Want to help TSG?

Hello community,
We all know that bills suck but they’re part of life. Recently the suckage has been tenfold with student loans coming to fruition and rent going up. In our little over 4 years of existence we have always payed for the web hosting and database out of pocket as well as shipping fees for the prizes that we give out at marathons. It is now catching up to me and I’m asking for a bit of help from you guys. I’m going to set a goal of $80 a month for the web hosting/database fees and to also help offset shipping costs which you guys can help contribute to through a chipin on the right hand side of our website and on top of the forums. Any donation would be much appreciated. I’d like to do something each month to show thanks.  Each month that we hit the $80 goal, that next Sunday my brother and I will do a 3 hour stream as a thank you to the community. For every $10 over the goal we will stream an additional hour capping at an additional 12 hours. On top of that, we will have a sponsor’s page to pay tribute to those who have helped. Leave in your chipin comment what name you would like on the sponsors page as long as it’s appropriate.  We will also be giving away steam games each month to a random donor. To get on the sponsor page or in the steam raffle, you have to donate at least a dollar.

Thank you for the continued support from the community. We look forward to helping many more great causes.
Sincerely,
Britt

Update #2 Tomorrow (Sunday September 1st) from 3pm-6pm Chase and I will stream Mari0, a Mario 1/Portal co-op flash game. It looks like it will be a lot of fun and entertaining to watch. Then on Sunday October 7th, I’ll be streaming from Noon to Midnight for crushing our September goal.

The next Chipin widget reset will be October 1st.

Update: We’ve already surpassed our goal! You guys are great! Since there is only a week left in August the money will be going toward the month of September’s goal. This means you guys will probably accumulate a lot of bonus hours for September. As a thank you for such a great start, I’ll be streaming next Sunday, September 2nd. I‘m still trying to figure out what time would be best for the viewers and then I’ll update this post with the time.

Marathon Wrap-up

Whewwwww, what a week!  We broke all of our donation records and goals. This was our most ambitious marathon and with everyone’s help we put on our best show yet. We raised over $59,000 for ACT Today and beat our gaming goal of catching all 646 available Pokemon.

The support we received from everyone was incredible. I can’t thank enough all of our sponsors/supporters along with all of the help we get within from our marketing team, ops and mods.

The marathon was extremely draining in terms of man power at the barn.  We had to exhaust all of our resources. Over 20 people volunteered throughout the week to either play, commentate or help out with the back end of the marathon. Thank you guys for sticking through those long nights and tough shifts. You are all the best people and my best friends.

I’ll be putting together some sort of retrospective video within the next 2 weeks so be sure to be subscribes to our youtube! http://www.youtube.com/thespeedgamers

Up next, the Mario Marathon! We will be posting info about the Mario marathon over the following weeks and months to get you pumped and informed for our next event. Our tentative start date is December 14th 2012.
