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.
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.
