If we reach $200, someone's going to put a spoonful of cinnamon in their mouth and immediately regret it. Don't miss out!

FAQ

Q: Come on, you guys are just going to take the money I donate for your own evil schemes, right?

A: Don’t worry. Even if we were sick and evil enough to want to steal donations, we can’t. If you check the confirmation message after you donate, as well as your confirmation email, you will see that the money is going STRAIGHT to Child’s Play’s paypal. The super fancy donation button will record who donated though, so we know who to get the prizes to.

Q: Have you done this before?

A: Yes. We do the annual Halo: Endurance Evolved marathon of which there have been four, and in April of 2011 and 2012 we did Retrothon, where we played a bunch of retro games for charity. We also did the Fallout 3 Marathon in Feburary 2012, which was our most successful marathon. We followed this up with the Ultimate Gaming Challenge, and the Oculus Riftathon. So far, we’ve raised almost $10,000 for Child’s Play Charity.

What is Omnithon? | we're very interesting

Omnithon is a group that does gaming marathons to raise money for charity. A gaming marathon is where we play through a game or series of games, and stream it online while collecting donations for a cause we support, which in our case is Child's Play Charity, which brings entertainment and hope to those in children's hospitals. We've raised over $9000 dollars with our prior marathons, and hope to raise even more going forward.
