Points For Life
Just heard about this, I’m a sucker for charity events and I think this is a great idea. It would be nice if it went global and each player could donate to children’s hospitals in their respective countries.
What is Points for Life?
Points For Life is a 24hour gaming event on June 5th 2010. Play will start at 9am on June 5th and last through to 9am the following day. It’s up to you to earn as many achievements/trophies as you possibly can. But it not just a full on games event. It’s your chance to give something back. This is for children’s charity, get a sponsor who can sponsor you per point or trophy (or who can just sponsor the event) and earn money for points for two charities, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Child’s Play.
Who’s behind it?
Daniel Lipscombe, deputy editor of the online gaming magazine ‘Resolution’. This explains why go for a gaming event but not his reasons, which are far more personal: “Just over three years ago my three-year-old daughter sadly passed away after a road traffic accident. She was cared for by the staff at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and it made me realise just how much charities like these need our help to continue”
