Every year, our friends over at Geekade gather together for what they call the Pain-in-the-Ass-a-Thon (PITAthon for short), a charity event where they stream difficult video games for 24 hours straight to raise money for the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. (Get it? Colorectal cancer, pain in the ass?) This year is poised to be their biggest year yet, with a crazy lineup of games, a set of bonus rounds with several Twitch streamers, and an art auction to help bring even more money in for this awesome charity. Plus, this year Stone Age Gamer will be matching donations up to $1200. That means that if Geekade manages to bring in $1200, we’ll give them an additional $1200. Let’s take a look at how it’s all going to work.
PITAthon Art Auction - August 3-10
Before the PITAthon kicks off proper this weekend, Geekade is hosting an art auction featuring pieces donated from some very generous artists. 100% of the proceeds go right into the PITAthon’s donation pile, and the art ranges from drawings, to cross stitches, to photo prints, purses, and more. Here are a few highlights, and you can follow the link below to view (and bid!) on them all.
