Kong-O-Thon 24hr Marathon Fundraiser
« on: November 08, 2021, 05:13:08 pm »
G'day from Oz Everyone,

I'll be doing a live stream for 24hrs straight from Netherworld in Brisbane on the 15th and 16th of November.

It's a fundraising event for a charity here in Australia called Headspace which aims to help kids with their mental health. They're a fantastic organisation and service 138 communities across Australia.

If you could tune in on at twitch.tv/netherworldarcade I would greatly appreciate it as I'll need the support, particularly in the early hours of the morning.

Also if you have a spare few dollary-doos laying around and would like to support the cause please do so at https://www.mycause.com.au/page/270512/kongothon

Hoping to see all of you there!

Cheers!

Almost at $2k... cmon Kong-ians, let's blow this out of the water for mental health, and we all know if there was ever a need for mental health it would be in the Kong community!  <Billy>  <Allen>  <Kuh>  <Mruczek>  ;D

8 hours in and Aaron hits a new PB of 412k!
Also sitting at just over $3000 in donations which is EPIC.

Everyone get in there and show your support, even if it means leaving the stream up on your PC/phone while you're busy/asleep

Aaron is an ABSOLUTE LEGEND!  Kreygasm Kreygasm Kreygasm
Making the 24 hours and raising over $7500 in the process. $7000 over his goal!! Incredible
He also beat his PB twice in process! How good

It's great to see so much positivity in the community.
