We're raising money for the children!


Thanks everyone for making this another great year for our Charity Live Stream! We tried a lot of new things this year and would love to hear any feedback you have! The full show recording and bonus segments are coming soon!


It's time for Nintendo World Report's Charity Live Stream, 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? An all day Live Stream to raise money that will provide games and toys for kids in hospital. The more money we raise, the longer we go! Even if we hit our goal we'll continue with additional stretch goals!

We’ll also be giving out prizes in a multitude of ways both on-air during the live stream and in the days leading up to it! See below for a detailed list of more than 59 different prizes to choose from!

Check back here during the live stream for new giveaways EVERY HOUR! (Giveaway entry forms are at the bottom of this article)

9th NWR Charity Telethon Post-Event Giveaway


NESticalesDecember 31, 2018

This is great news! I was afraid this wasn't happening since its usually in the fall. Very glad to see the tradition rolls on, I'm excited to be participating and donating just as i have every year since yall started it.


I couldn't plan it this year so we had a little delay getting it off the ground. Once we did it made sense to wait until after the holidays, since this thing is tough to put together.

EnnerDecember 31, 2018

Woo! Lets get this 'thon going!

ClexYoshiJanuary 02, 2019

It begiiiiiiiiiiiins~!

LemonadeJanuary 02, 2019

This will be happening on Australia Day, so that makes it extra good.

I streamed all of Devil's Third a few months ago. I actually like the game.

pdoksusJanuary 05, 2019

Same as last year, I will match the total amount (up to $2000) donated by noon on Jan 22. So donate early and it counts double.

We've added a new stretch goal, because you can donate to torture more people

ShyGuyJanuary 20, 2019

Updated with a preliminary prize list PLUS an earlybird pre-event giveaway!

ClexYoshiJanuary 23, 2019

Seriously, thank you for putting your 1%er power towards helping a noble cause, Pdoksus.

TOPHATANT123January 23, 2019

ShyGuyJanuary 27, 2019

$176.31 to go for the next goal! Daan Playing Mario Party 5!

LemonadeJanuary 27, 2019

It was a great event. I listed to close to 8 hours of it live. Im very glad I got to call in twice and talk to Dr Metts about Dragon Quest.

I look forward to listening to the parts I missed whenever the recording gets published.

Cool Uncle VinceJanuary 29, 2019

Will the full telethon be released for download?  The way NWR had the first & last segments this week was different than the usual release schedule.

ShyGuyJanuary 31, 2019

Pokepal, you son of a gun!


pokepal148Spencer Johnson, Contributing WriterJanuary 31, 2019

Have fun Daan. :smug:

Oh and last second stretch goal, if we reach $5100 I'll host a special April Fools Mafia game.

Looks like Daan is going to to get his party hat on!
