Over the past five years, the Penny Arcade sponsored charity Child’s Play has raised over 5 million dollars in donations for sick kids in children’s hospitals throughout the world. This year, Gamer Limit has decided to lend their time, hands, and controllers to help this excellent cause through our Piece of Heart gaming marathon.
Starting at 5PM (CST) on December 4th, Gamer Limit staff members will convene at locations in both the United States and Australia for a 48 hour gaming marathon to help raise awareness and donations for Child’s Play.
Both locations will be hosting live video streams of both participants and game footage as they race each other through the majority of the Ratchet and Clank series. Tune in at any time during the event to root your team on, participate in contests, and even listen in during a live recording of the Limitcast.
The event begins in one week, so bookmark the official event site. Contests, live chat and live streaming of video and audio will all appear on the separate event page.

All donations are handled via Chipin.com – meaning your generous gift goes directly to Child’s Play. For more information on the charity, visit their webpage at Childsplaycharity.org.
More details will be available shortly, but don’t hesitate to get the ball rolling with an early donation!
