Ahhhh…Don’t you just love the holidays? It’s time full of family, fun, friends, food, and all manner of generally positive activities. One especially positive activity that I particularly enjoy is a bit of a charitable giving. Especially charitable giving that takes place in a fun-filled environment with all of the aforementioned aspects and more! But dear author, what type of an event could you possibly be alluding to that would encompass all of these elements?

Well friends, it’s the ever so wonderful and gratifying charity livestream! The particular one referring of course  is called “Pwnies for a Cause” and it’s hosted by the up and coming gaming centered podcast, Bluescreen Bronies! The event, which will be taking place on the 29th of December from noon until Midnight EST will be hosted on Everfree Network and it will be featuring all manner of merriment to raise money for Kiki’s Cancer Treatment Fund! So if you fancy some video games and charity, then this is the event for you! Check out the full press release after the break for information relevant links, and the likes. Take care and enjoy the full moon tonight!

Update: Seems the event is not being hosted on EFN anymore. You can find it here: http://t.co/IMgcSkim

    “These alternative treatments include Spiritual treatments in person and long distance, Nutritional support, Alternative potential cure options that was claimed by people to be effecting (We got to try) and anything that we feel may help.”

    Sounds like people are donating to support hucksters selling snake oil and false hope.

      I wouldn’t say that. I’ve met Ami (Kiki’s father) in person and I have to say that they are genuine people who need the help, despite my own reservations about some of their methods. You also have to keep in mind that Kiki has been deemed beyond the effective scope of chemo, so it’s not really an option to go with the traditional route to begin with.

      Seeing as how no parent wants to tell their kid, “sorry love, there’s nothing we can do”, I can understand why they are trying to find anything that could possibly work. I’d do the same or at least make the process as comfortable as possible for my kid. It’s no easy situation to be in and it’s certainly made more complicated with the state of our healthcare system currently.

      But either way, if you don’t agree with the cause, then don’t donate to it. That’s your prerogative. But I just wanted to make sure that at least you try to understand where they are coming from, or at least think about what you would do if you were entrapped in a similar situation.

        You don’t have to explain where they are coming from. Everyone knows they’re in a difficult situation. The fact is they’re asking for money form strangers and using it to support people that prey on the desperate. These people will use their money to sucker in more people, both those who may or may not be better cured by research-backed medicine.
