Last year we raised more than $4800 for Child's Play. Going by the older Telethon articles, it looks like in 2014 we hit $6200, in 2013 we hit $7200, and in 2012 we hit around $5000?

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

Maybe no theme song singing this year, though. 😉

If they have any kind of heart, Nintendo better release some NX news by the time the Telethon starts.

As always, I spent the entire year before this telethon obsessing about what prizes we'd be able to give out live during the telethon.

Lets raise more money for the kids.
I will match the total amount (up to $1500) donated by noon on Friday. So donate early and it counts double.

There goes my entire Saturday. That's a great lineup of content. I'll do what I can to make sure we get to hear what will no doubt be a well thought out and informative segment from Jon and James near the end.

That's amazing of you. Do you mind if I publicize it? I'm thinking I might add my own match on top.

I'm in a tight place financially, but I will be seeing what I can scrape together this week to donate. I do have someone who owes me a bit of crash that I can toss your way.

Even if you don't have anything you can spare this year what ALWAYS helps is if you aid in getting the word out! Lure them with our comprehensive list of glittering prizes, mention it during your daily conversations (my boss donated today when I talked about it!), tell them of insanity-driven shenanigans... it all contributes guys!
