GFGC Winter Is Curing and Nintendothon – Wrap-Up

With the GFGC Winter Is Curing Campaign now two weeks behind us, I thought it would be a great time to look back on the fundraiser campaign we hosted for the benefit of St. Jude, and celebrate the accomplishments and great strides made in the fight against childhood cancer.

On the morning on December 27th, 2017, the GFGC Winter is Curing campaign had raised a grand total of $75 for the benefit of St. Jude; the most one of our campaigns has ever raised before its marathon event. For that, I must give big thanks to all of those who streamed for the benefit of the Winter is Curing campaign in the months of November and December- you helped set a new GFGC fundraising record and helped in our fight against childhood cancer:

  • LegitCrafter03
  • Morbze
  • Arflic

The GFGC Winter is Curing campaign culminated with the Nintendothon marathon, running from December 27th, 2017 to December 31st, 2017. Being the marathon team’s first delve into a solely Nintendo game event, we sought to make Nintendothon our best marathon yet, setting production quality and new faces as top priorities. After completing 100+ hours of gameplay, incentives, and fun, the campaign raised a total of $2,900, thanks in large part to a donation from Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon. However the event would not have been such a success without all of your support; your chat messages, donations, and sharing the cause on social media truly made the premiere of the Nintendothon series one we will always remember, and hope to continue to produce another great marathon for all of you this summer!

I want to personally give some appreciation and attention to the generous individuals who helped contribute to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during the campaign. Thank you all for your donations, you’ve helped make a dent in the fight against pediatric disease:
