Press Release: Charity Stream
By:Louis Wu
Date: 4/24/13 4:35 pm

Just received this from MasterSundown - this seemed like the easiest place to post it.

April 15th, 2013 changed the lives of the people of Boston and its surrounding communities. Since the National Grifball Association is headquartered out of Boston, we felt action should be taken on our behalf to help our fellow citizens in this time of need. Over the next two weeks, we will be holding multiple "marathon-themed" Grifball events, and we have an open charitable donation campaign on Donations are now being accepted, and will continue to be open throughout the events. Please give generously, as every donation will completely go to The One Fund Boston, Inc. We are also looking to have the event sponsored, and details for any sponsorships will arrive in the coming days. If you are reading this, and would like to help us in the way of sponsorship, please send an email to SquirrelBurrito or MasterSundown. Should this happen, we may hold prize raffles and other events to help raise money for those who were injured, and their families.


May 4th 6:00PM Eastern - May 5th 8:20PM Eastern - live 26.2 hour Grifball stream. We are asking interested community leaders and Halo personalities to join us on the stream on the NGA Grifball channel for half-hour blocks of Grifball. We are maintaining a Google document with all available time slots. Please contact us in any of the ways listed on the document if you are interested in participating.

May 6th - May 12th: We will be encouraging the community to commit to playing 26 games of Grifball during this week. Players who report their games through a form on our site will be eligible to win prizes when the week is over. We will also give a prize to the player who gets the most sponsorships for this event. More details, including how to donate or sponsor your favorite Grifballer, can be found here, and will continue to be updated as the event nears.

In addition, we are strongly considering holding a pay-to-play Grifball tournament, to be held on or around May 18th, depending on the amount of interest from the community at large. 80% of the fees for the tournament will be donated to charity, and 20% will go to the winning team. If this is something you and your Grifball team would be interested in, please drop us a line. There will be a cap of 16 teams (with four players) for this event.

To stay up-to-date with this charity drive and our events, be sure to watch the forums, as well as following @grifballnet, @squirrelburrito, and @MasterSundown on Twitter. Thank you for your time and support!
