It's that time of year where we do a live podcast for 12 hours and raise money for charity. Join us?
It's time for Nintendo World Report's annual telethon for Child's Play charity, where we talk about Nintendo for half a day while raising money for the kids.
What is Child's Play? "A game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 100 hospitals worldwide"
What are we doing? A 12 hour telethon to raise money that will provide games and toys for kids in hospital. We'll also be giving away a smorgasbord of prizes for listeners during the telethon!
When? Saturday, December 2, starting at 11:30 AM Eastern.
How can I help? Show up at. Spread the word. Donate.
Where? Right here! The chat, stream link, and donation widget will be in this very article!
We have over 12 hours of content planned - but for us to get to all of it, we're going to need your donations to unlock the later segments. Here is our schedule, and the donation levels required to unlock them.
