Marathon over!

Thank you to everyone who came to watch Speed Demos Archive‘s Japan Relief Done Quick and raised money for Doctors Without Borders! At the end of the marathon, we raised $22,718.92! That’s certainly a lot of money to help all those in Japan needing medical help after the horrible earthquakes and tsunami. We couldn’t have done it without all of you.

Even metroids like raising money for charity! (And draining life energy.)

My plushies seemed to be a hit, and I couldn’t be more pleased. It makes me feel wonderful to give my time as well as my money to a great cause. The final two plushies I made were a Metroid (see above; Ravelry page here) and a surprise, last-minute Ocarina of Time (Ravelry page here).

Note: does not make sounds like a real ocarina. ;)

More plushies, hats, and other goods are always on the way.

Working up a storm

I’m knitting things like crazy, to give away as donation incentives during Speed Demos Archive’s Japan Relief Done Quick! You can watch it now, and help raise money for Doctors Without Borders. One of my plushies has already been given away, and there are 9 more waiting to be given out!

Please come visit SDA and help us raise money for Japan!

Get some megavitamins…

…because I’ve just found three rather big viruses!

Viruses!

These are, yet again, for SDA’s Japan Relief Done Quick! We’ll be raising money for Doctors Without Borders, who are currently doing humanitarian work in Japan to aid the tsunami and earthquake victims. If you donate $5 or more during the speedrun of Dr. Mario, you’ll have a chance to win one of these three viruses! Please help us raise money for a wonderful charity, and have fun watching us speedrun games!

Time to grind…

There only seems to be one… but I just know he’ll start calling for help.

Fobby!

Yes, it’s a Fobby, from the game Earthbound! (Ravelry project page here.) As you might have guessed, this little guy will also be given away to a random donor who gives $5 or more to Doctors Without Borders during the speedrun of Earthbound at JRDQ. I’m on a bit of a roll today, finishing two plushies and already considering a third… I should probably get some rest instead, though. More plushies are calling to me, but I’ll work on them tomorrow!
