Donations in the denomination of $20, we will play an NES game of your choice.
For every $35 donation you make your name will be entered once into the raffles.
If you donate $50 or more Nintendo Age will reward you with an MS award icon, and you can select 3 games to be played.

For those who donate $100, they will be entered into the raffles 3 times, can select 6 games and receive an MS award icon.

To break down how it works, if you were to donate $70 you could select 4 games for us to play live on stream, get your name entered twice into the raffles, and receive an award icon. WOW!

Twitch came out with a mobile app, so it is possible to check in every so often if you would like. You won't have to miss any of the nonstop NES action.

Oh man, how many raffles do I have to buy to get a shirt for the third straight year?
Do you make them in 6 month old sizes? We could be "that family" at PRGE this year.

The reason NESathon keeps happening every year is because of folks like him. We hope to make a difference in peoples lives and one day contribute to a cure.

Looking forward to watching and donating this year.

Additionally, I want to apologize for requesting Dragon's Lair a couple years back, though it gave me a good chuckle. I enjoyed watching that week!
