Two brothers, Tim and Vernon Shaw, are holding an Amnesia charity marathon this weekend and will be streaming it on Ustream. What sets this apart from the typical gaming marathon fundraiser? They will play it while people will try to scare them in real life!
Vernon will play on Saturday while his brother Tim and a couple of volunteers will try to scare him in real life, creating life-long trauma and possible stream hilarity. The next day, the tables are turned and Vernon will get to act out his revenge while his brother is playing. The brothers are also donating $0.25 for every time they swear while playing the game.
All donations will go to Camp Kesem, a camp for children of cancer patients that allows them to escape their troubles for a week. The stream starts at 6 PM Pacific Time on both days (two hours from now). For more information about the fundraiser, check out their website.
And if you need more fundraiser streams this weekend, 8WayRun.com is helping out GameDay -- a fundraising event for the International Video Game Hall Of Fame & Museum -- with a weekend-long stream over here.
