When I was a teenager I was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma. I spent a lot of time in the hospital on a bed. I didn’t have the energy to move around and be active so I needed something to keep my mind occupied. So my father’s co-workers all pitched in together and got me a Gamecube and Gameboy Advance. That was probably the best gift I had ever received and I got it at the exact moment I needed it the most. Instead of focusing on the treatment I turned my focus to the game. It helped me escape the current world I was in and allowed me to feel like a normal kid again. That gift did so much more for me then just distract me, it impacted my personality and character. If I had not had that then I’m sure once my treatment had finished I probably would have been a completely different person with a different look on life. Instead I’m more optimistic, generous and an overall happy person. It’s actually sorta funny, when I think about my treatment the only
things that sticks out to me is playing games and joking around with my friends.
That was way back in 2004 and June 11th will mark the 9 year anniversary. To celebrate that wonderful event I want to give back to the community by doing the one thing that helped me the most during my treatment and that is playing video games.
With the help of my friends, we’ll be playing games and doing all sorts of fun events to raise money for Child’s Play. These events.range from a raffle, competing challenges and in general making a fool of ourselves over the internet.
Join us at http://www.twitch.tv/streamdrinkandgame ,June 15th, to enjoy the celebration

On May 5th 2012, a group of friends based out of Longwood University tried to break two Guinness World Records, but they were soundly defeated. A year later, starting on May 6th, 2013, Matt, Will, Jeanne, and Dan return to take on new Guinness World Records for their chance for redemption.
It’s not all about the records. Just like last year, the LPCP crew will be raising money for Child’s Play Charity, a charity organization that raises money for books, toys, movies, and games for children’s hospitals around the world. We have hand-made crafts ready to go to the home of the lucky winners of our live-auctions!
During the attempts the crew will have call-ins such as Jamie Dillion of Child’s Play Charity, James Higginbotham of Pure Nintendo Magazine, and Brittney, “Chiki” Fischer of the D20 Girls.
These people will also be answering your questions. Just go to the call-in page on our website, and type in your question. When the person calls in, we will be asking him/her your question over the live-stream.
There are also challenge-achievements, challenges the players have to perform after a certain amount of money is raised. These can be performed by players and helpers alike.
Keep checking out our website to see updates, such as guest call-in times and auction times!
They have a little over 72 hours to collect as many records and as much money as possible. Can the LPCP crew do it, or will they walk way defeated once again?

Child’s Play seeks to improve the lives of children in hospitals around the world. Since 2003, the organization has been helping children in hospitals for various illnesses by purchasing games, consoles and more.
Each year brings new and interesting challenges to the Iron Man competition that takes place during our first day of play. Our contestants pit themselves against one another in events like shooting the most ducks in “Duck Hunt” while power walking on a treadmill. The event also features a team Iron Man competition to see which duo can claim the rights to the bronze head trophy.
Three live screens of game play will be viewable on www.forthekidsmarathon.com during the length of the marathon. “For the Kids” loves to involve its viewers, so jump in the website’s chat room to say hello. Odds are you’ll get a shout out from our M.C. We invite our watchers to submit their own challenges to our players. Think someone in our group can’t play the first level of “Dark Souls” without dying? Dare us. Previous viewer submitted challenges have resulted in our players getting pies in the face for failing in their attempts to beat the challenge. Interacting and donating to help Child’s Play in their mission to bring gaming entertainment to children in hospitals can also result in some goodies. Random donors are selected to win assorted prizes.
Donating is easy. Simply click the link on our website which will reroute you straight to Child’s Play’s giving site. That’s right, no middle man, you are assured that every dollar you donate goes right to the charity.
All the fun can be viewed live on www.forthekidsmarathon.com starting at noon EST on April 6th. Updates will also be featured on our Facebook fan page, www.facebook.com/forthekidsvideogamemarathon, and on Twitter @FortheKidsM.

