Wiitendothon – One Week Away!


Hey hey everyone! We are officially ONE WEEK TO WIITENDOTHON! I know, I know, it’s really hard to hold your excitement, (trust us, it is for us too), but we’ve got a whole line-up of announcements this week to keep your hype going all the way until 4PMCT on the 20th of July! In this blog post, we’ll announce some more details about the next week and Wiitendothon, as well as introduce our attendees for the event! So without further ado, let’s get started!

Just a sample of some of the donation incentives for Wiitendothon.

In case you missed it, we released the Wiitendothon donation incentives on Twitter a couple of days ago! This marathon, we’re bringing back all of the fun incentives from marathons past, including the 6AM Pool Dunk, Egg Roulette, and Lemon Social, but we’re also reintroducing a couple of favorites, like Karaoke, eating Raw Onion, and Blindfolded Makeovers. With these occurring in addition to the flash incentive system announced a couple of weeks ago, we hope that we can encourage you to make a contribution to charity: water sometime during the broadcast!

An inside look at the complexities of scheduling of playtimes for Wiitendothon.

The game schedule for Wiitendothon is set to be released to the public on Tuesday, July 18th, being posted publicly as a news post right here on the GFGC Website! Check out this post from a couple weeks ago explaining how our schedule will be broken up!  This schedule will not only reveal the 60+ games we will be playing during the event, but will also give you the start times and players for each one, helping you be sure you catch your favorites!

And of course, I will be attending Wiitendothon as well. I’m very excited to play some of my favorite games during the course of the event, and raise money for a really awesome organization like charity: water in the process! This will be the fourteenth marathon that I am overseeing. I’m getting really hyped, and hope you are too!
