Will Ferrell wants to play video games with you

Actor and comedian Will Ferrell launches an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for children with cancer. One lucky winner to play video games with Mr. Burgundy himself.

The world is filled with people who love video games and hate cancer. Actor and Comedian Will Ferrell is one such person.

Earlier this week, Ferrell launched the SuperMegaBlastMax Gamer Challenge Indiegogo campaign to raise money for two charities that aim to fund college scholarships for cancer survivors and provide monetary relief for families with children battling cancer. And he's offered up an incredible prize for those who donate.

One random winner and a friend will be treated to an all-expenses-paid trip to San Francisco to play video games with Ferrell himself, with the event livestreamed on Twitch for all the world to see. The winner also gets a VIP tour of Twitch headquarters, all sorts of swag, and brag-worthy pictures with Ferrell.

Those who don't win can still score some pretty cool perks. Anyone who donates at least $10 will receive a $5 Amazon credit for digital video game purchases, and SuperMegaBlastMax branded T-shirts, hoodies, sunscreen, and even a personal thank you from Ferrell, are all available to those who donate at certain levels.

The campaign needs to raise $375,000 to make the event a reality, and it's already raised over $41,000 toward that goal with 30 days left to go. If you love video games, hate cancer, and want to meet the legendary Ron Burgundy, you might want to consider donating.
