Donation Goals

To encourage you to donate to Child’s Play during the marathon, we’ve set up donation levels that will unlock as we reach certain monetary amounts.

Each level will either unlock something that the marathon crew will do live on the Webcast.  A description of each unlockable donation level can be found below.

Please help us give a huge amount to Child’s Play!

**NOTE** – All rows highlighted in Green have already been unlocked due to viewer donations.

Donation Goal Unlock
$100 Marathon Opening Dance opening-dance
Need $100.00 more to unlock
The tradition continues! Once we reach this modest donation level, we will prepare a fully choreographed dance to perform on our Webcast. Some will dance well. Most will dance horribly and make you laugh. Either way, it will be highly entertaining
$500 Underwater Hour underwater
Need $500.00 more to unlock
The underwate city of Rapture is beautiful to look at, but also haunting in how it has degraded over time. Our marathon headquaters won't nearly be as frightening as that, but it will definitely make you laugh! For the next hour, we are all going to get into our swim trunks, wear snorkels and flip flops, and be forced to "swim" everywhere in the house.
$1,000 Mr. Bubbles Training Academy bubbles
Need $1,000.00 more to unlock
This is a game that we will unlock that can only be played during BioShock 1 & 2. Chat can force us to play it for a donation or two, but we also do it on a regular basis during the event. One person will be chosen to be a Little Sister, and their job is to solve some sort of puzzle. While they do that, there will be someone designated as a Big Daddy or Sister. Their job is to protect their Little Sister while they solve this puzzle. Trying to disrupt the process will be the other people in the room, designated as splicers, whom will throw / shoot foam and NERF weaponry at this chosen duo. We'll time how long it takes for the puzzle to be completed and hilarity will ensue we're sure!
$1,500 Booker Catch! booker
Need $1,500.00 more to unlock
Our own Chelsea will don her Elizabeth costume and will proceed to throw stuff at our current player while exclaiming Booker Catch! Anything that Chelsea, or any other Elizabeth who may be in the house, throws at the player, the player must attempt to catch while continuing to play the game. If the player catches it, they must do something with it. If it's food they must eat it. If it's a drink they must drink it. If it's a book they must read from it, etc. If they drop it, they get penalized in game by not being able to loot until they catch the next thing.

Chat will get to choose one player, and they will then be told a set of differing factoids by our own Robert and Rosalind Lutece. One of the statements is true, while the other one is false. The player will have to figure out which one is correct for prizes, glory, and entertainment!
$4,000 BioShock Fan Fiction Reading gray
Need $4,000.00 more to unlock
There is some really great Fan Fiction out there in the world. We fully encourage people to go out there and write more stories! For our purposes though, we are more interested in stories that would be more accurately described as horrible. We will pick out some of the worst / funniest / hilarious BioShock themed fan fiction and will dramatically read it for all to see!
$4,500 Condiment Shots gray
Need $4,500.00 more to unlock
What in horror and delight as we put random condiments into shot glasses, blindfold ourselves, and then drink them at random! This is a crowd favorite that is back for another marathon, and while it may be absolutely disgusting, boy is it funny.

$6,000 Will The Circle Be Unbroken Performance slots
Need $6,000.00 more to unlock
Our own Mikey is going to perform Will The Circle Be Unbroken from BioShock Infinite for your listening pleasure! While he doesn't know how to play a guitar, he does play a really mean ukelele. He's also a pretty good singer I guess.
$7,000 Albert Fink Presents God Only Knows only-knows
Need $7,000.00 more to unlock
The opening of BioShock Infinite is memorable, and one of the best parts of it is hearing the barber shop quartet rendition of God Only Knows by The Beach Boys. We are going to attempt to recreate that a capella song with our own crew and we certainly hope that you'll enjoy it!
$8,000 Silent Movie Hour only-knows
Need $8,000.00 more to unlock
The stream will be put into a Black and White overlay (if possible). Everyone in the room will only have 5 Blank Cue Cards.

$10,000 Joey V Tattoo tattoo
Need $10,000.00 more to unlock
Back when we started this whole gaming marathon series, we thought it would be funny if we forced Joey V to get a tattoo at a certain donation amount. We never anticipated that we would actually reach that level, but we did. Now, Joey V has a huge Mass Effect themed tattoo on his right arm. The tradition will continue, assuming we reach this donation goal, and Joey will get a BioShock themed tattoo during the marathon!
$11,500 Joey V Slimed & Antiquing slime
Need $11,500.00 more to unlock
Remember the early days of Nickelodeon when they would dump green slime on anyone and everyone? We sure do and it brought so much joy to our lives. Fearless leader Joey V will be taking one for the team and redoing a fan favorite event; Antiquing & Sliming. We have the original recipe for Nickelodeon slime and we are going to make it. In addition, Joey V will be hit with flour as well, so it'll be the gaming marathon version of tarred and feathered. He's going to look like a mess!
$13,000 Grayscale Costumes gray
Need $13,000.00 more to unlock
There is a certain aesthetic that the BioShock games invoke. While there were some color movies during the time periods for both BioShock & Infinite, we thought it would be fun to go back to a time when Black & White film was the only option. Watch as some of our staff members undergo a radical costume change!
$15,000 Past Marathon Tear Opening gray
Need $15,000.00 more to unlock
For helping us reach our overall goal for the BioShock Marathon, we're going to open up a tear in reality, and bring back an event of your choosing from a previous marathon. Vote in the poll below to let us know what you would like to see! Whichever one gets the most votes, we'll have one hour to try and prepare it and then perform it for you.
