When Destructoid turned six years old, our benevolent Lord Niero wanted to lead the company, and the community, into even more charitable endeavors than ever before. What El Jefe unveiled was a campaign to send Destructoid staff to Costa Rica, putting their keyboard-caressing hands to the mortar building houses with Habitat for Humanity. At the time of writing this, Destructoid's fund sits at a total $1,720 in donations. We hope to reach our goal of $6,000 by the end of this weekend, but we're offering something in return for your donations.
This weekend on Destructoid TV, we are bringing a solid block of livestream entertainment, 56 hours long! All of our regularly scheduled shows are on as usual, with Dtoid broadcasters from all over the week pitching in with shows all day and night for the sake of this worthy cause. We're going to have giveaways for donators throughout the weekend. In addition, the broadcasters will have their own milestones to perform when donation goals are met. Expect embarrassment to the highest degree. Read the full schedule below.
