8 Bit Medics is a brand new organization comprised of EMS professionals who host various events in order to raise money for charity. We are proud to announce our inaugural event, a 72 hour Zelda Marathon, to be held August 8-10 on our website, 8bitmedics.com. 100% of proceeds from this event will go directly to This Star Won’t Go Out.
Join us live via Twitch TV on 8bitmedics.com, as we spend the weekend playing Zelda to raise money for TSWGO. Chat with us live on Twitter and follow us on Facebook.
We are incredibly excited about this upcoming event and hope that you will watch and donate to help us make it a huge success. DFTBA!
We’d tell you to clear your schedules, but we’re pretty sure a couple thousand of you already have since LeakyCon’s Open at the Close tickets go on sale at 2pm ET. Once you’ve bought yours, come hang out with us as we prepare for Esther Day with this discussion.
There are two weeks left to help us support our favorite charity, TSWGO, and receive a nice discount at our Etsy shop through Esther Day! All of the TSWGO items (pin, infinity earrings, shooting star jewelry, and mug) are on the top row of the opening page.

I basically get recognized wherever I go. I have a fan in my own college dorm. Don’t forget a lot of contributors to this blog (including myself) played a very small role on this real great book written by Esther Earl. I highly recommend buying it!
The [Esther Earl Rockin’ Charity Ball] is on Esther Day, and they’re gonna dance in [Esther’s] honor. Thousands of people dancing - ‘cause Esther, she said - and I’m quoting her tweet - “I just want to be able to reach into bodies and pull out the cancer without hurting anybody, and I want to be able to dance. And I want the gift of words.”
And she’s got it.
She can’t dance - she’s not here to dance - but every time we look around the room and we see people dancing, we see Esther. And every time somebody does something good and right and honorable, we’re doing the work that she can no longer do.
