Hello to all you button-mashing, energy drink-slurping, neck-adjusting, sound-blazing, jump-scaring, fund-raising, doing-something-fun-for-a-good-cause enthusiasts! If you haven't been following my social media over the past few days, as I write this I'm currently taking part in the Entertainment Is Dead 24-hour gaming marathon. As you can see from the picture below, several gamers set up shop to stream live on their own feeds and the main podcast feed to help raise funds from channel viewers for the Utah Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America. If you've ever looked up lupus on the web, you know that it is a shitty disease in which there is no cure, so research into the problem is a necessity. Because of my participation in this event, this post is going to be short and sweet, with a list of events you should check out below. But the main focus is to encourage you to donate what you can, as local gamers aim to help out a local chapter helping out a bigger problem. Enjoy the events below, we'll check back with you in two weeks. As always, we'll see what happens.
