continue playing until level 60 while trying to raise $500 USD

If the team hits this goal, it will continue playing until level 70 while trying to raise $1000 USD

If the team hits this goal, it will continue playing until level 80 while trying to raise $2000 USD

These goals are simply starting estimates of how much the team will be making. The team will change the values should there be a substantial difference in the amount received versus the previously set goal.

The WoWathon team can be contacted at WoWathon@gmail.com
