The Fellowship’s Walk: A Child’s Play Event

September 20, 2010

Fellowship Walk

This fall, a very special Fellowship will undertake one of the most epic journeys of virtual Middle-Earth. The Fellowship’s Walk is an online fundraising event for Child’s Play Charity, an organization providing toys and games to sick kids in hospitals.On the traces of Frodo and his friends, our team of writers will walk from Bag End up to Rivendell, and maybe beyond. For every donation made to Child’s Play, our Fellowship will take one step further towards the healing house of Elrond.

Join us in our journey, donate now and help us make it to Rivendell!

During the Fellowship’s Walk numerous giveaways, special interviews and online events will be going on!

About Child’s Play

cp_nodateChild’s Play is a charity nurtured by the gaming community since 2003. Its mission is to donate games, movies and toys to sick kids in children’s hospitals. So far, over 5 millions dollars worth of toys has been distributed through Child’s Play, helping children around the world go through hard times.

A father testifies:

Thank you so very much for what you’re doing. To be sitting there with your child who can barely move for all the tubes and wires connected to him, who hasn’t been able to eat for days and hasn’t been home in weeks, who can’t remember the last time he didn’t feel awful and wonders if he’ll ever feel good again, and have him laugh out loud when he crashes his go-kart in a video game… well, there aren’t words so I won’t try. Again, thank you.

About the Fellowship’s Walk

This Child’s Play fundraising event will take place from September 23rd, the actual departure date of the original fellowship from the Shire, up to October 24th, when Frodo woke up in Imladris. Every night, at 9 p.m. (EST), the members of the Fellowship will walk the land on the Landroval server, moved by your generosity.

    What an excellent idea, and for a great cause. I can’t wait to see you folks make the journey.

  2. Sparthir Says:

    Departure at Bag Ends? Is it Ends or End?

    Good luck with the fund-raising though. This is an awesome idea. :)

  3. Paislea Says:

    Wonderful idea! I’ll definitely be chipping in. :)

  8. Charles Says:

    Is there a minimum amount ?

  9. Lara Says:

    What a marvelous idea! You guys are awesome. We’ve posted on our FB and Twitter pages to help spread the word – will also post on our blog. Please let me know if there is any other way we can help.

  10. Patrick Says:

    So, is everyone at Tom Bombadil’s house, or at the Great Spire?

  11. Hobbitmeister Says:

    This was such a good time ingame. I was there with one of my many alts ;). I thought it was kind of comical when Goldenstar lost her “follow” tracking on Kiarane and headed off the road.

  12. Keli (Evernight) Says:

    Fantastic job, well done all of you involved

  13. Thamorian Says:

    I just donated $100. I think this is a fantastic cause to donate to.

  14. Ghingeriel Says:

    We have passed Bree!!! :-)

  15. Tinki Says:

    tinki is glad to be a small part of this outreach. Tinki wishes not to be entered for prizes. She is well to do :)

  16. Englebert Says:

    It was a lot of fun playing with the Eriador Music Society as the “Get Us Out Of Bree” Party tonight. Great cause, I hope you folks can make it to Rivendell *before* the 24th. I donated what I could spare from this paycheck. Keep up the good work.

  17. Seth (Eldar) Says:

    Had to donate a wee little bit, the “I get annoyed at 99 contributors” comment in the podcast made me chuckle :)

  18. Grunior Says:

    Can’t join you (travelling around) because i’m playing on an European server. Nevertheless, Childsplay is worth every penny, cent, lira (darn, extinct – at least in Italy), sen – you name it.

    20 Euros from me – so try to make your president keeping exchange rates low. ;)

  19. McQuiggin Says:

    The goal is almost there! Come on everyone! Donate! Donate! Donate!

    This is such an awesome thing that you guys are doing. Keep up the great work!

  20. Ghingeriel Says:

    Yay!!! Wonderful job CSTM! =)

  21. Feramere Says:

    Unfortuantley, we most likely wont see everyone due to dynamic layering:( Took the epic part from the event. (Seeing everyone do the walk)

    Goldenstar Says:

    We did have many join us and we dragged them into our layer. We had others see us walking and /wave as we passed. Layering made it an extra step but not impossible to enjoy. We’ll see as we get to Bree. The Shire wasn’t much problem at all.
