30 days, 90 releases, one beautiful cause

Forty C3 authors come together to ask the help of the community to make childrens wishes come true in the first ever customs marathon

C3 is a group of passionate Rock Band players that was born in the aftermath of Harmonix bidding goodbye to Rock Band 3 DLC releases in April 2013. We wanted to keep the interest in the game alive by providing new weekly content and at the same time protecting Harmonix original work by not allowing distribution of any official produced content or copies of that content.

When Rock Band 4 was in development it was also our privilege, through the amazing work of C3 Founder espher and the interest from the management at Harmonix, to contribute to the renewed interest in the game by producing all harmonies for legacy content that was not yet supporting them.

We love the work of Harmonix and on a daily basis we encourage people to buy content for Rock Band 4 and Rock Band 3 and we are proud to do so. Now that Rock Band 4 with its Rivals expansion has garnered an amazing following, Rock Band 3 has a niche but passionate audience of people who play Rock Band 4 and buy content for that game but still come back to the old platform to play keys and to enjoy some great user generated content.

And its for that audience and for everyone who loves the game that today we announce a new initiative that we hope will get as much support as possible. C3thon is a 30 day customs marathon with the goal of raising as much money as we can for a good cause. Over the 30 days leading up to Christmas, 40 C3 authors will tag each other in and out to release content every 8 hours every day from Friday, November 24th to Sunday, December 24th. The community will receive a new release (singles, packs or albums) from a different author 3 times a day.

Here is the kicker: for every song you download that you would have downloaded even if you had to pay for it, we ask you to donate 90 cents to the cause that we have chosen, the Make-a-Wish foundation. Make-a-Wish* helps children and kids fight against life threatening diseases by granting their wishes, giving them the strength and the will to overcome their illnesses. This is a fully fledged honor system: if you can donate were infinitely grateful, and if you cant you are free to download as many songs as you want. Every single donation though will help us reach a bigger goal and help people who need our support.

The following is extremely important: money goes directly to the Make-a-Wish foundation without us putting a finger on it. Donations are collected by the foundation itself using the RallyBound platform. This is crucial to us: we have chosen Make-a-Wish specifically because they have their own collection system and we are not involved in any way in that part of the process. Make-a-Wish is an excellent foundation, rated very highly on Charity Navigator if you want to check it. You dont have to trust anybody else with your money: we have no part in collecting donations at all, we are only here to raise awareness and ask for your help.

During the month of November up to the 24th we will release more information on the initiative, including some special events we have planned and we look forward to a huge turnout. We will also introduce you to the amazing group of authors who signed up for this project with a passion that cannot be overstated. For now, just know that you should start saving up because were going to give you plenty of reasons to donate!
 
 
* We are in no way affiliated or partnered with Make-a-Wish, we only set up a fund raising for them.

And in case anyone here missed the teaser video:

https://vid.me/5lPT4
no embedding sadly because YouTube would have blocked most of it
 
As always, the video has authoring errors already fixed and in this case some previews are missing pro drums: ALL releases will feature pro drums, it's simply a recording issue. Thanks to everyone involved in recording and to TheSheepQueen for the video editing and packaging.

How about paypal or creditcard?

Hey why not set up a 'just giving' page so that we donate through that that they then send the Money to Make A Wish.

 

That way would know how much this great idea raised. Also just giving have the ability to tick a box to save the tax too, so more goes to the charity.

When I set out to look for ways to fundraise I couldn't find much that fit my requirements (I didn't know about Just Giving until now). We DO know how much money is raised though because the RallyBound platform takes care of that, on top of getting money directly to the foundation instead of going through us. Next year if this experiment goes well we will certainly capitalize on this experience to choose from a wider array of charities. :)
