Below is some info about the event and how it came about. Check out the website to donate and to see how close we are to our goal!
PONG for Hope was born out of the desire for the Lifeblood Youth group of First Church of the Nazarene in Warrensburg, MO to do something bigger than we had ever done. It started last year as we participated in the 30 Hour Famine, like we usually do every year. Tired of just collecting a few small donations, the youth group wanted to do something that would both reach out to a larger population of people, but also to raise awareness of different issues facing people in the world.
There is no larger audience than the internet! So, being inspired by Desert Bus for Hope which raises money for Child’s Play, we came up with PONG for Hope. The idea is simple. You donate money, the more money that comes in, the longer we play the original arcade game of PONG. PONG may just be the most boring game in the world nowadays, and rest assured, playing it for days on end is no fun! But it is funny to make us play longer, and we love it because we raise more money for those in need.
This year, we have selected the American Heart Association as the recipient of our efforts. Heart attacks and strokes are the 1st and 3rd causes of death in Americans, chances are if you are reading this, you have been affected by heart disease either directly or in the form of a friend of family member. All donations from this year’s PONG for Hope will be going directly to the American Heart Association to help fund further research for treatment for heart disease, and to help raise awareness to help save lives.
Thank you for helping us out by donating to PONG for Hope. May God bless you indeed!
