Proving that charitable fundraisers aren’t limited to bake sales and golf tournaments, the team at Zeldathon — a semiannual gathering of socially-minded Zelda enthusiasts — has raised more than $300,000 for charities worldwide by livestreaming their gameplay of the The Legend of Zelda series.
The team is now gearing up for Zeldathon Relief, the 13th Zeldathon, which kicks off December 27 in support of Direct Relief.
Fans of the marathon can look forward to their favorite goofy challenges and songs, plus a plethora of new ones, all in homage to the legendary Zelda.
The first marathon to use the new streaming app Pullr ( http://pullr.io ) to read and integrate donations seamlessly, Zeldathon Relief will feature an improved layout, more games, and guests such as Direct Relief CEO Thomas Tighe via the brand new Skype Robot.

As always, 100% of funds to Direct Relief will help people in need gain access to medical care.
