So we reported recently on the rather awesome efforts of community-member Gharphield, who's about to undertake a 24-hour gaming challenge to raise money for charity. Well, we've gotten a report from the man himself... so far, he's raised over $1000 for the Make-a-wish Foundation!
To be exact, he's hit the $1330 mark, and counting. Even better, is that this means he's hit all the incentive marks... And yes, he's a man of his word.
If he raised over $400, Gharph promised he'd wax his legs. Well, the kit has been purchased, and he's committed to waxing his gams the night of the event. For $600, he pledged to dye his hair green - at the moment it's been bleached, awaiting the final Atomic treatment.
Also happening on the night, the consumption of a super hot chilli sauce - that's the $800 pledge handled. And for the $1000 mark, Gharph promised to let his wife - who, like him, is a pretty neat hand with the Brazilian Juijitsu - choke him into unconciousness. Want to see what that looks like?
That, my friends, is dedication. And if you want to see more dedication, make sure you tune into the live stream of the 24 hours of gaming itself - remember, that's when Gharp is going to wax his legs and melt his tongue.
Mad props to the man. Gharphield - tougher than you. Let's give him some more money, right here, and join in the official thread here.
