Kwartzlab will be hosting a public charity event called Headshots from
the Heart. This is an online marathon where a team of four players
will play through as much of Borderlands as they can in a twenty-four
hour period and encourage viewers to donate to Child's Play, a
Seattle-based charity run by Penny-Arcade, which provides toys and
video games to children's hospitals worldwide. Headshots is not merely
a marathon of extended play, but a test of skill. Borderlands is a
co-operative first person shooter, and anyone has the option of
pledging an amount to be donated for each enemy defeated with a shot
to the head, which pushes our players to stay at the top of their game
throughout the event.
The event begins at 1:00pm on Saturday the 26th of May, and will run
until 1:00pm on Sunday the 27th.
The event runs at Kwartzlab, and will be broadcast live to
headshotsmarathon.org. During the broadcast, there will be auctions,
interviews, challenges, performances and more.
We would like to encourage members and friends of Kwartzlab to come
out to this event, and hang out, show off or demonstrate your
projects, and be interviewed. You may also volunteer to help run the
event. [We will need to find members to be present for the entire
event, and I'll post a signup list for this separately.]
* If you are available to demo your work or participate in an
interview, please email admin at headshotsmarathon.org so that they can
fit you in to their broadcast schedule.
* If you would like to volunteer to help run the event, you can sign
up on the forum at www.headshotsmarathon.org.
For more information, including updates on auction items and
challenges or to volunteer to help us out, you can follow our Twitter
