A video game marathon to raise funds for Big Cat Rescue in Tampa.
Hello! My name is Genesis and I am known for my artwork, but also slowly becoming known for my gaming streams. I think it has something to do with the color of my language, but who is to say.
Not too long ago I lost my cat, Feep, and I asked the people who had grown to love her to honor her memory by donating to cover her bills with the promise that the extra would go to Big Cat Rescue. Her bills were paid and the rest went into buying a memorial brick in her memory that marks the walkway into the BCR sanctuary.
Several people I know in the past have spoken about how they game for charity, there's a day set aside in October for it. I'm scheduling my day a little earlier so as not to step on the official event's toes, but I wanted to give more to this organization that has done so much for big cats.
I had the pleasure of visiting the BCR sanctuary a few months ago and learned a lot. Did you know that those beautiful white tigers you see have all sorts of health problems because they were created via inbreeding? Did you know that Ligers suffer from gigantism and never stop growing, and that the stress on their organs causes them great pain and eventually kills them? I learned a lot about what big cats are going through because of backyard breeders and small circuses and people who breed them simply so they can have cute cubs to have photos taken with.
So I would like to contribute more to help educate people and to give a safe home to these abused and mistreated animals, and you can help!
On October 13th I am going to game for 24 hours and Livestream it for your pleasure, and I would like for you to sponsor me! Your donations will fuel my gaming and keep the big kitties fed, housed, and healthy!
I will probably play Mass Effect, Alan Wake, or Skyrim as those games are livestream friendly.
But it gets better! I am offering a supersponsor spot. For a $50 donation I will do multiplayer with you in Mass Effect 3, Left For Dead 1-2, or Team Fortress 2 for three hours. For a donation of $100 and up I will play Resident Evil 5, Fable 3, or Portal 2 with a single person for three hours, additional amounts will increase the amount of time.
So help some kitties, and listen to me slowly go insane as I game! It's win/win!
