Rainbow Six Vegas 2 European charity event

 

In case you hadn’t noticed the RSS link to the story at XE, some friends of mine from across the pond, along with Gaming4Others.org, are working hard to raise funds for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children by way of an online Rainbow Six Vegas 2 tournament:

XboxGameZone, in association with Gaming4Others, are pleased to announce the first ever European charity gaming tournament to be held across Xbox LIVE. The event, which will take place on Ubisoft’s newly released Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2, will invite players and teams from across Europe to test their skills as they go head to head. But this time it’s not just about the winning – teams will be competing against each other to help raise money for NSPCC (registered charity – National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children), have some fun and maybe even win some prizes along the way.”

Registration is now open with full details listed here.

A fellow gamer needs our help

Ok everyone, it’s time to step up.

JVB from TalkingAboutGames.com made this post about one of our own in need of help. The gamer, who goes by the gamertag RagingJellyBean, is in need of a life-saving kidney operation but lacks the insurance to pay for it.

The great people at www.gaming4others.org have launched the Help RagingJellyBean Finish the Fight Tournament, sponsored by the Femmes Fatales, as a way to help raise the money for JellyBean to receive the treatment that she needs. Donations can also be made via Paypal.

The links above provide all the information about how you can help. Whether it’s a little or a lot, I ask that you PLEASE join in and help deliver this wonderful lady a second chance.
