[Donations will be accepted Feb. 13 - Mar. 21, during which we may stream sporadically as time and circumstances allow. Please feel free to donate early and often! However, our main fundraising event will be held Mar. 9-12. Please tune in and help us be huge dorks for Doctors Without Borders!]
Retrorama is an annual, live streaming, gaming-for-charity event hosted at Retrorama.NET.
Every March, a group of 8-16 friends pile into a tiny apartment living room in Edwardsville, IL to stream 35 years of video games along a general theme, played frustratingly poorly. They give away prizes provided by sponsors and crafters, chat and have fun with viewers, compete for meaningless titles and trophies, sing and dance like lunatics, and generally sacrifice themselves on the altar of dignity for the sake of entertainment. They gladly do whatever viewers would like in order to drive awareness, traffic, and donations directly to Doctors Without Borders.
All of their events are funded completely out-of-pocket: equipment, rentals, airfare, food and lodging, advertising, prize shipping, even time often coincides with vacation taken from their normal jobs. Neither Retrorama.NET nor any of its members accept any part of any donation made. All monetary donations go directly to Doctors Without Borders, and all product donations are given away as incentives.
Our annual live stream kicks off at 12pm CST on March 9, 2017 and goes until we either kill each other, pass out from exhaustion, or 6pm CST March 12-- whichever comes first. Please help us spread the word and join us in our sixth year of inane idiocy at Retrorama.NET! <3
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an independent international medical humanitarian organization that provides aid to people in more than 70 countries whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters.
