2010 Charity Zeldathon Begins

Back in 2008, Pablo Penton and Sean Gonzalez started Zeldathon. This year, it’s on again. Zeldathon is a 72 hour Zelda marathon that raises money for the National Children’s Advocacy Center. The NCAC is a non-profit organization that works to fight child-abuse and neglect.

Today (July 5th, 2010), at 6pm EST, the charity Zelda marathon begins. The team will spend the next 3 days going through the Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess raising as much as they can for the charity along the way, the goal being $1000.

Track their progress on the Zelda Team website or on the Justin.TV channel. Donations are also appreciated.

I think what they’re doing is great and I wish them luck. I know I’ve spent many days enthralled in a game and could’ve only hoped that my time was as well spent. Good for you Pablo and Sean, and everyone contributing.

  • We need more things like this……shame that people only tend 2 help issues if it somehow benifit’s them but its a good way 2 get people 2gether 2 actually do something.
    Now if only video games could do something about our government.
    Musicians and gamers should start a revolution…….we should have something like woodstock but do it 2010 style instead of a outdoor event make it indoors and instead of just having music add some gaming 2 it and hi-tech gadgets.

    • Instead of real bands, have people playing Guitar Hero and/or Rock Band on stage! lol
