UPDATE 7/11: Kyle's PayPal account is verified and can now receive more donations!

To see the current donation total, click here.

-----------------------------------------

Tonight at 7PM CST (~45 minutes from this post) I will be doing a stream marathon in an effort to raise some money for Kyle. (If you don't know why I'm doing this, read this thread)

Q: What is this donation drive for?
A: Kyle "ghos7ayama" Marich is a friend and former teammate of mine. On Saturday, July 6th, Kyle's sister was in a near-fatal car accident. Kyle's family is giving up everything they have to cover the staggering medical costs. I want to help.

Q: Do these donations go directly to Kyle and his family?
A: Yes. The ImRaising donations go directly to Kyle’s PayPal account. The money never touches my hands.

Q: When does the marathon start?
A: At 7PM CST (USA Central time).

Q: How long will this marathon go for?
A: Until I pass out.

Q: Where is the stream?
A: I’m hosting it on my channel @ http://twitch.tv/langeh

Q: What games will be played in the marathon?
A: The main event is a blind playthrough of Metro: Last Light. If that gets old, I have Space Channel 5: Part 2 ready to go. I can of course also play TF2, do some (very slow) Portal speedruns, or take suggestions from the chat.

Hopefully I'll be joined by various TF2 persons throughout the night to help keep things light and entertaining.

POST-MARATHON UPDATES

7/10/13
Kyle's PayPal account was frozen due to the tremendous surge in activity. This is normal operating procedure for PayPal, and is nothing for us to worry about. We went through the same thing with both Tip of the Hats and i49.

I will be holding Kyle's hand through the process of getting the hold lifted from his PayPal account. He will get all the money that you guys donated.

Until Kyle's account is unfrozen, I ask that people hold off on donations. Having people donate to a secondary PayPal, account only to transfer it to Kyle's later, does not make sense. It will likely just cause more problems. Kyle and his family will still be here a few days from now when the hold is lifted, should you still want to donate.

Thank you all for your unparalleled generosity. It is awe-inspiring.

7/11/13
I just got off the phone with PayPal. The good news is that although Kyle currently cannot receive any more donations, there is no hold on his account preventing him from withdrawing the current funds. He has full access to everything you guys have donated thus far.

All Kyle has to do to remove the hold preventing him from receiving more donations is verify his identity. This process can take a few hours or a few days. I've told Kyle exactly what he needs to do, and he will do it when he has time.

Thank you all again for the tremendous outpouring of support. It means the world to Kyle, his family, and me.

The donations are still coming in, and thanks to yet ANOTHER generous donation from the conjurer of feces himself (shitwizard), the current donation total is...

$7,000.00

I am blown away by the amount of support you guys have shown. Thank you.

Yesterday, an anonymous donor gave $1000 to the fundraiser, bringing the total well over $8000.

Smart. Everybody spread the word in groups you can, also going back to your pub home and posting on their forums could help.

Yeah, I can't expect that there would be a goal. Doesn't make sense.

BTW, this is the direct donation link; it's not present in the FAQ at the moment.
