Let's Help Connecticut Shooting Victims

[ Edited ]

Hey guys, I had an interesting thought. 

Now, we may not be the biggest group, and we may not get much, but maybe we could so something charitable with this game to help some people in need.

You guys have probably already heard about what happened in Connecticut. If you haven't, a few minutes on google should get you caught up.

Newtown Parent Connection is taking donations to go directly to the families affected by the shooting, and I thought it would be cool if we could get a bunch of PSASBR players together, and provide a live stream of matches while asking for donations. Get SuperBot involved to help us spread the word. 

We could show people that us video game junkies can do something really cool in a time of crisis.

What do you all think?

All it would take is for LOTS of users to throw links to matches on YouTube we could stream during the event, or even film some during!

Someone must like the idea!

The website says it's going directly to the families. It's the most local you can get, so you're avoiding a big company like group and getting it in the right hands.

And I'm not even trying to get high quality videos. You have a webcam? Get a video. This more about doing what is right. If you couldn't donate, spread the word; facebook, twitter, google + etc. Come watch the stream.

I think that's a cool idea, but objective question: who here knows about promoting a good live stream or has a direct connection to SuperBot to ask them to do it? Because setting it up is more than agreeing on a forum.

You'd be surprised how easy it can be to get Super Bot to take a notice. A Twitter Bomb can do it quite quickly. If people can get behind this, I can make it happen.
