Desert Bus marathon raises over $132,000 for charity
Isn't it crazy how a minigame from an unreleased Sega CD title has been so crucial in helping to raise money for charity? Don't get me wrong -- most of the credit goes to LoadingReadyRun, the group who uses said minigame for its fundraiser -- but still. It's kinda hilarious how it all turned out, in a way.
It's the sort of inspirational story that would usually be made into a movie and even though I wouldn't go see the film in a theater, I'd appreciate that other people had the opportunity to learn more about such a heartwarming tale.
Getting back on topic, Wired reports that $132,608.94 was earned for Child's Play during the five-day-long Desert Bus event. We tip our hats to your unparalleled dedication and willingness to put your sanity at risk, good sirs.
