      DBFH is "the Internet's longest running charity marathon." For fifteen years now, they've fundraised on behalf of Child's Play Charity for children who live in hospitals and in shelters for victims of domestic violence.

      The event runs continuously, 24h/day on their twitch channel for an expected period of roughly one week. During this time, unpaid volunteer entertainers play games, do contests and comedy bits, take challenges from chat for songs, dances, readings, etc. and call-ins from guests while simultaneously raffling and auctioning various game culture and pop culture related items donated by sponsors or made throughout the year by unpaid volunteer crafters.

      Every year it's a really good time with a great community, so for those who weren't aware of the event I thought I'd mention it here. Last year alone the community managed to raise more than one million US dollars, and more than 7.1 million dollars throughout the life of the project so far, entirely for charity. Hope folks from here would like to join in and (if you can) donate (responsibly).

      Hi Everyone!

      I'm looking to donate some money to a charity that is focused on helping children learn how to code.
      I've always heard that lots of charities are scams, and I was hoping to get the opinions of you fine folks about a good charity to donate to!
