Every year, a number of organizations - personal, private, or professional - will run fundraiser drives for the benefit of Child's Play, a charity focused on helping children in hospitals get better through the power of books, toys, and games, to help speed and ease their time in hospitals.

Minecraft Marathon is a livestream, which is supporting the Child's Play Charity, and will be running from February 22nd at noon PST (20:00 GMT) to February 24th at 5PM PST (1:00 GMT).  Besides the joy of helping out children, there are plenty of reasons to check out the Minecraft Marathon this year!  Donors will be able to hang out on a special server, which will see surprise visits from a number of notable Minecraft personalities!  In addition, there will be many special guests attending, such as Captain Sparklez, AntVenom, and CavemanFilms, just to name a handful.

What about prizes?  There will also be an auction for a really awesome J!NX goodies package, MCProHosting, Mojang-signed goodies from Minecon 2012, and much more!  Want a breakdown?  Here it is!

When:
  • Friday, February 22nd through the 24th

Where:

See you there!

They should all play a giant FFA with soooooooo many people. I'd like to see that. Maybe a large Hunger Games too. Just ideas.
Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

That could be cool. I probably won't have the time to attend, but I hope it'll raise a lot of money!

Malwarebytes caught something with java when I visited this page, a little weird.

Charity = epic
Giant Minecraft Thing = cool
Busy Weekend = sadness

Hope the event gets supported well :)
Define Cute (choose 1):   A) Creepers B) Aerbunnies C) Herobrine. If you chose A): You appeal to destruction and to stereotypes.   If you chose B): You are a perfectly normal person, and enjoy the Aether Mod. If you chose C): Please leave the planet now before you set off a nuclear warhead--no one enjoys mass murders, however nice they might seem to you.
