Ok so I was watching the SDA charity marathon and I swear I heard someone say that Riot Ames donated. Just wondering if I was hearing stuff or not.

Necro! (Because I can, and I'm doing a rare 'search my own name')

That was me! A lot of us here in the office were watching while we worked. I actually donated a few times. Anything that gets gamers involved with good causes is awesome.

We (gamers) had a bad rep for a long time- now that culture is shifting in our direction more and more, I think it's great for us to set a good example. And even if you don't care about that, it was a ton of entertainment for not really that much spent (in my case).

There's a lot of efforts like this one that go by on these forums - I've participated in a few in one way or another.

Do you do Desert Bus? One of my friends is all over that when they play.

Haha, not every time, but I have. The thing that I latched onto the most about the SDA one isn't the speed runs (except Super Monkey Ball, holy), but the commentary along the way.

I also really enjoy the League ones. Most/all of them haven't gotten as big as SDA or Desert Bus, but everything counts.

True enough. Maybe someone can organize a tourney with pros for some charity, and Riot can cast it. I don't even know where to start with something like that, but it'd be cool to see.

League charity runs? How does that work?
