Live show: Dtoid teaming up with GameOn for charity drive

Destructoid is joining forces with the GameOn community in an effort to raise money for the Child's Play charity organization. Child's Play is dedicated to providing videogames, toys, and books to ailing children in hospitals all over the world. Countless sources from the video game industry and gaming communities proudly donate so that suffering children can be eased by the joy of videogames.

One way gamers have been known to give back is videogame streaming marathons. GameOn is a community of videogame streamers and viewers that has made it an annual tradition to run multiplayer gaming marathons to bring donations to Child's Play. With four marathons completed so far, GameOn has raised over $20,000 in total for the cause.

 

King Foom has long been a member of GameOn and has recently joined Destructoid's TwitchTV channel, so for this year's events, Foom is bringing the families together. King Foom will be doing his leg of GameOn's streaming campaign on Destructoid's channel. From 9pm Eastern tonight to 9am Eastern this Sunday, Foom will be playing a slew of multiplayer games with his friends and viewers.

Throughout GameOn's 5th Annual Multiplayer Marathon, there will be around a dozen other broadcasters running concurrently during the 36-hour period. Each caster has set milestone events, promising to do something wacky and entertaining when donation goals are met. Of course, all proceeds go directly to Child's Play.

You can watch Foom's marathon effort on Destructoid's TwitchTV channel or see all of GameOn's casters participating in this event on Swiftor.com.
