Ok we are planning on doing a game-a-thon that anyone can join. People can play board games, PC games and even console game platforms. The play time will run from May 19th till May 26th. The idea is to get sponsors who will donate money per hour that you play games. They can pick from one of four different charities, or you can pick what charity you want to play for.


You can set a goal for how many hours you want to play for. I would think 12 hours is a nice goal for anyone. After the event is over or after you  reach the goal you set for yourself you collect the money from the person and either send it to Games for Charities or send it to the charities directly. If you do send it direct to the charities please let us know at Games for Charities how much you raised so we can add it to total amount raised.


When asking for someone to sponsor you, telling them how many hours you plan to play may help them decide how much to pledge. They may even want to offer a lump sum.


The charities to pick from are:
World Land Trust - Protecting rain forest all over the world
Sea Shephard Conservation Society - Helping to save sea life all over the world
Soi Dog Foundation - Helping dogs and cats all over the world
American Red Cross - They help disaster victims

If you wish to send the money to us here at Games for Charities please let me know I will give you our paypal info. If you are going to send it direct to the charities and want the mailing info or website info please let us know.


Here is a file you can download and print out to keep track of sponsors you get.

I asked someone else if they wanted to they did not respond back yet lol. I will ask them again tomorrow. If they do not respond I will do it in a day or two.

I got side tracked today and did not get much charity stuff done lol. It was a nice change (had fun so was worth it).

Natasha I implore you to get sponsors and play games. It will be a blast and the dogs need it bad right now if you have been following what is going on in Thailand. So Soi Dog would be a great choice.
