Any of you remember the guys who said they would giveaway FE:A a while back?

Those guys decided to do a videogame livestream for charity for 24 hours. They stayed up all night for donations and only made $25 for all their efforts.

And besides all that they were doing videogame trivia and giving away free used games and even a brand new copy of FE:A for the winners of the questions and a few other prizes in a videogame art contest.

Here's the link to their page: http://thankthebear.tumblr.com/
and here's their twitter: https://twitter.com/ThankTheBear

They said that they plan on doing this more often, and hopefully they can keep going if they get more donations in the future. (and I think they will take used games for contests as well)

Anyway everyone should keep an eye on them and if you have any money to spare next time they're streaming you should maybe give a donation just so they don't feel so bad after all this.

I won FE:A in the contest and will post a picture of it when I get it when it arrives so that everyone can see they are legit.

Also if you agree with their cause or just want them to do more trivia, give away more games etc... spread the word about them so that they can expand a bit. Everybody has to start somewhere and while they're stream wasn't of the highest quality, that's to be expected from people just starting out. If they get more popular they could easily get better equipment etc... but for their first stream, giving away 25 games or so is pretty impressive and I believe that deserves some rewarding.

I won 2 3ds and 2 ds games from them, I wanted fire emblem but did not answer any more questions because I thought it was unfair for the other people, I think their content is good and they did deserve more for their efforts.

I didn't participate 'cause I couldn't think up a good name for a twitter account.
