240p Club Teams up with PAWS for Mega Man for Mega PAWS Event!

240p Club Teams Up with PAWS!

For Immediate Release:
On July 21, 2016, the 240p Club published our first podcast. In honor of our one year anniversary, Metallic Joe, Nikki Tuonela, Lord Kuddy, and John Filoon will team up on August 6, 2017 for a Charity Twitch stream benefiting the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). We will be playing all six Mega Man games for the NES in order and racing to the finish. A donation box will be available on our Twitch page. All proceeds will go to PAWS!

What is the 240p Club?
The 240p Club is a dedicated Podcast / Twitch channel that focuses on retro games exclusively. We've covered such topics as the Atari / E.T. Landfill, the NES Classic and the SNES Classic, and numerous games of yesteryear including Streets of Rage vs. Final Fight, Top RPGs of All Time, and a special 30th birthday podcast dedicated to The Legend of Zelda.

We've also streamed many NES, SNES, and Genesis titles on our Twitch channel under the names NES Midnight Madness, SNES Midnight Madness, and Midnight Megadrive Madness.

What is PAWS?
PAWS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is the city’s largest rescue partner and operates two high-volume, low-cost clinics serving pet owners and rescue organizations that lack access to affordable basic veterinary care. Through its three no-kill shelters and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for thousands of animals each year. PAWS is working to make Philadelphia a no-kill city where every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
Every year in Philadelphia, nearly 22,000 homeless, abandoned, and unwanted dogs and cats enter the city’s animal control shelter. Nearly a quarter of them – over 4,000 pets – never make it back out alive. PAWS is committed to reducing that number, and to leading Philadelphia toward becoming a no-kill city. We do so through comprehensive rescue and prevention efforts: pulling at-risk animals out of the city’s shelter and placing them in loving adoptive and foster homes, and providing low- or no-cost veterinary services and spay/neuter surgery to disadvantaged pet owners, enabling pets to remain as cherished family members rather than face abandonment and preventing the birth of unwanted litters.

Why did the 240p Club Choose PAWS?
On July 2nd, 2016 the members of what would become the 240p Club met at the Kawaii Kitty Cafe in Philadelphia to discuss the new project, while having a tea and being surrounded by adoptable kitties! Kawaii Kitty Cafe works with PAWS to find these cats homes. As the 240p Club was started around cats, and the fact that we're all avid animal lovers, a charity stream to honor PAWS and their efforts was a very logical decision.

What Can I Do to Help?
Tune in August 6th, 2017 at Noon EST (www.twitch.tv/240pclub) and donate to the shelter! Also spread the word to all animal-loving friends to donate as well to help get a homeless pet a forever home!
