In 2012, the Retro Gamers Society (founding sponsor of SUPER! BitCon) adopted Rick Swyden’s non-profit organization “Hotdogs for the Homeless” as its charity of choice. Rick started this incredible organization as a way to reach out to the less fortunate by way of providing a weekly meal that many depend on. Alongside the meals come socks, toothbrushes, and other supplies that are often seen as staples by the fortunate among us, but as luxuries by some below the poverty line.

The event is a 24-hour meet-up where we play video games live on the web to raise both funds and awareness for this important cause!  There are various challenges, competitions, dares, sales, and auctions all along the way.  RGS members who can’t make it to the event can tune in via the web, as well as help raise money in the month prior to the game-a-thon.

We will begin taking donations August 1st. This year’s stream goes live at 7PM, Friday September 4th.  Last year we raised $4,500!

All of the proceeds from our game-a-thon will be donated directly to assist Hotdogs for the Homeless operations. There are many reasons people fall below the poverty line and into homelessness, ranging from mental disability to PTSD to simply falling on hard times. HftH is a fantastic way to lend a helping hand to the less fortunate in a tangible, life impacting way. Unlike passing cash to a panhandler, you know where your donation goes and how it is spent. Whether they be unwed mothers, impoverished children, or the homeless: those who show up to benefit from Rick Swyden’s organization’s generosity feel the difference your financial assistance makes. HftH provides toiletries, care, and meals for the impoverished and disadvantaged — a needed and appreciated service that we are proud to encourage and support.

Thank you for your generosity in donating!
