Starting on Friday December 13th at 6pm CST we will be playing the Zelda franchise for 72 hours continuously while raising money for Mercy Corps (http://www.mercycorps.org/). We have a goal of $15,000 and if we reach that goal by Monday December 16th we will extend the marathon by another 24 hours. The Mercy Corps is currently helping those affected by the typhoon in the Philippines by providing emergency relief. You can watch all of the game play and commentary right here on TheSpeedGamers.com
As well as our donation goal we also have a difficult game play goal. We want to complete every Zelda game in under 72 hours. This is going to be hard but we have been practicing hard to make this happen. Soon we will post a game schedule so you can see when your favorite games will be played.
So far we have had many great prizes donated to us and Mayday22 has informed me of many more that are soon to arrive. We will update our new prize page as the prizes come in so keep checking back to TheSpeedGamers.com/prizes
