Mission Statement

We're playing out the water crisis, one video game at a time. You pick the games, we play 'em.

TL;DR: Donate, pick a game from this list: http://wp.me/p47vWj-6U and leave the name of the game in your comment. Then watch June 12th-14th to see if the Wheel of Destiny lands on your game!
For 48 hours in mid-June, Stephonee, Grant, and the rest of the crew at the U-Pick Video Game Marathon for Charity will play the games selected by our donors and broadcast a live-stream of all the gameplay!
100% of everything we raise will directly fund water projects in Uganda. And when those projects are finished, charity: water will send you proof in pictures and GPS coordinates, so you can see the actual people and communities you impacted.
How your donation picks the video games we play:
1) Pick a game from this list: http://wp.me/p47vWj-6U
2) Donate as much as you want on this page! Leave the name of the game you picked as a comment on your donation. $1 = 1 point for the game you name.
3) Watch the broadcast on http://www.upickvg.com/watch-now from 8pm June 12th - 8pm June 14th (Eastern time) to see us play games. (Preshow: Friday June 12th at 7pm Eastern)
4) Profit!

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
