Hi there. Thank you for your interest in our ridiculous fund-raising scheme for Macmillan Game Heroes.
You’re here to find out what’s going on and how you can help, right?
EH?! WHAT’S HAPPENING? WHO ARE YOU!?
It all started with a simple idea. A 24 hour marathon streaming session for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Then it became 26 hours. If a marathon is 26 miles, a marathon stream should be 26 hours, right?
Then it got silly.
Now, we’re trying to stream for as much of May as we possibly can, across multiple channels, with gaming, hangouts and lord knows what else. It’s an evolving perma-stream which will hopefully bring people a little joy and in return, they’ll help us raise a little cash.
HUH. OK, WHEN’S THIS ALL HAPPENING, THEN?
There’s so much going on, we had to put it in a seperate post!
You can check the full, constantly evolving schedule right here.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?!
Really? I mean, it’s for charity, dude. Jeez. Well, let’s see what we can tempt you with, shall we? How about a giveaway? In fact, how about a buttload of giveaways?
The wonderful team at Insert Coin clothing have provided us with a 20% discount code for everyone who views the stream, as well as three vouchers which will be given away during the course of our fundraising efforts. Check out their range online, it’s absolutely gorgeous stuff. I need all those pins…
We’ve got a £20 online gift voucher for Bleading Marvellous, thanks to the awesome Dan! Folks, check out their online store, they’ve got some amazing horror and geek goodies. Be sure to follow them on Facebook, too!
The super talented Ben Cameron has donated a three month subscription to Pin Badge Club. I just signed up to this one myself and it’s absolutely brilliant. Drop Ben a follow on Twitter and thank him for us, he’s an absolute gem!
Thanks to our lovely pals at Bethesda UK, we’ll have DOOM codes to giveaway! Drop them a follow on Twitter and say thank you!
You like awesome t-shirts? Yeah you do! The good people at Qwertee have given us three codes to giveaway, each of which can be redeemed for a t-shirt of the winner’s choice!
Ross from Gamer Tagged (and Creative Ramble, your soon to be favourite podcast) is not only streaming for us tomorrow, he’s got a couple of PSN gift cards to give away. What’s more, he’s given us a couple too, along with a Steam code for Doom PC. Ross, you are the stuff of legend sir. Follow him on Twitter and tell him he’s gorgeous, will you?
Many thanks to our lovely friends at Funimation UK who have given us a free month code for Funimation Now to give to one lucky winner! They’re awesome, check them out on Facebook and Twitter and tell them you love them.
More to come, keep checking in.
AND YOU’RE DOING ALL THIS FOR CHARITY?
Absolutely. There are links below to the justgiving pages, plus every sub to AMidGameCrisis on Twitch throughout may will be donated to the cause.
WHAT’S THIS I HEAR ABOUT YOU COLLECTING ON PAYPAL, THEN?
Ah, that. That’s a separate thing but you’ll probably hear it mentioned from time to time, so i’ll explain.
We’re doing all of this because it’s a good cause and we’ve all had people in our lives who have been affected by cancer, but what really spurred us on was the recent diagnosis of a very dear friend. In a bid to cheer him up and support him, we started a Paypal fund to throw some pressies his way and cover any costs he might have, should need arise. That’s something we did between friends and family and it’s not something we’re expecting any of you to throw into.
That being said, there will be people tuning in who know who we’re talking about and would like to support him, or who are just very generous and kind-hearted and so we’ll be popping the link to the Paypal below. Every penny we collect in there will be used to support our friend and his family during a difficult time and anything left will be donated to Macmillan, so that’s all good and lovely. Got it?
RIGHT, I’M CONVINCED. SHOW ME THE LINKS AND STUFF.
Yes! Glad you’re aboard. OK, here’s where to go to watch the streams:

MID-GAME CRISIS – AMidGameCrisis
MAKKA – RealCastCuraga
Here’s where to go to give money:

And here’s where to go to throw a few quid at our pal:
OUR PAL’S PAYPAL – PablosAngels
We’d like to thank a few people, if we may.
Thank you to Sold Out Entertainment for giving us the two review copies of Zombie Army 4 for our spooky streaming session, it’s very much appreciated and bound to bring in those essential viewers!
Thanks to The Attitude Era Podcast for a lovely shoutout, we’re big fans and it was great of you to share our efforts with your following.
In fact, thank you to EVERYONE who’s shared, retweeted, liked and generally just spread the word. Whether you have 10 followers or 10,000, it’s the same to us. Sharing equals potential new eyes for the stream, which equals potential donations. So, thank you so very much.
NOW YOU’RE DONE?
Almost! We still need some help, folks. If you would like to join in by streaming a couple hours so we can take a break or perhaps you’d like to host us on your channels to get out to a wider audience, maybe you’ve even got something you’d like to chuck into the giveaway pile? Please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, any time, day or night. I won’t be asleep, obviously…
Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter and check us out on Facebook for updates.
OK JEEZ BYE.
Thanks. Love you.
