Great Odin's Raven! If you ever wanted to play video games with self-proclaimed video game wiz Will Ferrell, here's your chance to do so—and support a great cause.
The Saturday Night Live alum is asking fans to donate money to help kids who are battling childhood cancers. One lucky donor will get to spend an evening gaming with Ferrell in San Francisco, all of which will be livestreamed on Twitch.
The proceeds from the campaign, being crowdfunded on Indiegogo, will go to Cancer for College and DonateGames.org. The former provides scholarships to cancer survivors; the latter helps children with cancer and their families by using video games and other technology, including selling game bundles to raise money for financial aid or donating video games and equipment to hospitals.
Hear the contest announcement from Will Pharell himself, who allegedly once played Asteroids for 37 hours without taking a bathroom break:
If you don't win Will Ferrell's SuperMegaBlastMax Gamer Challenge, there's still plenty of swag to take home from partners like Amazon, Twitch and Microsoft. There's also awesome limited-edition Ferrell gear including his special gamers' sunscreen, and best of all, signed cowbells. Trust me: We all need a little more cowbell in our life.
