In conjunction with Toronto Thumbs, Play Till Doomsday is working to promote an upcoming charity event supporting Child’s Play in Toronto. But we need the community’s help (particularly in finding a venue)! The following is written by Jason Wesley, organizer of the fundraiser:
With the holidays fast approaching, my mind turns to charity. I’m sure that many of our readers are aware of Child’s Play; every year, I have always donated a game or two, always amazed to see my contributions being part of a much bigger machine: one which makes my heart swell.
I’m fairly certain that by relation, our readers are aware of the endurance marathon known as Desert Bus For Hope. Last year, I drew up a charity project in the same vein as Desert Bus, but used Rock Band 2 instead. A couple of friends and I were scheduled to play Rock Band to the tune of $5 per song. We had set up a projector at work and played from 5 in the afternoon until 11 that night, raising exactly $500 and a bag of non-perishable food for the Food Bank. The team had an incredible time playing; knowing that everything went to a good cause just made the evening even better. Rock Band 3 will be coming out in only a couple of weeks, and with that, the playlist expands, as does the number of participants.
