Full Restore Presents Pokemon Live Stream For British Red Cross

Full Restore is a group of six students from the University of Aberystwyth who have found a unique way to combine their love of Pokemon with raising money for charity.

The team will livestream Pokemon games for 100 hours non-stop starting on Friday 29 March 2013 at 7PM and finishing on Tuesday 2 April 2013 at 11PM.

Viewers can watch online and, in return for donations, give the players particular assignments and challenges.

"Our approach to livestreaming is quite unique, we have made it more interactive,' says Full Restore team member Benjamin Pracy. "People will be telling us how to play and what to do, and we believe it makes the whole experience more interesting and exciting for everyone involved."

Their website keeps track of all the donations so the players know whick task to complete next and which Pokemon to catch.

2013 marks Full Restore's third year of livestreaming and so far the team has raised over £8000 for the Red Cross Disaster Fund, attracting 30,000 unique viewers in the process.

"Events like this are a really important source of fundraising for the Red Cross and will ensure we can continue to support vulnerable people in crisis in the local area and overseas," says Red Cross senior community fundraiser Anna Fox.
