The SpeedGamers institute, founded by a gamer in Texas who had a bright idea to stream his friends’ weekendly gaming marathons live on the internet for charity, has raised countless thousands for various charities over the years and now includes members from across the world. Currently they are running a Mario marathon, which you can watch live on their site, and even chat with other people watching the action. It’s a great example of the good gaming can do with a little creative thinking and a bit of media attention.1806 Image
