A Livestreaming ZELDA Marathon Is Raising Money for Charity Right Now

In case you’re not aware, playing video games non-stop for days at a time, believe it or not, has been turned into a good thing. For example, Awesome Games Done Quick is a charity video game marathon, and at this year’s event, gamers and fans managed to raise over $2.2 million for charity. Stephen Colbert even got in on the action around this time last year, when he raced against a Super Mario Bros. 3 player and a track team (it makes sense when you watch the video, promise).

AGDQ may be the biggest video game charity livestream in town, but it’s not the only one bringing in big bucks for an important cause. Zeldathon is another major player: The event, which is like AGDQ but focuses on The Legend of Zelda games, has so far raised $1.5 million over 18 marathons, including upwards of $376,000 during the most recent event.

Is The Nintendo Switch Worth Your Money?

This year’s marathon, dubbed Zeldathon Wild, is live right now, and the cause this year is The WILD Foundation, which works to protect the environment. As of this posting, the event has raised over $89,000, so if you’ve been meaning to watch somebody who is probably better at games than you are play The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D (which they’re doing right now) or a different Zelda title, this is probably the best possible way for you to do that.

Learn more about Zeldathon and how to donate at its website, watch the stream above (sorry for the autoplay video, by the way), and let us know in the comments which game you’re most looking forward to watching.
