Gamers Fight Hunger With Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Marathon

Somalia faces a hunger crisis. The small country off the eastern coast of African receives little rain, which has caused major food shortages. A group of gamers is hoping to fill some hungry Somali bellies by playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Don't Revive Me Bro and Quantic Gaming, in association with Battlefieldo and Battlefield developer DICE's community manager, Daniel Matros, are putting on a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 event this weekend. The group will be playing the game while raising money to supply Somalia with foodstuffs.

Donations are already being accepted through GamersOutreach. Over $2,000 has already been raised, and for every $500 that is donated, a raffle takes place where a variety of cool items from Gunnar Optiks, Astro, and other companies will be given away.
