It starts at 10 AM today (Saturday, 7/18/09) and goes for 24 hours.
Cancer doesn't just kill the people who get the disease. Cancer kills the spirits of those around them too. It's one of the reasons that, when people get the opportunity to work on raising funds to beat cancer, you see a lot of wonderful efforts being made. (Which see the recent ESPN Radio "V Foundation" auction for the Jimmy V Foundation (1-800-4-JIMMYV) and the "Extra Life" initiative, which a second one will be done this October.)
2) I know this has been mentioned several previous times on the TTTO, but I'm following the efforts of The Speed Gamers (thespeedgamers.com) in their efforts to raise $20,000 for Autism Care and Treatment. They completed Final Fantasy I in about 8 hours or so, and are now in the 13th hour of a week-long marathon of speed runs for the Final Fantasy series.
Check out both of these online charity gaming events. Please.
