The Conclusion of "Valvathon for a C.U.R.E." and the Future

"Valvathon for a C.U.R.E." has now ended. Over the duration of the marathon we were able to raise over $500 for Project C.U.R.E. We extend a very warm and grateful "thanks" to all who contributed!

This second experience of ours has made us reconsider the effectiveness of the video game marathon for smaller groups such as ourselves. Perhaps there is a different way for us to raise money for the charities we want to support that is more efficient and suitable to our strengths? This is the question we are currently asking ourselves, and hopefully, we will soon have a satisfying answer.

Get Ready for "Valvathon for a C.U.R.E"

That's right kids! Our next live show will happening on November 11, 2011 and we are going to be tackling the thick and highly acclaimed Valve library to raise money for the charity Project C.U.R.E., a charity that several of us have volunteered at locally several times. From their website, here is a description of who they are and what they do; "PROJECT C.U.R.E. (Commission on Urgent Relief & Equipment) was founded in 1987 to help meet the need for medical supplies, equipment, and services around the world. PROJECT C.U.R.E. builds sustainable healthcare infrastructure by providing the medical supplies and equipment that medical personnel need to deliver healthcare to their communities. Since its inception, PROJECT C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief to needy people in more than 120 countries."

We are going to be starting at 9:00 AM on the morning of November 11 and we are planning to end around noon on November 13. There are going to be all sorts of crazy, exciting things happening as we attempt to play through all of Valve's singleplayer experiences and dabble in their multiplayer offerings. Project C.U.R.E. ships out containers of medical supplies. Each one costs $20,000, so we thought it would be reasonable to make our goal this time to match that price. Make sure to come and support Project C.U.R.E. with a donation! Here is the list of games we plan to tackle, in the order in which we will play them:

Half Life
Half Life: Opposing Force
Alien Swarm
Half Life: Blue Shift
Day of Defeat Source
Half Life 2
Half Life 2: Lost Coast
Left 4 Dead = Console
Half Life 2: Episode One
Counter Strike
Team Fortress Classic
Half Life 2: Episode Two
Deathmatch Classic
Counter Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes
Left 4 Dead 2 = Console
Half Life 2: Deathmatch
Team Fortress 2
Portal 2 = Console
Day of Defeat
Counter Strike Source
Garry's Mod

And So We Have Finished...

We have officially ended our marathon of the Halo series. It was an excellent experience and we are thinking about planning more live events in the future. Everyone on the Frags Out Of Love team would like to thank everyone who was involved and all of the donors who helped us raise money for Child's Play Charity. We also extend our thanks to everyone who helped us spread the word of the event through Twitter and the support of both Child's Play and

In total, we were able to raise $325. Though this might not have met our goal, we are still really proud of making it 32% of the way.
