Zeldathon Raises $45k for Charity Water

A group of gamers and Zelda series fans came together on December 27 to kick off a five-day Zelda-focused gaming marathon to raise money for charity. The event lasted until January 1, 2013, and while the gang was probably physically and mentally exhausted, they managed to raise a lot of money for the charity of their choice.

Fun For Freedom played through many of Nintendo's popular RPG adventure games during the course of the five days, streaming all their antics on this Twitch.tv channel. To keep viewers watching and to raise a little extra cash the group also engaged in extracurricular activities like singing and improving MC beats.

They also managed to beat a number of Zelda games (including some oddball ones that might not be considered "official" Zelda titles in some circles) during the marathon including Faces of Evil, Ocarina of Time, Oracle of Seasons, Wand of Gamelon, Skyward Sword, Link's Awakening DX, Majora's Mask, FrankerZ, Phantom Hourglass, Zelda's Adventure, Four Swords Adventures, The Minish Cap, Spirit Tracks, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Zelda II, Battle Quest, Link's Crossbow Training, Oracle of Ages, A Link to the Past, and Zelda I.

At the end of it all, the gang managed to raise 45,301.00 for charity: water, a non-profit organization that helps provide clean drinking water to people in developing countries.
