Zeldathon Raises $100,000 in Donations

July 17, 2014

The Bi-annual charity "Zeldathon" reached a personal record last night raising one hundred thousand dollars, all of which will directly benefit St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Zeldathon, as the name would imply, is a charity where a team of young philanthropists marathon Zelda games 24 hours a day, for about 6 straight days, and stream the whole thing through Twitch. Viewers are encouraged to donate while watching the stream. This new milestone shatters the previous record of $54, 965.05 and towers over the first Zeldathon's humble earnings of $301. If you would like to be apart of this wonderful charity, you can visit the site here.

The stream started July 10th with The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and with each donation goal, would start a new adventure. This culminates at the $100,000 goal with a live tournament of Super Smash Brothers. Tech Raptor would like to congratulate the Zeldathon crew on their generous hard work and to all those that donated.
