Zeldathon Lives, this summer’s Zeldathon, is raising money for the National Foundation for Transplants. A team of Zelda gamers is streaming five days of nonstop gameplay until July 10 at 4 p.m. (EDT).

So far, the team has raised over $20,000 with an ultimate goal of $50,000. In a press release for NFT, Matthew Moffit, co-founder of the Zeldathon Network stated:

“We wanted to make it possible to give the gift of life. Transplants do that; they make it possible for somewhere out there to live! That’s something that hits home with us and really gets to what we wanted to accomplish. That’s why we called this marathon Zeldathon Lives, because we are directly giving life to those transplant patients who are helped by our donations.”

The Memphis, Tenn. based National Foundation for Transplants is a nonprofit organization that helps patients needing transplants afford medical treatment. In three years of marathons, the Zeldathon Network has raised over $100,000 for various charities across the globe.

    Zeldathon is pretty awesome, and I used to watch them and TSG marathons as well, but it's too time consuming for me right now. I wish them the best of luck and hope they reach their goal and beyond! One day when I have money maybe I will donate!