Child’s Play at Cogswell Arcade is a charity event that is being put on by a group of Entrepreneurship students at Cogswell Polytechnical College in Sunnyvale, Ca
The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funds for the local charity, Child’s Play. “Child’s Play seeks to improve the lives of children in hospitals around the world through the kindness and generosity of the video game industry and the power of play.”
Our event, Child’s Play at Cogswell Arcade, will be taking place on April 27th, during Cogscon, Cogswell Polytechnical College Comicbook convention, at the school’s Sunnyvale location 1175 Bordeaux Drive, Sunnyvale Ca.
CogsCon is an independent art convention hosted by Cogswell College Comic Creation Club (C4) and Cogswell’s Associate Student Body (ASB). The idea behind this convention is to celebrate Cogswell College and everything it teaches: Digital Art, 3D Animation, Digital Audio, Video-games, Comic Books, and everything else in the nerd’s paradise.
Child’s Play At Cogswell Arcade will be located inside Cogscon during the entire festival and will be a hub of gaming glory! Throughout the day there will be a plethora of activities for Cogscon attendees to enjoy.
In the arcade there will be three main gaming experiences: Dungeons & Dragons, Warhammer 40K Tournament, and a couple crazy games of CLUE, where participants are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character.
As well as the three main events there will also be a large amount of random gaming activity including decks of cards, other board games such as Sorry, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Monoploy, etc. and a group of Classic Video game consoles (Sega Master System, NES, Nintendo Gamecube, and more) for all to play throughout the day.
To partake in the three main game events there will be a required donation to Child’s Play of at least $5. All other games and activities will be free to play, but we will have tablets and computer stations open and available for ANYONE to make a donation.
Child’s Play at Cogswell Arcade will also be accepting physical donations to give directly to The Children’s Hospital in Oakland Ca.
For every km that me and my girlfriend hitchhike around Australia and New Zealand in 2013-2014 we will donate 5 US dollar cents to Child’s Play Charity.

Being a gamer/traveler/hitchhiker this is my own funny way of helping out :)

March 30th is International Tabletop Day, and this is our chance to make this day a monumental occasion! Come join us to eat some food, raise money for charity, and play your favorite tabletop games among friends new and old.
Everything is completely FREE, with free food and games provided all day long. In addition, there will be both a raffle and an auction with plenty of great items up for grabs!
Every single cent donated during the day goes straight to Child’s Play, an organization that provides games to kids who are hospital-ridden and could use some games to help them out. By coming together to enjoy games as a group, we will in turn provide those less fortunate the opportunity to do the same! How cool is that?
We’ll kick off at noon and play all the way to 7PM. At 7 we will draw the raffle winners, and it will be immediately followed by a charity auction for many of the games played during the course of the day – as well as some other goodies to boot!
Whether you want to play some of your old favorites or try something new, regardless of if you want something lighthearted or strategic, there will be plenty of options available. And if you just want to hang out with some cool people and mingle, that’s perfectly fine too!
Whether I already know you or not, feel free to come by at any time throughout the day, play some of the best tabletop games out there, and, if you can, donate a little bit to Child’s Play. Inviting your friends is not only allowed, but highly encouraged - invite as many people as you can!
And as if all that wasn’t enough, it’s my birthday so there will *definitely* be a cake!
Let me know if you have any questions, and stay tuned for any updates. See you there!

When I was a kid, I was in and out of the hospital most of my childhood because of Nephrotic Syndrome. A disease that caused full body swelling and protein to escape my body through my urine due to improper kidney filtration. Over the years, I got to know the people working at the children’s hospital. Last year, when I finally started to get into youtubing, I noticed a lot of youtubers doing livestreams for Child’s Play. I thought to myself, how could I give back. So I came up with the idea of a charity livestream for my local children’s hospital. Since they helped me out a whole lot when I was a kid, I can give back as an adult and that is why I feel the need to do this livestream.

Each year we get together to play board games for 60 hours straight. During the marathon, we accept donations to Child’s Play charity. Donating money gives the donator the ability to choose which games will be played and/or which players have to play them. The idea is that, by donating, you get to watch the games you want to see, and force the players of your choice to stay awake longer.

My name is Noah I was born and raised in a Children’s Hospital was raised from the age 0 to the age to 6… and still am a very good portion… I have had many difficulties in my life, I must get back and feet surgery. I was born dead though thankfully they got me back using shock pads in Middlesboro, Kentucky. That is when they airlifted me to Knoxville, Tennessee to the Children’s Hospital. I had been in a room for 2 full years. I know how most of the kids feel like today… Though the nurses are always very kind to all of us. Well what I am trying to get to, is I would love to start a stream up for a Marathon for Child’s Play. A few friends and I are on the plan for hopefully tomorrow we can get it all together. I am boxing up stuff as it is right now to take to his house as we are all meeting there. If it isn’t a problem to raise money for the kids to gain more enjoying items within the Hospital chain. Though I hope my age will not effect anything
of the matter. My age is Fifteen (15) I will provide a list of streamers and ages.
New Dates - January 20, 2013 - January 21, 2013. The last e-mail had to be changed around due to technical problems and lack of a heads up. I hope that that was no problem and I am still able to do the marathon for the Children at the hospitals.
