TrueAchievements.com Presents The Ultrafun: Halo Forever! (For a day)

TrueAchievements is proud to announce that we are holding The Ultrafun: Halo Forever! (For a day) with the goal of raising money for Child's Play.

We have staffers broken up into two teams, Red&Blue, who will be playing the campaigns of Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo: Reach on Legendary in 4-player Co-Op. They will be kicking off at 1:00 PM GMT (8:00 AM EST) on July 2nd (this Saturday) and not stopping for 24 straight hours.

As we raise money and pass certain milestones, the teams will back out to the main menu add a SKULL, and resume their playthrough with the new skull challenges implemented. Ergo, the more you donate, the more skulls will be added and the more "fun" this challenge will be! Here are the donation milestones:

• IWHBYD Skull - $100

• Grunt Birthday Skull - $150

• Cowbell Skull - $250

• Catch Skull - $500

• Fog Skull - $1,000

• Tough Luck Skull - $2,500

• Famine Skull - $4,000

• Thunderstorm Skull - $6,500

• Tilt Skull - $10,000

• Black Eye Skull - $14,000

• Mythic Skull - $20,000

It has also been hinted that, if we pass $50,000, the teams will commit to playing at least 30 straight hours... or until they pass out.

In the event that the teams SOMEHOW manage to beat the campaigns of all three games before the 24 hours elapses, they will move over to Halo: Reach multiplayer and take on members of the community in "Big Team Battle" with all eight staffers facing off against eight community members at a time.

If you'd like to add your voice to the Twitter/Ultrafun movement, be sure to use the hashtag: #theultrafun

Finally, and best of all, we will be streaming live on USTREAM as well as capturing video and posting highlights next week.

Donations for the event are now open.  Donations are being taken via the event’s ChipIn Page. NOTE: ChipIn works with PayPal accounts.

At TA, we realize that times are tough, and money is tight right now, but remember that every dollar you donate goes to buying games for children in hospitals... children who need that mental distraction and brief respite from illnesses that sometimes don't have a cure. So, please, if you can, give generously.
