MineThon is this weekend. Here’s a little write up by Gaz that puts it very nicely.
"So there is this great event going on over the weekend, MineThon are streaming 72-hours of Minecraft in aid of the AbleGamers Charity. Viewers can get involved by joining the MineThon server (for a small donation of $3) and can also enter raffles and bid on some great items. Not only is it a very fun weekend of Minecraft, but its for a great cause.
AbleGamers design peripherals and improve experiences for disabled gamers who are disadvantaged (or completely frozen out) when playing video games. As someone who enjoys playing the odd game or two, this really means a lot to me! (More info here: http://www.ablegamers.com/)
I also know some of the people hosting the event and I know the huge personal effort that these volunteers are putting into this weekend. In past years it has been very entertaining, and there is no reason why it won’t be this year, so I urge anyone interested to get on over to the stream, which starts at 11 am (6 am EST) on Friday 25 July, at the link below. Any shares are also appreciated!”
So please if you like or play Minecraft (or even if you don’t - give it a try!) Go on their server this weekend and have some fun! It’s cheap, cheerful, fun and is run by some awesome people! Go for it! xx
